Outdoor use

Post by Mbeecheno » August 2nd, 2019, 5:33 am

I live in the UK. Would I be able to keep the Erg outdoors and unprotected without causing it damage?

Doubt it. I don't think it would take to kindly to being rained or snowed on.
56m, 5'6" 160lbs, rowing and skiing (pseudo) on the Big Island of Hawaii.

If outside really is your only option for exercise I would consider getting something like the TRX suspension trainer. Not as much cardio as an erg, but you can use it outside (and unhook it in 2 seconds and bring it in).
