I established the Empty the Tanks blog in 2009 to document and communicate with team members who were participating in the World Erg Challenge. When ETT started there was only six members the numbers gradually grew every year to the team we have now.
Unlike some teams in the indoor-rowing community you do not need to be invited, pay a subscription or feel obliged to take part in the many competitions and challenges - we just want to provide a supportive and friendly place to get involved and encourage you to beat some personal best times / distances.
Indoor rowing is a great way of keeping fit and there are lots of ways to keep it more interesting by taking part in the monthly Cross Team Challenge, the C2 Challenge Series or the tri-annual team competitions. You can also subscribe to RowPro that allows you to race against other people in real time.
If you want to join the team or ask any questions you can leave a comment on the blog or e-mail Caroline at firstname.lastname@example.org.
