Letter: Rowing is a good workout for all

Rowing is good workout for people of all ages

I enjoyed reading Taylor Johnson's informative and well-written article about rowing in the Sept. 20 NeXt section of The News.
As an adult convert to the sport, I can attest to its addictive, sometimes grueling, but always enjoyable nature. My teammates and I have become good friends as well as rowing buddies. I would like to point out that Buffalo is now home to two rowing clubs. The Buffalo Scholastic Rowing Association is located on Ohio Street and is home to the Canisius, Buffalo Seminary, Timon and WNY Maritime Charter School crews, as well as our adult masters' crew. Our adult crew members range in age from 27 to 70.
We have just completed our first adult learn-to-row class and will be holding more in the future. If you want a good, non-weight-bearing workout, rowing is for you. We welcome newcomers as well as experienced rowers.
