What is Concept2?

Concept2 is an exercise equipment company offering workout bikes, rowing machines and skiing machines. While the company started out with just rowing machines in 1981, it has expanded to offer a wide range of workout equipment and accessories with app connectivity and support. Concept2 sells its machines directly to clients from its facility in Vermont.

How does Concept2 work?

Concept2 has a range of exercise equipment, but the company specializes in rowing machines. It offers three options for rowers, ranging from straightforward models to high-tech models that mimic rowing through the water.

Most machines include a holder for a phone or tablet where you can connect its rowing and racing apps for a more immersive experience. These apps offer a range of additional features and functions, like live and on-demand classes, virtual racing and training programs.

Concept2 rower price

Prices for Concept2 rowers start at $900. This price gets you the company’s basic model, the Concept2 RowErg, which is also its top seller. For an additional cost, you can get the RowErg with tall legs.

The Dynamic RowErg, Concept2’s most expensive rowing machine, costs $1,250 at the time of publishing. This model offers the company’s closest simulation to rowing on the water, making it a relevant option for competitive athletes looking to practice at home.

Concept2’s skiing workout machine, the SkiErg, starts at $770, and its exercise bike, the BikeErg, costs $990 as of publishing. You can also purchase a SkiErg floor stand for an additional cost.

Concept2 backs its machines with a limited two-year warranty on all parts and a five-year warranty on frame parts.

Concept2 FAQ

Does the Concept2 rower require installation?

All Concept2 rowers are designed to be easily installed at home and do not require professional installation.

Does the Concept2 rower require a monthly subscription?

No, but its apps may come with their own monthly subscriptions.

What muscles does the Concept2 rower work?

Concept2 rowers exercise every large muscle group in the body. These rowing machines target your legs, back, abs and hands, among other areas.

Can you keep a Concept2 rower outside?

Concept2 does not recommend storing its rowers outside, even if you use the dust cover.

Is Concept2 worth the money?

While there are other more high-tech options on the home exercise market, most of them cost much more than Concept2’s machines. Because of this, these machines may be a good choice if you want to expand your at-home workouts but also want to supplement with other machines and equipment.
