Indoor Rowing Essentials

It's the middle of January which means COLD temperatures in parts of the world. If the weather or the increase in COVID cases is keeping you off the water, or erging at home, it's important to be prepared for rowing and training indoors. Your summer training gear might be tucked away, you may want some new gear to motivate you through your erg session, or you're looking for the perfect erging apparel. We have assembled a list of gear and apparel that is essential for indoor rowers. 



Ahh, unis..They can be one of the best garments to train in. JL's unisuits are made of drywick, a mid-weight strong yet supple fabric. They are constructed of the highest quality microfiber and boast famous durability. JL's original "V-Front" waistline visually elongates the torso allowing for a proper and flattering fit. Unis can either be worn on their own, or pulled down to the waist. Both options make for a comfortable row, whether you are erging or in the boat. There are a variety of styles and colors to choose from. To browse through all options, visit the All Unisuits Collection on JL Athletics.
