Wisdom, Power, Confidence, Health, Beauty

Women are getting out of the house, out of the gym and onto the water! What is it that’s capturing their attention and stirring their passion for health, fitness and overall wellbeing? It’s rowing.

Rowing meets the 4 key requirements that fuel women’s wisdom:

  • Health
  • Fitness
  • Energy
  • Confidence

Rowing is a full body aerobic exercise, working so many of the muscle groups in the body that it delivers a total body workout in less time than it takes to go to the gym. Rowing works the muscles of the arms, legs, abdomen and torso as well as the heart and lungs, building endurance and strength- not to mention great shapely legs!

Moving out of the gym and onto the water, rowing offers an exciting change of pace and an easier, more desirable way to stay committed to health and fitness. Being in the open air, at one with nature and the serenity of the water, the peace and quiet nurtures the soul and provides a haven in the midst of a hectic lifestyle.

The energy that comes, not only from increased endurance and muscle strength, but from a deeper connection to their spirit and wellbeing, women are finding rowing to be an exercise in wholeness. Being one with the water, one with themselves and their surroundings, it is a peaceful meditation as well as a powerful exercise. The confidence and empowerment that fills a woman’s soul is nourishing to her daily life and overflows into her relationships, activities and overall sense of wellness.

Women are reaching out to others and forming rowing groups, sharing their wellness experience with others in a form of group meditiation and community. Women as young as their early teens to women well into their 70’s are turning to rowing as a vital part of their daily life. They are helping each other overcome their fears and build new confidence.

Rowing is quickly becoming the sport of choice for women in their middle years. “50 is the new 30,” is the phrase being coined by two of America’s top models: Christie Brinkley and Cheryl Teigs. “Our generation, the baby-boomers, have always been the driving force,” says Brinkley.

Baby boomers are a large majority of the population and these women want more from life. They want to be recognized, active and connected. What better food for the soul than rowing- a sport that meets all 4 key requirements for women’s wisdom?
