Rowing is an exceptional total body exercise, promoting fitness, strength
and flexibility through its extensive range of motion. It is smooth,
impact-free, rhythmic and exhilarating. In addition to rowing being a great
cardio-vascular activity, it strengthens the quadriceps, hips, buttocks, and
upper body while sparing the legs of heavy pounding. Minimum age is 18.
