Gloucester Rowing Club, December 2013

We’ve found the RP3 really useful in working on posture, positioning and se
quencing throughout the stroke.

Watching how the machine and seat move on the rail give immediate feedback for the coach and the rower. The data on the laptop takes this even further, but initially we just use the machine without the laptop connected so rowers can focus on their technique without trying to pull big numbers.  Read the full review RP3 Demo Gloucester Rowing Club

Masters Rower from USA, June 2012

The rowperfect ensures the only way to get higher joules per stroke is by have the correct set up and posture needed when rowing on the water, rowing shorter and rating higher will not help in any way to increase the power whereas on a concept 2, its easy to use all sorts of random muscles to get the split down. I have found better engagement of the glutes and being more able to hang off the handle which I was never able to perfect on the concept 2. Whilst engaging my glutes I have developed a stronger core because in order to hold my body up during the drive i have to engage my core a lot more to get the joules than when on the concept.  Read the full review “How to drop your 2k test by 5 secs per 500m

Nick Panza, Yale University Rowing

We use the rowperfects a lot at my university and I had a few questions about them. 

My primary question revolves around being able to enter different weights and how that affects your splits, watts, power on the screen, if it does at all.   Read the full review Rowperfect weight adjustment question

Austin Roe, Captain, Burton Leander Rowing Club

I’ve only been rowing for 22 years and I think the Rowperfect is fantastic.  It’s better than the C2 sliders – we have eight of them.  Once you got on; straight away it felt better.  But once we linked it to the computer it blew me away!

We are getting people fitter than they’ve ever been. They weren’t getting the return from the river work and now we can get them on a machine to show them how to put the work down to move a boat.  Once they can see it on the computer (you can explain it until you’re blue in the face) they are grasping what we’ve been coaching for the past two years.

Lea Rowing Club, Will Riley

I will work to get another Rowperfect with bars, so we can have at least two scullers ‘feeling for the catch’ in the club.  I am sold on the technology finally something that feels like a boat on dry land which can help you break down the stroke to target and measure the improvement in your weak points. Wasn’t interesting to see the core stability and flexibility issues in the Juniors, coupled by the inflexibility of the Seniors!! Read the rest Rowperfect visits Lea Rowing Club

Thor Nilsen FISA Development Director

If you start to teach novices on the C2 the feedback is not there and so as a coach you need to control the athlete all the time.  But with Rowperfect the feedback quickly teaches them.

Concept 2 is a fitness machine, and a good one.  But if you are a serious rower and sit on C2 all the time it isn’t the best way to develop and keep your technique.  On the RP you must move and check the timing between the catch and the leg drive – if you do it wrong you move up and down the bar.  The feeling of the movement is so important.  As a rower if you want to use the ergometer for the rowing movement the Rowperfect is the one to use.
