Former National Team Coach and Shox-Box customer, Gordon Hamilton, recommended the Shox-Box in his new book, Sculling in a Nutshell." Here's an excerpt from the book:
"I cannot recommend enough getting a Shox-Box. It serves to absorb the impact of your weight coming down on your lower back at the end of the stroke. When rowing, the water absorbs and cushions this impact. A floor does not. This device will really help preserve your back from all that stress."
Perfect ~ Comfort ~ Strengthen
