Working Out at Home

Mar 19, 2020

There are many ways to add novelty and motivation to your workouts at home. Here are just a few resources to consider. We’ll keep adding to this list as more opportunities become available.

Getting Started (or Started Again)

If you’re pulling out a RowErg from storage, dust it off and get rowing! Read our maintenance tips for getting your erg in shape.

The Concept2 Online Logbook is where you’ll find our community. Record your workouts, rank your best efforts, or join a challenge.

You might feel like mixing in other movements when using your Concept2 erg, so we came up with our favorite body weight workouts—no other equipment needed besides your RowErg, SkiErg or BikeErg. If the workout lists a specific erg, no worries. Any erg can be substituted in for the workout you choose.

Stay Connected

Look for workouts posted to our social media channels regularly.

We’re actively filling up the Concept2 Facebook feed with resources for training, coaches, and live training sessions. Follow us for updates.

The Concept2 Instagram feed also features lots of timely resources saved in the pinned stories.

Connect with other Concept2 users and share your workouts, training tips, and achievements, or just see what our community is up to. Check out our new Facebook group: Concept2 Community.

There are many other organic social media groups that have regular challenges and workouts. We don’t manage them and therefore don’t have any specific recommendations, but if you look around for more community options you will find them!

Follow Along

Concept2 offers a free podcast, As The Flywheel Spins. Coach Cady Hart-Petterssen guides you through entire workouts. With over 53 episodes (and new ones being created) there is always something fresh.
**Hot tip! Set up a video conference with a friend and do the workout together.**

You can also see what apps are compatible with Concept2 equipment that may help with your training goals. Many apps are offering free trials or waiving joining fees; now is a great time to download these apps and software.

We are curating a YouTube playlist of videos to train to. Sharpen up technique with Technique Videos on our YouTube channel.

Sign up and we’ll email you a Workout Of the Day (WOD) so you always have a workout to look forward to.

Join a Challenge

We've got a brand new challenge for the first two weeks of April—the April Fools' Challenge. Increase your erg distance each day!

The World Erg Challenge kicked off March 15, and it’s not too late to join. If you like to exercise for distance, get your team organized and GO! We expect big numbers this year.

Dryland Training

Rowing teams who are separated from their teammates and boathouses have ways to share workout results. Here’s how to stay connected to your Training Partners.

Our newest challenge, the Concept2 2020 Spring VIII Series, is a virtual team challenge that allows athletes to compete as a crew of eight from the comfort of their own homes. Team captains create one or more boats and choose their teammates. There is a different workout each week for five weeks starting April 6.

Phys Ed Class at Home

Incorporating math plus exercise while learning to use a family log or spreadsheet? It may just equal fun!

Parents who are homeschooling their children at home can take advantage of the equipment they own. We offer ways to set up your RowErg for kids and here are a few kid-friendly workouts, suitable for all ages and abilities.

Looking for a creative way to keep the kids (and you, too) active? Play Bingo!
