RowingChat this week is with the founder of the FitClub app. Expat Kiwi, Athene McGregor Macdonald started the app when she couldn’t find a decent availability management crew management software programme for her club. Today it’s the most straightforward interface for a rowing coach and club.

10:00 Crew lineups can be set. USA Users have port and starboard and UK have bowside and strokeside.
13:00 Results – athletes view gives erg scores in time and also weight-adjusted.
19:00 Weight adjusted scored come from Concept2 website algorithm. You can change weight into Lbs or KGs.
