“You may have noticed that the Concept2 indoor rower is often referred to as an “erg,” and if you’ve listened to any on-water rowers talk about it, they probably call our machine “the erg” all the time. CrossFitters have been rowing long and hard, and last month, for the first time ever; “Row 2k” was the Workout of the Day. So, it’s time to bring you into the inner circle. You’ve earned it. Call it the erg. The literal definition of ergometer is “a device that measures work,” and this offers some insight into the intentions of Peter and Dick Dreissigacker, the founders of Concept2, as they developed their first commercial rowing machine. They wanted to offer an effective, realistic training tool for on-water rowers, especially for use during the winter months. It was important to them that the device be able to accurately measure work output and performance, so that rowers could measure their speed and distance as if they were on the water and track their progress–and so they could compare their own times across different machines and also compete with other rowers.”
