Rowing is among the most romantic and elite of all watersports. Silently sweeping back and forth, the world watches every four years with rapt attention as rowers compete for the gold at the Olympics. Slipping through the still waters of some far-off and exotic city at daybreak is the very picture of athletic elan. Yet, out on the water, you’re alone, competing against yourself and your will to be better. The sport demands a great deal of mental concentration, personal determination, and whole-body physical fitness to accomplish. However, peak rowing takes years to master and a conscientious commitment to individual physical conditioning and bodily well-being.

The benefits of rowing are many and well-known. Firstly, it’s a low-impact, total-body sport. That means you can get a whole-body workout without tearing a tendon like runners sometimes do. Secondly, it’s accessible to novices and experts alike. From those who are physically disabled to competitive triathletes, all can benefit from and participate in rowing.

Further, it’s great for the cardiovascular system. A rowing workout can benefit those individuals at risk for heart troubles as rowing increases the oxygenation levels of the blood and strengthens the arteries, the heart, and the lungs. Lastly, it’s a very relaxing form of exercise. The rower enters a four-count, Zen-like meditative rhythm, reducing stress while increasing focus and mental clarity.
