I dunno, when I go to the gym the teens are certainly tittering about me. Well, they start by tittering and then realize that I can dead lift them. That shuts them up pretty quick.
You know what, I always figure that if someone is laughing at me it's their problem, not mine. If I am working out and losing weight and doing good things for my body they can (not sure what the board rules are about cursing...) just go away.
I, for one, think what you are doing is great and I would love to row with you (I can guarantee I will be worse!).
Go for it!
