Rowing and hiking.

If it weren't for rowing and hiking, and dogs onboard(which make it mandatory), the type of coastal sailing we do would be quite sedentary.

Rowing for exercise can be a fun easy workout, especially good for keeping your back in shape. Rowing dinghys are popular in our area.

If you're cruising, you can get a lot of exercise just taking care of daily needs, with no car. Sailors as a group up and down the east coast look pretty fit to me.
