Of the four rowing disciplines offered at Paignton Amateur Rowing Club, Indoor Rowing is the one that is clearly least affected by the weather. At the club house we have access to 6 'concept 2' erg rowing machines. Not only are they the perfect piece of equipment to teach someone the basics of the rowing stroke they are also a fantastic fitness training machine. There isn't a night down at the clubhouse where an ergo isn't being used, even in the summer months.
Over the winter months, at periods of around 6-8 weeks, we conduct a 2k ergo test to see how the fitness of the club's rowers is improving.
