Indoor rowing is a whole-body workout that is gentle on the body and provides a multitude of physical and mental advantages. This exercise entails using an indoor rowing machine, commonly known as an ergometer, which mimics the sensation of rowing on water. It is a versatile activity suitable for individuals of any age, capability, or fitness level, and can be practiced at home, in a gym, or at a rowing club. Whether you aim to enhance your cardiovascular well-being, develop muscle strength and stamina, or seek an enjoyable and stimulating workout, indoor rowing presents a compelling choice to explore.

If you’re interested in trying indoor rowing, there are great options available to you.

The first option is to join a Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) Member rowing club. Rowing clubs provide a supportive and social environment where you can learn proper technique, improve your fitness, and connect with like-minded individuals.

Our RCA Member rowing clubs often have access to top-quality equipment and experienced coaches who can help you achieve your fitness goals.
