Indoor Rowing

If youíve ever been in a gym, the chances are youíll have come across the Concept2 Indoor Rower. The Indoor Rower can be found in gyms, rowing clubs, schools and Olympic training centres around the world.

Rowing is impact-free and the intensity is completely user-controlled, meaning you can row as hard or as easily as you want, making it suitable for people of all ages and all walks of life. Participants have found rowing to be the best low-impact, full-body workout available.

  • It provides a superb aerobic workout.
  • It exercises every major muscle group.
  • It is a time efficient form of exercise and an excellent stress reliever.
  • It is weight-supporting and non-jarring and so is ideal for rehabilitative exercise.
  • It can be a very effective fat burning and weight loss exercise.
  • Itís a lifelong exercise, suitable for people of all ages.
  • It provides a smooth, rhythmic movement that is both safe and enjoyable.

The half-day course at Cardiff Bay Water Activity Centre is open to all ages, levels of fitness and experience. The course is primarily to teach beginners and more experienced participants how to improve technique and gain more from using the machine.

The course develops four core skills:

  • Introduce someone with no previous rowing experience to the machine and teach them how to row with good technique
  • Identify and correct the most common technical faults
  • Basic functions of the performance monitor to attain the best use of the machine
  • Helping individuals set and achieve realistic yet challenging goals.
