Rowing away the Winter Blues!
For many rowing enthusiasts across the country; winter temperatures are not ideal for getting out onto the water to practice their stroke and get a good training session in. However, drastic improvements in the design and functionality of many indoor rowers (or ERG’s) has given rowing competitors as well as fitness minded people a great option to get a quality workout in while not having to brave the chilling temperatures felt across most of the U.S. during Winter months.
Gym owners and fitness studios everywhere are adding to their repertoire by installing high tech Indoor Rowing machines (ERG’s) where competitors are able to race against each other and fitness enthusiasts are able to track their workout by calories burned, distance, pace, and more. Another reason more and more people are jumping on the rowing bandwagon is that it’s one of the best full body work outs you can get! A 50 minute rowing session can burn up to 1,200 calories and simultaneously works your calves, quads, hamstrings, glutes, abs, obliques, pecs, biceps, triceps, deltoids, upper back, and lats! In addition to being a full body workout, rowing also has minimal impact on your joints – making it one of the fastest growing cardio and sporting choices for all ages alike.
