The 9th Annual Holiday Challenge
...and a New Reason to Participate

Besides helping you maintain your fitness and fend off holiday weight gain and stress, we’re giving you the option of supporting a good cause with your meters rowed. Consider it a holiday gift to the planet.

For every person that rows at least 100k during the challenge, Concept2 will donate $.02 for every kilometer (1000 meters) you row to your choice of the following organizations: The Nature Conservancy, Conservation International or to the Alliance for Climate Protection. And once you get beyond 100k, we’ll donate $.04 per kilometer rowed. Our goal through this group effort is to raise a total $50,000 to support these causes. The usual prizes of pin and certificate will still be awarded as well. Note: For Kids and Adaptive rowers, the $.04 rate will take effect at 50k.

In recent years, we have had around 5000 people participate in the Holiday Challenge! We are hoping that this new incentive will bring in even more people and encourage past participants to row more meters than ever to help us reach our goal. Please invite your friends to join us. Our strength is in our numbers. It’s like rowing an eight: when you all work together in synchrony, you become greater than the sum of the parts.

How To Participate

It’s easy! All you have to do is row and enter your meters in your Concept2 Personal Online Logbook. The Holiday Challenge is not about speed but all about motivation and perseverance. When you reach either 100,000 meters or 200,000 meters, you will automatically receive instructions for claiming your prizes and certificates of completion. Don’t have an online logbook yet? That’s easy, too. Visit concept2.com/logbook for instructions.

I have started a cross-fit program and so far I'm really enjoying it.
Check your ego at the door, work at your own level and I think anyone, regardless of fitness or age, will benefit from this program. I'm on the wrong side of 40 but theres no reason I can't reach my goals while enjoying the process. I'm going to work hard, watch my diet and let Cross-fit & Andrew do the rest.

Couldn't have said it any better myself Andy. Kissing my ass isn't going to make the workouts any easier though, hahaha.
