The Concept2 SkiErg makes the sport of Nordic skiing available to everyone. Long recognized as delivering one of the toughest workouts around, Nordic skiing develops both strength and endurance and exercises the legs as well as the arms and core. The SkiErg can be used for both double pole and classic alternating arm technique.
The SkiErg uses the same flywheel resistance and electronic monitoring systems as our indoor rower, the proven choice of rowing athletes around the world since 1981, so you can rest assured that the machine is made to last. As well as being durable and well built, the SkiErg is sophisticated too, with an advanced monitor that provides immediate, accurate performance data.
Whether you’re an elite cross-country skier looking to improve your poling power, a weekend enthusiast wanting to get into shape for the ski season, or just someone looking for a great workout, the SkiErg will help you achieve your goals.
Why Use a SkiErg?
You no longer have to wax your skis to benefit from the full-body impact-free workout of Nordic skiing: the SkiErg provides all the aerobic and strength benefits, and is available even when there’s no snow or you can’t get to the trails. Even if you've never put on a pair of skis, the SkiErg is the perfect tool to help you reap the benefits of a skiing workout.
AN EFFECTIVE FULL-BODY WORKOUT
The Concept2 SkiErg helps you build strength and endurance by working the entire body in an efficient, rhythmic motion. Skiing is a low impact, high calorie burning exercise suitable for all ages and abilities. You are in complete control of the resistance: the harder you pull, the faster the flywheel spins, which creates more resistance.
A SAFE, EFFECTIVE AND CONVENIENT TRAINING TOOL
The SkiErg provides excellent sport-specific training using the poling motions that are integral to both techniques of Nordic Skiing. It also provides a range of resistance similar to that found on snow. The convenience of training on a SkiErg is hard to beat, especially when rollerskiing just isn’t an option—whatever the weather or conditions, the SkiErg is always available. It’s safer than training in traffic and is an easy way to add poling to your indoor workouts.
MEASURABLE, COMPARABLE RESULTS
The performance monitor gives you immediate feedback on every pull you take, as well as cumulative performance data at the end of your workout. The monitor self-calibrates, allowing you to compare each pull, interval and workout. The Concept2 Online Logbook and Ranking allows you to easily store all your times as well as compare yourself against other skiers worldwide.
A COMPLEMENTARY WORKOUT TO ROWING
If you already use the Concept2 Indoor Rower, you’ll find that the SkiErg offers a similar high-quality, full-body, impact-free workout—but with movements that complement the rowing motion. The SkiErg will give you variety in your workouts, with the same powerful performance monitor, extensive customer support, and enduring quality.
PERFECT FOR ADAPTIVE ATHLETES AND INJURY REHAB
The SkiErg is a low impact exercise that is easy on the knees and ankles. The SkiErg easily accommodates athletes with lower leg injuries: injured athletes can sit or kneel, reducing the amount of leg involvement, while training at normal intensity and duration using just the upper body and core. It's a great training tool for adaptive athletes, too!
