Rowing offers a total body, low impact workout unequaled by any other sport. Unlike most activities, rowing incorporates the use of your legs, core and upper body. Rowers face backward in the boat and combine the power of leverage and precise timing to propel the boat through the water.

Capital Rowing Club’s Learn to Row Class

Designed for the beginner, this popular class will teach you the basics of sweep rowing (one oar per person in boats of either 4 or 8 rowers). Upon class completion, participants are eligible to join Capital Rowing Club.
