What can I learn?
Rowing technique for scull and sweep, both lightweight and heavyweight – first and foremost, we have a slew of expert coaches available to dive into your athletic rowing technique and perfect your form. If you’re a lightweight sculler you may want to see John Faulkner. If you want to focus on technique that makes the boat go faster, Peter Mallory could be your next coach.
Coxing technique and skills – coxswains have a tough job as it is, but this isn’t made any easier by the lack of coxswain coaching available in general. Expert coxswain coach Chelsea Dommert has added her expertise to our Hire A Coach programme to bring coxswains better coaching.
Coaching for coaches – are you a coach looking to improve on how you hone and perfect your athletes? Duncan Holland, the coach of coaches, is available here to help guide you to a better coaching career, helping improve your athletes as a result.
Balanced and effective nutrition for rowers – if you’re finding yourself too tired for training or not building up power and muscle sufficiently, it might be your diet getting in the way. Sports nutritionist coach Joy Skipper is available to support you with a new and effective diet that complements your athletic needs.
Rowing physiology – different training styles work for different athletes to achieve similar results. What you need is a physiologist that will guide you toward better exercises and training methods to improve the rowing skills you most need help with. When looking for the right training programme it would pay to talk to sports physiologist Elias Lehtonen.
