Rowing machines are great and all, but staring straight ahead at other sweaty gym dwellers isn't quite eye-appealing. Get your total body workout in a more scenic environment with today's deal from Pan American Dragon Boat Association: Pay $39 (regularly $88) for a seat on a dragon boat in the 9th Annual Tampa Bay International Dragon Boat Races on April 28 at Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park, the Marriott Waterside, and gorgeous Garrison Channel, along with two separate practices the weeks of April 16 and April 23. All ages and experience levels are welcome in this ancient Chinese form of competition originated centuries ago in Guangdong province, but has gained incredible popularity in the U.S. with its colorfully adorned boats and the exciting cardiovascular workout it provides. Follow the pulsating beat of the drummer seated up front as you paddle your way to victory and make new friends on the water -- all while breaking your exercise routine and expanding your cultural appreciation.
