The first bit of advice is this

  1. Get professional coaching and tuition.  Find a local coach who can give you one on one sessions and individual feedback.  When starting out face to face coaching is important so you learn the basics correctly.  Later on, you can buy remote rowing coaching from our expert coaching team.
