How is your SkiErg mounted?

Post by Balkan boy » November 4th, 2015, 12:40 pm

I'm curious how is your SkiErg mounted at home or at a commercial training facility. :?:

Is the kit that comes with the machine enough to mount it to a concrete wall?
Is mounting a thick wood board to a wall, and then attaching the ski erg to the board a good option?

Also, if you use the C2 Floor Stand, do you find the whole setup stable enough for strong pulling?


Cheers.

This guy is really strong. If it's stable enough for him, it's stable enough for you I guess :-)

I guess you're right.
I know it works well with the Floor Stand, even if it seems wobbly.
I'm trying to decide if that stand is really worth the expense. I think it's overpriced, especially in my parts.

the hardware we provide with the SkiErg is for mounting to a wall with 16" stud spacing. Alternative instructions are provided for other types of walls. http://www.concept2.com/files/pdf/us/sk ... sembly.pdf
If you have a solid wall and you are not planning on moving the SkiErg around I would suggest mounting it to the wall even if it takes some extra work. One of the great features of the SkiErg when wall mounted is how little floor area it takes up. If you don't have a solid wall or you need to be able to move the machine around then go for the floor stand- it's plenty rugged for all users. C2JonW
