It was 2001 when Cheryl Hamilton came to interview for a position on Concept2’s customer service team. “They had a great reputation for customer service, which I’m very interested in,” she says, “and I’m also really passionate about health and fitness.” With her strong sales and customer service experience from working at the Stowe Mountain Resort, not to mention her sunny personality and readiness to laugh, she landed the job, and she’s been helping Concept2’s customers ever since.

Ahhh, rowing in the Olympics. Ballet on water. Power and grace on display with every stroke. Nothing short of inspiring.

You want some of that?

We’re not all Olympic-level athletes, but all of us can get a piece of that feeling of synchronicity, and that athletic look, regardless of our age or starting fitness level. Continue Reading ›

20 x 30 Seconds Full Power with a CrossFit Champion

Rowing is not like rowing. This is something I (painfully) learned last weekend during the CrossFit Regionals in Ballerup, Denmark, while I was working out with Mikko Salo and Juha Puonti from Rogue Fitness (manufacturer of CrossFit equipment). Mikko won the CrossFit Games in 2009. As a competitive on water rower, I usually row for 30–45 minutes at low intensity and a heart rate near 145. From time to time I go for 250 or 500 meter sprints for interval work. The workout on the indoor rower with Mikko and Juha, however, was totally new to me: 30 seconds full power followed by 30 seconds rest for 20 repetitions. Continue Reading ›

It is not easy to find athletes willing to do a maximum effort 2k on the Dynamic Indoor Rower then turn around and do it again on a Model D or E in the same season, but we are gathering as much information as people are willing to share on how times compare between the types of machines. Fortunately for us, Eric Murray of the New Zealand pair did just that with a 2k on the Dynamic Indoor Rower in January and then on a Model E last weekend at a New Zealand team test. Eric has been an early adopter of the Dynamic erg and has had about as much time on it as anyone. Continue Reading ›

A Color for Every Crew

A lot of us have seen it before: a brand new set of oars in the boathouse, just begging to be rowed, but they can’t be used until the blades get the school-color treatment. Or maybe it was race day when you realized that the paint job you had agonized over a few days before is already peeling! Fortunately, we’re now expanding Concept2’s blade color options to 53 colors in order to make it easy to get great-looking oars. Continue Reading ›
