If you own a Concept2 Indoor Rower or SkiErg then you can give your training a real boost by linking up to your machine with Training Mate.

Whether you are training for competition or as a recreational weekend rower, you can keep track of where you are against your goals with ease.

How does it work?

Our Concept2 plugins communicate with the PM3,PM4 or PM5 monitor on your ergo via a plugin and USB cable.

The plugins make your real-time performance data available to Training Mate, to track you against your training goals as you train.

But I can program the ergo. Why do I need Training Mate?

Yes, you can create workouts on the monitor directly.

But lets face it, it is fiddly to do, and you cannot include non-ergo parts of your workout.

Training Mate allows you to easily combine ergo and non-ergo parts of your training routines in the same workout.

Not only that, your ergo performance is tracked and stored for you as you train.

Which model(s) of Rower or SkiErg does it work with?

It's not so much the model of the ergo itself, but the monitor.

Our plugins work with the PM3, PM4 and PM5 monitors on either the Rower or the SkiErg.

So what do I need?

You will need to connect your computer and PM3, PM4 or PM5 monitor with a USB cable.

It is best to use a long cable, and to make sure that it is not going to get snagged while you train.

Then you will need the correct plugin added to Training Mate to join the two parts together.

How do I add the plugin?

From within Training Mate, click on the LINK button and choose the Concept2 category.

Click install, and grab yourself a license from this page to complete the setup.

How is my performance tracked?

The plugins make a number of targets available in your Training Mate library for you to use in your training steps.

Add target levels in your steps for the performance goals you have.

When you exercise with Training Mate, the metrics you have selected are tracked automatically for you.

Simply set your ergo into the "Just Row" or "Just Ski" mode and let Training Mate do the rest!
