  • Operation and utilization of the kayak exercise simulator 10 is discussed with reference to FIG. 2. In FIG. 2, a user 22 is shown seated upon the platform 16 of the kayak exercise simulator 10. Each of the user's legs 23 extend upon opposite sides of the pivot rod 18, and feet 24 of the user 22 are placed upon the foot rest 14 located at the base bottom 12B. A hand 26 of the user 22 grasps the rowing arm 20 on each side of the pivot rod 18, between the center 20C of the rowing arm 20 and each end, as seen in FIG. 2. Accordingly, simulated kayak rowing motions can be achieved, wherein the user 22 moves the ends of the rowing arm 20 in side-to-side circular movements. A back support member 38 may optionally extend vertically upwards from the platform 16 to maintain the user's 22 position upon the platform 16.

    Truth be told, we wish more yakers would use their kayaks chiefly for fitness. But with all the fish biting and the great coves, fjords, rivers, and whitewater to explore, there’s plenty of fun to be had with kayaking without thinking about fitness.

  • FIG. 1 illustrates a kayak exercise simulator 10. The kayak exercise simulator 10 comprises a base member 12 having a base bottom 12B and a base top 12T. A foot rest 14 is affixed proximal to the base bottom 12B. A platform 16 for sitting upon is affixed to the base top 12, said platform 16 extending essentially parallel to the horizon. A pivot rod 18 having an upper pivot rod end 18U and opposite lower pivot rod end 18L extends upward from the platform 16 and is affixed to said platform 16 at the lower pivot rod end 18L. A rowing arm 20 having opposite ends and a center 20C located therebetween is affixed pivotally at said center 20C to the upper pivot rod end 18U. The pivotal connection of the center 20C of the rowing arm 20 to the upper end 18U of the pivot rod 18 may be achieved by manners well known to those skilled in the art, and results in said rowing arm 18 being movable to a multitude of vertical and horizontal positions, as seen clearly in FIG. 2.
