“Getting so much out of the course – it’s fantastic!  I realized I was rowing with my footstretchers too far away. It made a big difference in being able to feel when my feet disengaged.”

“Just wanted to share my a-ha moments from today’s practice. I went back to the first day, changed my oar length and my inboard. Overall the load felt lighter with the adjustment of the oars. I felt I had more control when I did the stationary drill if I took my time. I was nervous I wasn’t going to be balanced, so I went quicker but when I just focused on tapping down same pressure and timing I did better.”

“Although I’m only through the first two sections of the course, I am getting so much out of it and I’ really glad I signed up. This is an incredible reference. I never had a regular coach and this course feels like having a coach at my side. And the best part is I can revisit the modules after I’ve practiced them to see what I missed / what I understand better. The demo videos you included are super helpful I’ve been to coaching sessions where technique is demoed, but it’s so easy to forget one specific aspect – and there’s no way to revisit it so I love that I can play the videos over again.”
