Concept2 began in 1976 in the back of a bread truck when Dick and Pete Dreissigacker, fresh from Olympic training, started making composite racing oars. Concept2 oars have since gone on to become the oar of choice among the world's rowers, and innovations continue right to the present-day.
In 1981, Dick and Pete created the Concept2 Indoor Rower, which swiftly became the best-selling rowing machine in the world. Now several models later, it’s used every day by in CrossFit Gyms, by Olympic athletes, cardiac rehab patients, individuals at home and every caliber of rower in-between.
Since those early days they've grown to over 100 employees, and product line includes oars, the indoor rower, the SkiErg and the BikeErg. Though they’re much larger now, they remain dedicated to their philosophy of providing the most innovative products and programs to customers.
At XTC Fitness we stand behind Concept2 100%, that is why it's the only brand of rowing machine we carry! Industry leading quality and function make it the number 1 choice available. We believe that rowing is a lifelong activity, accessible to all and that Concept2 machines will be reliable machinery that will last.
With the addition of the BikeErg, and SkiErg to our collection of Concept2 products we can now provide buyers options to high-quality home and commercial exercise equipment in Canada.
