Learning to row is a great way to push yourself, get fit, and expand an entirely new skill set. There have been many studies that show participation in outdoors physical activity to be extremely beneficial to mental health. The action itself is low impact, therefore those with common knee or ankle injuries generally find this is a movement which promotes strength and rehabilitation, while allowing the participant to push themselves aerobically. Currently our oldest active member of the Rowing community has just turned 94 – and he is still racing! This means that there is no age limit to those wanting to give it a try.
Rowing SA facilitates a Corporate rowing program which gives participants a taste of the sport; this is great for workplaces wanting to branch out for new and inventive team building days.
