Row Strong and Live Long

Welcome to Greenville’s FIRST and ONLY venture dedicated exclusively to indoor rowing. Please take some time to browse through our site and contact us with any questions you might have.

Not Sure What Indoor Rowing is All About?
You are not alone. Unfortunately, it has been a well kept secret at most health clubs. When people get proper instruction and are able to experience the many benefits received from rowing, they wish they had discovered it much earlier.

Indoor rowing classes are similar to spinning classes, except that every major muscle group is involved. Getting proper instruction is vital to attaining the proper technique. Recognized as the ultimate calorie burning exercise, indoor rowing is a great way to boost your metabolism. It provides one of the most rewarding forms of exercise as it works every major muscle group of the body and it is a great cardiovascular workout.

Study Supports Rowing for Astronaut Fitness
Dr. Benjamin Levine, medical researcher working with the National Space Biomedical Research Institute said the following on the Earth & Sky Radio Series:
We looked to the sporting world and asked, which athletes have the biggest hearts, the densest bones, the biggest muscles. And that was a pretty quick answer: it’s rowers. Levine said that rowing is a very unique exercise. He said it’s like a combination of weight training and endurance training. Plus the blood pressure goes up high with each stroke, so it’s a good, solid workout for the heart. And it appears the rowing regimen does keep the hearts, bones and muscles of astronauts fit, while cutting the time spent on exercise by more than half”.
In essence, indoor rowing is a very time efficient workout. Since it uses every major muscle group, plus cardiovascular, all in one exercise, you can accomplish more in less time than with any other form of exercise.

About Greenville Indoor Rowing

Greenville Indoor Rowing was founded by Lowell Caylor in the Spring of 2008.

Lowell Caylor, a former NFL Defensive Back, has been hooked on indoor rowing as his primary form of exercise for about 35 years. Upon retiring from the software business in 2008, he decided to establish Greenville Indoor Rowing, LLC, to share the benefits of indoor rowing with others.

While living in Denver, Lowell first became curious about the rower as he watched a very fit individual using it and he asked some questions about it. He realized the rowing machine was getting very little use in a very busy fitness facility and it didn’t take long for him to know he’d found a new, very accessible love. He later bought his own for home use and has diligently trained on the rower over the years.

Having always been a competitive champion, Lowell decided to participate in regional indoor rowing competitions and medaled each time. Most recently he won the Gold Medal in the Mens Over 40 category at the Tennessee Indoor Rowing Championships. His passion for this form of exercise really hit home when he had a heart attack in May of 2006 and survived. Having a 100% blockage of the right coronary artery, Lowell’s cardiologist was amazed that he was still breathing. While performing the angioplasty and stent implant procedure, his cardiologist made the statement to him, “that piece of equipment (the rower) saved your life”!

Lowell is a certified indoor rowing instructor and is affiliated with Concept2, the company that created the premier indoor rower. The Concept2 rower is the one that all others are measured by and the primary equipment used for training and competition by college rowing crews and rowing clubs around the world.

In his own words Lowell states, “I think this piece of equipment is the best there is for overall conditioning. The machine works every major muscle group, plus cardiovascular, all in one workout. It is also low impact so your knees and ankles don’t take the pounding you get from running or jogging. It’s truly an exercise for all ages and all fitness levels”.
