According to Sir Steven Redgrave, if you’re thinking of getting fitter, losing some weight and generally improving your health, then the single best fitness machine for you is the Concept 2 Indoor Rower. Throughout his rowing career, it formed one of the main building blocks of his training. “No matter how hard I tried, I could never beat it. It never broke and it never let me down” he said.


The quality of the machine, the similarity to rowing on the water and the accuracy of the feedback enabled Sir Steven to attain a level of fitness and mental toughness far beyond anything he had achieved in his early days.

Now that he’s retired from competition, his training needs are different. His work and family commitments mean that he has very little time to exercise and, like everybody else, needs to combat the dreaded middle-age spread.

Despite all the changes to his lifestyle, and the pain he has endured in becoming a 5 times Olympic champion, it’s still the Concept 2 Indoor Rower that he turns to. As far as Sir Steven is concerned “It’s the best all-round fitness machine in the world, and suitable for anybody, not just international athletes!” he said.

Sir Steven added, “I’ve known the people from Concept 2 for over 25 years now, and it is no surprise to me that they have transformed what was once simply a training machine for rowers into the best fitness machine in the world. The product, the support and the company are all first class. Even though I am rarely going to be in a boat again, the Indoor Rower will still be my training companion for many years to come.”
