If we started an additional 5pm Level 1 class, would you come?

There is NO TEASER CLASS tomorrow due to a couple of our coaches being away for the weekend

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the tragic events of 9/11/01.  Thank you to all the brave service men and women working to keep our country and communities safe every single day.

1 on 1 Rowing at South Brooklyn
CFSBK is now proud to offer private training on the Erg with our in-house Rowing Coach, Nick Peterson. 


I can provide coaching to a full range of athletes - from someone who has never pulled a stroke, to a former collegiate rower. For all athletes, I will provide sound coaching of your rowing form. My goal is to help you row efficiently, with a relaxed, powerful stroke that you can sustain in any workout or competition scenario. I can also provide you with a workout schedule tailored to your needs, goals, technical skill, and fitness level. For the beginner, I'll provide a complete breakdown of the rowing stroke and coach you through achieving good form. I'll explain how to use the rowing machine, or erg, to track your performance and measure your progress. For the more advanced athlete, I'll focus on fine-tuning your stroke and developing more challenging workouts.

I rowed competitively for 13 years, starting in 9th grade at TC Williams High School (of "Remember the Titans" fame!) and culminating in the 2000 Olympic Games, where I raced in the men's quadruple sculls (7th place). I also competed at the 1998 and 1999 World Championships (men's quadruple sculls and men's double sculls, respectively), and won at the Royal Henley Regatta in the same events. I rowed at Harvard College, where I graduated in 1995.
