Winter Indoor Rowing

When the weather turns cold and the water freezes, the Indianapolis Rowing Center moves indoors for winter training.  This typically occurs mid-November and runs through March.  The current boathouse is not winterized, so IRC moves all of its rowing machines to another location and holds indoor classes there.  IRC pays a rental fee for this space, which is not included in the Annual Membership or Program fees.  As a result, there is a fee for winter training.  This fee covers indoor rowing classes from November through March.  

Rowing is a great total body, low impact workout, and is an awesome cross training activity for cyclists, swimmers and runners over the winter.  Come try us out, and then join us on the water in the spring!  Email if you are interested in a class.
