An Exceptional Learning Opportunity for the Masters Rowing Community

One of the things we love most about rowing is that it is a sport for all ages. Many of our customers are in their 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s! It’s incredible to see how rowers are able to keep active in the boat and on the erg, and how rewarding it is to participate in regattas, studio classes, and rowing clubs year-round.

But anyone of an “advanced age” will tell you: The rower’s body at 70 is not the same as it was at 30. While certain adjustments, like adding one of Rowing Pad’s foam seat pads for extra cushion and help with alignment, are simple and effective, much more can be done to prolong your rowing career and advance your rowing outcomes as an older rower.

Enter this unique and much-needed live webinar from the talented crew at Faster Masters Rowing! Titled “The Older Athlete & Aging,” the conference speaks exactly to the topic of how to row safely, comfortably, and effectively as you age. Rowing Pad is proud to sponsor the webinar and help spread the word to our rowing network.
