Rowing and its associated training can be a strenuous activity. You should therefore be in good health and have no medical or physical condition precluding heavy exercise.

If you have any doubt you should consult your doctor.

Some conditions such as asthma and diabetes, for example, do not prevent individuals participating in the sport, but you do have a duty to declare any condition that might put yourself or others at risk. Likewise you have a duty to declare any change in personal health whilst a member of the Club that may put yourself or others at risk.
