FREE Paddle Training!
FREE - Taste of Rowing/Indoor Rowing Session
Sponsored by the Genesee Waterways Center

When: March 10, 12:00 p.m. - 1:30p.m.

What: If variety is the "spice of life," then cross-training is the "spice of exercise." Whether you're into running, cycling, climbing, hiking or paddling, you'll find that indoor rowing will give you an effective cross-training workout, whatever your sport or activity.

Where: Training will take place at the Pittsford Indoor Rowing Center.  The Pittsford Indoor Rowing Center is a 5100 sq. ft. indoor rowing tank facility located on the historic
Erie Canal in Pittsford, New York.

Why: Perfect training for the SMP River Challenge Paddle Triathlon on Saturday, April 28th - part of the Unity Health System Flower City Challenge

Description: Participants will start on the indoor rowing machines. After a basic introduction, rowers will move over
to the tanks. The rower is seated next to a tank with his/her oar resting in the water. As the rowers slide through the stroke, the oar catches and pulls through the water in the tank.

The sport can be both recreational, focusing on learning the techniques required, and competitive where overall fitness plays a large role. It is also one of the oldest Olympic sports. Rowing continues to have success in the Olympics as the second largest participatory sport next to track and field.

Rowing is an exceptional total body exercise, promoting fitness, strength and flexibility through its extensive range of motion. It is smooth, impact-free, rhythmic and exhilarating. In addition to rowing being a great cardio-vascular activity, it strengthens the quadriceps, hips, buttocks, and upper body while sparing the legs of heavy pounding.

Register for this FREE session by sending an email to

We can accommodate 55 rowers and will base registration on first come first serve.

Please register for this FREE session by March 5th!

Spectators are welcome! Any other questions can be directed to Cindy Stachowski @ 585-328-3960

If you are interested in further rowing training, classes will be held from March 5 - April 28, Monday -
Thursdays and Saturdays, starting at $120. Visit for more information.
