Boat fitness

Through regular boat practice you achieve aerobic fitness, improve your technique and timing. Once your speed fitness is enhanced you will develop the stamina to participate in the 200m & 500m races.

Our coaching team will be there to give you support to reach your goals.

Strength training

Can be achieved with the use of dumbbells, resistance bands, simple but effective aerobics, and your natural body weight - push-ups.

Improving shoulder muscles will ensure you are keeping your paddle as vertical as possible.

Developing strong upper and lower abdominal muscles is important for the reach extension. 

Ergo machine

Club members can borrow the use of an ergo machine for a max period of 6 weeks.
