Are You in Skiing Shape? It's not too late! by Will Meyers
The Concept2 SkiErg makes the sport of Nordic skiing available to everyone and anyone of all fitness levels. It can also be said to one of the toughest workouts around and I agree. Nordic skiing develops both strength and endurance in which exercises the legs, arms, and core. The SkiErg can be used for both double pole and classic alternating arm technique.
It uses the same electronic monitoring systems and flywheel resistance as our 3 indoor rowers here at A2O Fitness. 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. It can track distance, speed, pace, calories burned, and watts. I favorite aspect of the SkiErg is the preset workouts features and game settings. Even better…..you can log your workout summery, store and transfer data via USB Flash Drive or Smartphone.
