Why Use A SkiErg?
Strength and Endurance
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. The user is in complete control of the resistance: the harder the pull, the faster the flywheel spins, which creates more resistance.
The SkiErg gives you immediate feedback on every pull you take, as well as cumulative performance data at the end of your workout. The electronic Performance Monitor self-calibrates, ensuring your results are accurate and allowing you to compare each pull, each interval and each workout. Compare yourself against other skiers using SkiErgs worldwide.
For Skiers: A Safe and Effective Training Tool
The Concept2 SkiErg helps you build strength and endurance using the poling motion that is integral to all techniques of Nordic skiing. The SkiErg provides a range of resistance similar to that found on snow with the convenience and safety of indoor training.
Convenience and Safety
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 it makes it easy to add poling to your indoor workouts. The SkiErg can be mounted on a wall or is available in a free standing version.
Perfect for Adaptive Athletes and for Injury Rehab
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 upper body and core. It's a great training tool for adaptive athletes, too!
