New York City
Intermediate Adult Program
New York Rowing is thrilled to announce our fall rowing program for adult intermediate athletes. We provide athletes the opportunity to learn and improve upon basic rowing skills through six weeks of technique-focused training. This program is designed for athletes with an introductory level of experience in the sport. This program will build on the basics of the sport taught in our “Learn To Row” and “Adult Novice” classes. This session will center on developing the more detailed aspects of rowing technique and training will consist almost entirely of rowing in shells on the Harlem River. Workouts will also begin to focus on increasing physical fitness.
This session does require an introductory level of experience and is a great opportunity for those who wish to continue their progress in the sport through coached sessions. This course can be used as a step towards joining our competitive masters group or as an activity for those who are interested in simply finding a new recreational outlet.
What to Bring: Sunscreen, a refillable water bottle, a change of clothing, sneakers, socks, and flip flops are all necessary items to bring.
