Everyone from beginners to hard-core competitive rowers love this row-anywhere boat. It’s stable, comfortable, ideal for rowing in wind and waves or gliding along on calm flat water. Rowers love the feeling of getting away from it all, out on the water, breathing fresh clean air while at the same time getting one of the best low impact workouts available.
Health professionals and fitness trainers all recommend slide seat sculling because it’s an amazing full body, low impact exercise. It utilizes up to 90% of your body’s muscles, including both legs at once to initiate the stroke. It burns twice the calories as jogging with no stress on the knees or joints. Perfect for stress relief, weight control, cardio, rehab and cross training. To learn more or to teach yourself to row check out How to slide seat row video by Olympic gold rower Adam Kreek.
