Ready To Row? The Challenge is Back in 2021

Rowing Challenge 2021 at CPM Fitness in Sioux Falls

It’s everyone’s favorite holiday-season challenge at CPM — the annual Rowing Challenge!

The challenge begins Thursday, November 25. Here’s what you need to know.

How the Challenge Works

The Rowing Challenge runs from Thanksgiving day until Christmas, giving you the momentum you need to head into a fit 2022!

  • Commit to rowing 50k (kids and beginners), 100k, or 200k meters between November 26th and December 24th on the Concept2 Indoor Rower, SkiErg or BikeErg.
  • After your workout, enter your meters in Your Concept2 Online Logbook. If you don’t already have an account, click here to create a free account.
  • Concept2 donates $0.02 per 1,000 meters rowed to charity; beyond 100k meters, they’ll donate $.04 per kilometer. 

The challenge buy-in cost is $30. This includes open gym time at CPMFitness to get your meters in, and accountability and education throughout the challenge.

Join the CPM Rowing Team

After you sign up on the Concept2 Online Logbook and pay your buy-in fee to be in the challenge, you’re in! We recommend that you set a baseline 2,000 meter time in the first week of the challenge.

The next month is up to you to row your committed distance. You can do this however you want — break it up daily, every other day, or be a weekend warrior!

We’ll program workouts to include a lot more rowing during this challenge to help you get those extra meters. If you don’t have access to a rower at home, you can come into the gym to row during any class time (on non-rowing days).

At the end of the challenge, re-test your 2,000 meter time and see the improvement!
