Rowing is a dynamic, low-impact, full-body workout that tones and builds muscles in the upper body, lower body, and core. It’s a perfect cross train for runners, cyclists, and swimmers, and can actually serve as a quick cardio workout whenever you’re in a pinch. It’s truly an all-in-one experience. Needless to say, we’re ecstatic to add rowing workouts to Aaptiv’s other effective workout categories.
