“It’s time for some good to come from the many hours at 6am this winter, spent on this infernal device – the erg.” cites Crilly. All our welcome.
Erging is an indoor, computerized rowing machine that simulates the action of rowing on the water. It is a fabulous, full body workout and keeps rowers in shape during the winter months as well as on inclement weather days.
All erg races will be the standard 2,000 meter piece (2k) and prizes will be awarded to the fastest in each race.
