Want to know about your anatomy?
Want to know how to avoid common dragon boat related injuries?
Want to learn exercises specific to dragon boat paddling?
You’re in the right place.

Welcome to our Health & Fitness page.  Why’d we put this together?  Go ahead and google “back exercises” or “shoulder exercises” and you’ll find a lot of links.  Do the same for “paddling exercises” and you’ll get the same.  Our goal is to put this stuff under 1 roof.  Whether you’re serious about paddling or just getting started, learning about your body and how to take care of it is essential to your continued health and enjoyment of the sport.  If there’s something you were curious about, drop us a message and let us know what you’d like to know about!
