Training

DTARC has a large recreation area on the first floor of the clubhouse. The Training Room, overlooking the River Dart, is equipped with more than 20 Concept Two rowers as well as a range of static bikes. There is also a separate weights area.

Indoor rowing is an essential part of training. For the beginner it helps to develop an understanding of slide control, body posture and technique, which aids water training. For the more advanced rowers the machines help to maintain high fitness levels through the Winter months and enable rowers to monitor their development.

The facilities are used by a wide range of people with varying abilities. Juniors, Novice, Veterans and rowers on the World Class Start Programme all make use of the indoor facilities.

An Indoor Rowing Club is run weekly for Men and Women who are interested in improving their fitness, but are not necessarily interested in learning to row on the water. These Classes are open to beginners and intermediate level rowers.

The Junior Training also involves general fitness training, including Circuits and Pilates.
