"Fit Bits"...by April Kassebaum, Certified Personal Trainer
A new feature offering timely fitness advice relevant to your Civic Center workout experience.

The Civic Center has a top-of-the-line Concept 2 Rower in the Fitness Room.  Rowing is a great total body workout that involves every large muscle group in the body...see picture left.  Rowing is easy to learn.  Once you know the basics, you'll be well on your way to reaching your fitness goals.

Here are some basic details when working out on the Concept 2 Rowing Machine...to insure you are maximizing your workout in a safe manner:

#1 - Place your feet in the proper position.  Adjust accordingly so that the strap crosses over the ball of your foot.  Tighten the strap...but not too tight!

#2 - Create the desired tension by adjusting the damper.  Lower settings make it easier to spin the flywheel.
#3 - Select "Just Row" on the console.

#4 - Grab the handle and make sure your knees are within the frame of your body and your shins are vertical.  No 'lazy' knees or you will hurt your back over time.

#5 - Make sure you finish with a straight (not arched) back.
It is 2,950 miles across the Atlantic.  Engage in a personal 'bucket list' fitness challenge.
Every 10 minutes on the rowing machine...is worth 100 miles across the Atlantic.  Try and make it across the Atlantic by Easter (March 27th).

Be stronger than your excuses!
