Labor Day Erg


Happy Labor Day!

Alright, alright, alright, practice if done well is not a labor of love. I get it. But practice does make execution better. Mind over water, mind over matter, working out the kinks, and all the other cliches associated with practice come true during race time. To be at your optimum performance there are no short cuts. 

I can’t vouch for any rowing machine except for a Concept2, but some of these rowers are packed with Labor Day savings at differing price points. TopFitness recently reviewed the features and value in rowing machines. See if one makes a difference for you:

Concept2 has set the standard and innovation beyond trends for 40 years.

Costco carries a variety of rowing machines including Lifecore and the WaterRower made famous on House of Cards. 

Dick’s Sporting Goods offers up to 46% savings on rowers. This cannot be combined with an additional $20 off $100 purchase for Labor Day. 
Gronk Fitness offers 3 versions of WaterRowers thanks to Rob Gronkowski. Even if you’re not a big Pat’s fan like me, check out Gronk’s amazing blog to “get your mind right.”


NordicTrack offers the folding RW2000 Rower for $599 down from $1299.

Overstock currently carries 42 ergs some with special Labor Day savings just for today. Free shipping too when spending over $45.


And for other stuff you may need with Labor Day savings:


Eastern Mountain Sports offers up to 50% off with an additional 20% off one item (there may be exceptions) with the code Summer20.


Land’s End offers 30% off with code CELEBRATE and pin 4418.
