Indoor rowing is a great way to keep fit and a gateway to become involved with the sport. Two-time world champion, dual Olympian and Olympic medal winner Chris Morgan (AUBC) began his rowing career when he participated in an ergometer challenge at the Adelaide University Open Week – after winning the challenge (and a case of beer!) he learned to row in one of the start-up programs within the university and went on to represent the country many times over.
You don’t need to be a river rower to participate or pick up the handle! The ergometer is used across so many disciplines and sports, all are welcome to participate. The Australian Indoor Rowing Challenge is a great way to test yourself and set fitness goals. It is set to take place on 28 October at V2 CrossFit Adelaide – you can view the event details here.
