1. A paddling action simulating exerciser, comprising:
a paddle pole including a first end and a second end that is configured to simulate paddling action of at least one end region of a paddle;
a cord delimited between a first end and a second end and extending displaceably through at least part of a length of the pole and from at least one of the first end and the second end of the pole;
an anchoring assembly to which at least a portion of the cord extending beyond the pole is at least indirectly secured such that a tension is caused to tensionably extend up to and along the pole when the pole is held to simulate the paddling action by movement of the pole to-and-fro relative to the anchoring assembly; and
a resilient element secured to at least one of the first end and the second end of the cord;
wherein linear displacement of the cord along the pole is resisted by the resilient element and by frictional resistance generated between the cord and the pole.
