Fine tuning Web technique with Concept2 master instructor Terry SmytheIf you’re a home or gym user of the Concept2 rowing machine, we’ve got something new coming just for you: A half-day training that will get you tuned up and ready for new (or renewed) action on the world’s #1 indoor rower!  The workshop is part of our Flywheel Frenzy event at Owens Community College in Toledo, OH on April 12-13.

Join us for Indoor Rowing Foundations for Home Users from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday, April 13.  You’ll spend a comprehensive morning tuning up and learning new ways to make the most of the Concept2 Indoor Rower.  We’ll focus on:
– Optimizing your rowing technique, including personalized video critique
– Showing you how to keep your machine in tip-top working order
– Showing you new things you can do with the monitor
– Giving you a slew of new workouts, and
– Taking you on a tour of the Concept 2 website’s resources.
– Bonus: Meet the SkiErg!

Registration for the course is $95.  Just note your course and fee on the registration form.

Want more?  Join us the night before for a master class with Concept2 Master Instructor Terry Smythe from 6:30-8:30.  You’ll spend two hours in OCC’s fitness playground, combining the rower, SkiErg and indoor cycling with other equipment like TRX and free weights.

Register now: $45 ($15 for students) Note your course and fee on the registration form.

And for those who are teaching others or working with clients  on the rowing machine, we’re offering our Programming Intensive on Friday afternoon from 2-5 pm.  We’ll show you how to set yourself apart from the competition by mixing up your workouts with on/off erg work. Combine ergs, TRX straps, free weights and more to create a fat-blasting workout your members will rave about.  Have your rowing technique checked by an expert.  Learn how to use social media to get people into your classes – and keep them there.

Registration fee: $115

      Hi Joan, so glad you love your Concept2! We’re in the process of piloting the home user course and would love to do something close to you (we’re looking at potentially doing one in St. Louis later this year, for example). In the meantime, we have lots of other options to help home users and others fine-tune their technique:
      – If you have access to Skype or OoVoo we can do a live video review of your technique with a Concept2 master instructor
      – You can send us a minute or two of video of you rowing that a master instructor will review and give you feedback via email, phone or Skype
      – We can connect you with an Approved Concept2 Indoor Rowing Instructor near you who would also be a good resource (unfortunately we don’t have any yet in your exact area but there are some excellent ones not too far from you)

      Instructors can also help with your maintenance questions, but stay tuned too as we’re coming soon with a video series on various aspects of maintaining the machine.

      Questions? Just email [email protected]

      Row on!!!

    Hi, would you happen to ever offer a rowing class in Edmonton Alberta? I’m going to be teaching a rowing class but would love know more.

      Hi Sherisse, So glad you’re interested in certification! We are happy to travel anywhere as long as we can get enough people together and find a place to hold the training. Drop us an email at if you’d like to talk more about it.
