There Are a Few Spaces Left in Olympic Rower Coach Nick’s Rowing Clinic on May 31st, at 2:15pm
Do you want to improve your effectiveness on the erg? Do you dread rowing workouts? Or maybe you love them and want to row more on the side? (If you answered that last question with a hearty “yes,” you are a crazy person. Just so you know.) This one-hour clinic will include the following:
- Review of the machine: foot height, drag factor, how to set up workouts, how to review scores after workouts, etc.
- In-depth breakdown of the rowing stroke (recovery, catch, drive)
- Drills to improve common technique errors
Nick started rowing in junior high school. He competed at two World Rowing Championships (1998, 1999) and the Olympic Games (2000), as well as various other international meets.
There’s a 20 person cap on the number of participants, so sign up now!
“I attended Coach Nick’s rowing clinic two years ago and it is still paying dividends on the erg. I know how to use stroke rate and drag factor to my advantage. Best of all, I am able to get more power and lower splits with less effort.”
You Can Also Join Coach Nick For a Half-Marathon Row at CFSBK on June 14 at 2:15pm!
You know you’ve always wondered, “Gee, what would it be like to row 21,097m?” Well, your chance to get your answer is coming up: SBK will host a 1/2 Marathon Row on June 14th at 2:15. And fear not: we’ll show movies during the event. Really, what better way to spend your Sunday afternoon? You can row the full distance or split it up however you want with one other partner.
Coach Nick will send out a DIY program to everyone who signs up and will analyze video of participants’ rowing form. The training will consist of at least two long erg sessions a week to get your butts—and calluses—in shape! Expect to devote 1–2+ hours twice a week to this. Sound fun, or what?! (What?)
Sign up now! The cap is 25 – 15 slots for people rowing solo, and 10 slots for people who are partnering. This may change depending on demand. If you don’t want to row the 1/2 marathon solo, but also don’t have a partner, we’ll find one for you.
