"This is the best exercise for anybody because your whole body is in motion... your legs and arms and shoulders," Lang told the Huffington Post. "If you do this exercise every day, your shoulders will be very powerful and straight up. You won't be bent over when you are in your 90s."
Lang's experience with rowing has been so positive he inspired his cousin, Debra Strougo Frohlich, and her husband, Eric Von Frohlich, to open Row House in New York City a few months ago. Row House is a studio dedicated to rowing-based group fitness classes. Like Lang, the couple believes rowing promotes better posture and health through a full-body, non-impact workout.
"This is the best exercise for people of any age and it can be done even by older people," Lang said.
