    Can you recommend any books on coxing?

    1. Rebecca Caroe

      Scott – yes we can:
      Here is our section on all things coxing including books. https://www.rowperfect.co.uk/shop/coxing-13/#.T71FtdyO27c
      If you are a cox try the “Down and Dirty Guide to Coxing” which also has a drill card and an audio guide additional.
      If you are a coach try “Coaching the Coxswain”
      If you are a rowing club get “Good Cox Guide” and share it with all the club coaches for future reference.

      Good luck. Rebecca

    I have been working on getting healthy and fit- inspired by a book I recently read titled, “Get Well & Stay Well” by Steve Amoils, M.D. & Sandi Amoils, M.D.. I am now looking a new workout programs and hadn’t considered rowing until reading this post- I’ll bet a person can get fantastic results by rowing! Thank you for introducing me to rowing. Can’t wait to get started.
