Enjoyed by people who want to stay healthy by using most of the muscles in their body in a low impact way. Rowing particularly benefits the legs, back, and arms. But most importantly, rowing really develops your heart by conditioning it in a safe way. It also gives participants the feeling of individual satisfaction that many other sports cannot.
Mostly taking place on the water, you can still benefit from the same technique indoors on machines. It can be done for personal satisfaction or the thrill of racing other people.
