Lowell Caylor, a former NFL Defensive
Back, has been hooked on indoor rowing as his primary form of exercise for
about 20 years. Upon retiring from the software business in 2008, he
decided to establish Greenville

decided to participate in regional indoor rowing competitions and medaled

he had a heart attack in May of 2006 and survived. Having a 100%

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.

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
