Fred Hodgdon

I'm 66, retired and I became interested in indoor rowing 4–5 years ago because it was, for me, the best form of aerobic exercise I could think of. It works my back, stomach, legs and arms—all with zero impact.

I enjoy being part of the Concept2 online community primarily because it inspires me to participate in events like the Holiday Challenge (I know I'm bragging here but I was in the top 15 last year).

The picture of me was painted by my wife, Marlene, who exercises with me every morning for an hour while watching TV.
