Increased muscle strength, particularly in the back, arms, shoulders and chest, from moving the paddle
Increased torso and leg strength, as the strength to power a canoe or kayak comes mainly from rotating the torso and applying pressure with your legs
Reduced risk of wear-and-tear on joints and tissues, since paddling is a low impact activity.
