ZOOM ERGOS

Erg together!

Getting on the ergo can be a lot more fun if you row alongside someone else.  Zoom Ergos has live workouts every day which you can join for as long or as little as you want alongside dozens of others, hosted by Olympic champions, World Champions, professional instructors and clubs.  

We've had more than 50,000 session sign-ups and hosted over 700  workouts for more than 5000 people - from Los Angeles to Sydney, aged 13 to 92, and from complete novice to some of the sport's best-known names.  Nearly half of those who have joined a session don't think of themselves as rowers - and some have even joined on a bike! Many have learned a lot from some of the world's best-ever exponents of the sport, and all of them have loved the sense of community that comes from training with others.  Our average growth rate for weekly session sign-ups and new members since the first week is 30% a week.  People are finding it fun. 

Our aim is to get to a point where we have a full schedule of work-outs across the day so that there is always something you can join, wherever you are in the world. Although the times listed are GMT, we are always on the search for people who can host workouts that are convenient for people all over the world. Whether you find yourself joining one person or 150 people depends on what the take-up is in your timezone, so let people know they can join, and let us know what you would like to see or if you can facilitate a workout where you are!

Please note that, as mentioned above, times on the site are UK times (GMT). 

DISCLAIMER

This site is put up to facilitate a sense of community among people who want to use rowing machines for fitness and well-being, by offering them the chance to co-ordinate the timings of their own workouts with others who may also be training.  We use Zoom, which you may be aware has on rare occasions been hijacked by people who want to post inappropriate images. Anyone under 18 should use the site only with the approval of an adult. All users, older or younger than 18, should note that you can make your own decision about outgoing video settings (and that leaving your camera on may mean that an image of you is tweeted or in some other way broadcast by other participants). Whatever outgoing setting you choose, and whether you select an incoming view of just the session leader or the gallery of participants, you do so - in either case - at your own risk.

We don’t make any judgment about your levels of fitness and we aren’t encouraging anyone to train harder than they safely should or would by themselves. Training alongside Olympic athletes doesn’t make you one, even if you can pretend  as much to your neighbour’s kids. You should be clear that you must take responsibility for your own skill levels, health and fitness - and therefore the level and intensity of exercise which is safe for you. We accept no liability if you injure yourself or do yourself any kind of damage from joining one of our sessions, and neither does the person leading the session. If you are in any doubt, you should take professional training and/or health advice and/or instruction before undertaking any exercise, on or off a rowing machine.

In short, we are here to make life more fun. Don’t be silly, and listen to your body when you are training.

CONTACT US

If you want to host a workout, or you have any thoughts or feedback, please get in touch.  The more workouts we have, the more people from the rowing community and from further afield we can get together!


And please let others who have access to an indoor rowing machine know about us. It's a lot more fun to train alongside others, and they can do so on a machine in a gym or at a club, taking the workouts in with them on a mobile phone.

THANK YOU

Many thanks to those who have enthusiastically supported this project by agreeing to host sessions.


Our aims are to help people in a very difficult time by providing what we know is an enormous community with a platform to support each other;   to get to an ever-widening audience of people, some of whom might not even have thought that rowing was for them, but who can - through the machine - start to feel the enormous benefits that the sport can bring;   and to link the grassroots of the rowing world to some of those at the very pinnacle of the sport (and vice-versa), giving visibility to and creating a sense of camaraderie for both.


You are helping us to achieve all those things. So thank you!
