WHAT: Rowing is a great full body strengthening, core, and cardio workout! The on-land studio classes in August will teach you proper technique that will help improve your experience for the on-water rowing in September. The studio classes are not required for joining the water rowing but will improve the experience and help you get more out of being on the water.
Paralympic rowing divisions are PR1 (arms and shoulders), PR2 (arms and torso), and PR3 (arms, torso, and legs). We’ll help you figure out which division you’re in!
WHO: Your instructor, Kerry Kingdon, a BORP participant, rows in the PR2 division and currently holds first place in the USA. She’s been rowing on and off the water for nearly two years, mostly in a single boat, but has also raced double.
