In rowing I found a sport that demanded some skill, granted, but placed a much higher premium on plain hard work and persistence.


Let’s Row!

Rowing is one of the oldest sports on record, dating back to the ancient Egyptian times. Today’s rowing is graceful, combining technical efficiency in both style and equipment. Rowing provides participants one of the best overall cardiovascular non-weight bearing workouts for athletes of any age.

There’s something truly special about rowing with HRA – if you’re not afraid of a good workout and possibly getting wet from more than just sweat, then join us for fitness, friendship, and fun!

A critical component of rowing is safety. Club members are required to watch the USRowing Safety video and we recommend that anyone who may be considering rowing as a sport view the safety video as well.

There are many articles on rowing safety that can be found on the web. This article, Healthy Rowing: A Beginner’s Guide, written by Summer Banks, was brought to us by a Palm Coast, FL high school rower – thank you Derrick!
