Winter Training

Although our water is frozen for half of the year, we can still get a good workout on the ergometer to keep up on our form and endurance.

What is an ergometer, you may ask? Well, the Greek-derived word literally translates into “work measurer”, but it’s more commonly known as the rowing machine, or an “Erg” as rowers will call it.

The biggest myth about rowing is that it is an upper body workout. Rowing works nine major muscle groups: quads, hamstrings, glutes, lats, core, shoulders, triceps, back and biceps. In addition, rowing is an amazing, low-impact, cardio workout.

The Cold Lake Rowing Club owns three Ergs, and borrows 4 more, to run our winter training twice a week. Each session is lead by one of our Coaches, who will make sure that you are demonstrating the correct form and getting the most out of your workout.

As limited spaces are available, registration is also limited. Please contact us at rowingcoldlake@gmail.com for more information on winter training.
