“I’m a former competitive weightlifter turned rower, I still lift weights to stay in shape but my primary exercise these days is indoor rowing, which is also a growing sport that I now compete in. With more than 25 years of experience in the fitness business, I’m convinced that indoor rowing can be the most efficient, effective and challenging workout for the whole body,” said Mike Creamer, an NSCA and ACSM personal trainer and owner of the personal training gym Anatomically Correct. He said rowing is beneficial for building endurance and strength and it’s also ideal because regardless of age, anyone can do it. His workouts mainly consist of intervals. “I do this type of rowing workout three days a week. Typically the intervals range between two mins and 10 mins with rest periods of about half that time. The total workout time is usually between 20 and 40 mins and sometimes I do longer duration continuous rows.”
