Get Your Erg On!


Registration and payment can be completed online, by phone at 906-487-2073, or at the SDC Ticket Office. Participants must sign a waiver of liability prior to participation. The SDC is not responsible for lost or stolen property. Please do not leave valuables unattended.

If you enjoy a low-impact, whole body workout or have always wanted to learn how to row, this is the class for you! Join members of the MTU Rowing Club as they guide you through the basics of rowing technique and coach you through fun and challenging workout sessions - all on the SDC’s brand new Ergometers (Ergs)! Initial sessions will focus on general stroke technique and progress to workouts that represent on-water sprints and head races.

If you already know how to row, you are welcome to join too! There are always parts of the stroke that might need some fine-tuning, and the progressive sessions will give you a chance to focus on your rowing endurance and power.

Individuals of all skill levels are encouraged to register, because indoor rowing is a great full-body workout and can be adjusted to meet the abilities of almost anyone!
