No Time? No Problem. How I Fit Workouts into My Busy Schedule

Mar 21, 2018
There was a time (which now seems like a long, long time ago) when my workout wasn’t a rushed affair squeezed in between meetings, daycare pickup, and folding laundry. Recently, I found myself feeling a tinge of jealousy when I realized my friend who was working out after work had the luxury of a warm up, a long workout, a full cool down, and a long, hot shower in her own bathroom. My workouts these days used to be my warm ups. As a full-time working mother of two young girls, I’ve adopted a new exercise motto: “Something is better than nothing.” Here are a few suggestions on how to sneak in a little rowing, skiing and riding in your life, no matter what demands are placed on your time.

Cheering on Local Vermont Olympians

Feb 15, 2018
Vermont tends to produce more than its share of Winter Olympians (in fact, the highest number per capita in the United States!) thanks to its snowy climate and plentiful winter sport opportunities. This year is no exception. Here at Concept2, we’re especially excited for six young women who have trained at the nearby Craftsbury Outdoor Center, as part of the Craftsbury Green Racing Project. Four of them—Susan Dunklee, Ida Sargent, Emily Dreissigacker and Kaitlynn Miller—grew up in our neighborhood, skiing and running together often on our local trails. All six know the SkiErg well, and most have also done some rowing as good cross-training for skiing. Three are on the US Cross Country Ski Team and three are on the US Biathlon Team. Here’s a quick intro to “our” local Olympians. Continue Reading ›
