About Rowing

Rowing is a total-body sport which builds strength in the major muscle groups of the legs and trunk that also demands (and produces!) excellent cardiovascular fitness. As it is also a low impact sport that is easy on the joints, rowing is a great way to get or stay in shape. With an active membership and lessons at every skill level, Austin Rowing Club is a great way to learn the sport, meet great people and be part of a wonderful club.

Selected by Rowing News magazine as one of the top ten places to row in the United States, rowing on Lady Bird Lake is a great way to enjoy one of the most beautiful places in Texas while getting in a fun workout. The newly built Waller Creek Boathouse, located on Ladybird Lake, houses the Austin Rowing Club facilities and is an excellent place to start your exploration of both the Lake and the sport of rowing.
