Initial impressions of the TomTom Adventurer Outdoor GPS Watch

Last week I received the new TomTom Adventurer Outdoor GPS Watch to review from the gang at TomTom. It arrived […]

Upgrade your Concept2 indoor rower to a PM5 today

If you have a Concept2 erg and haven’t retrofitted your Model A, B, C, D, or E Indoor Rower to the PM5 performance monitor, I most highly recommend the splurge of $160-$180, depending on the model of your rowing machine.  Turnkey wireless everything you’ll need, including ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart. So now, heart rate monitors and […]

While I appreciate UCanRow2’s recent article, 10 Indoor Rowing Workouts to Kill 10K, I must admit that my secret is watching streaming movies off of Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon.
