Have you ever wanted to take part in the manly sport of Nordic skiing? Well, the Concept SkiErg makes it available just to anyone who’d want to try. This device has long been recognized as giving users the hardest workouts they can get. Since Nordic skiing develops endurance and strength for the core, arms, and legs, the SkiErg can be used to help you achieve these in the comfort of your home.
The Concept2 SkiErg makes use of the same flywheel resistance that has helped many rowing athletes around the world since 1981. The machine is made to last and is sophisticated with the advanced monitor it comes with. This monitor provides users with immediate and accurate data regarding their performance.
This performance monitor is the one that truly sets the product apart from other cross-country training devices. It is complex but easy to use, allowing you to assess your output accurately. People can keep track of their progress and even compare their scores with their friends. Each of the SkiErg models come with their Advanced Performance Monitor known as the PM5.
You can mount your SkiErg on a wall or use it just standing on the floor. The most compact option would be wall mounting, while the floor stand, with the anti-skid deck and wheels, gives an all-in-one solution for mobility. Whichever method of application you choose, it is really easy to assemble either way. All of the tools that you need to get the job done are provided in your package.

Also, the world’s most decorated obstacle racer and “the Michael Jordan of obstacle course racing”, Amelia Boone, uses the Concept2 SkiErg for her training when her lower body is injured. She used this particularly after knee surgery since it is a low-impact machine to maintain cardiovascular endurance as she prepared for the 2014 World’s Toughest Mudder. She won it 8 weeks after her operation.
