FREE ROWING CLINIC
Rowing is a total body workout - it works 84 percent of the muscles in your body. There's a common misconception that it's all about upper-body strength, but it's really about pushing with your legs and engaging your core. Recognized as the ultimate calorie burning exercise, indoor rowing is a great way to boost your metabolism. It provides one of the most rewarding forms of exercise as it works every major muscle group of the body and it is a great cardiovascular workout.
You control the intensity, so it’s perfect for all levels of fitness. With proper form, rowing is a workout like no other. Experts say that rowing at five miles per hour burns as many calories as running at 6.7 miles per hour (a pretty fast clip), and even burns more calories than indoor cycling. Rowing is also low-impact, so it’s safe and easy on your joints.
This 60 minute clinic will cover proper stroke technique, power production, changing intensity, understanding the display and will include a 20 - 25 minute workout.
VINYASA YOGA - ALL LEVELS
