What: A few weeks ago, one of our awesome members, Phil, travelled to Salt Lake City for the weekend to earn his CrossFit Rowing Certification. When Phil first told me he was going to do this, my immediate reaction was, “that’s great, will you teach a rowing seminar for all our members when you return?” Lucky for all of you, HE SAID YES!

Rowing 2Below is Phil’s write-up on what he plans to cover next Saturday, 2/21, during this 1-hour rowing seminar.

“The rower is the ultimate measure of power output. Do you think it is a coincidence that the rower is the only machine in most CrossFit boxes?

I will be hosting a 1 hour seminar at Cróga on Saturday, February 21, 2015, at 10:00 am. The seminar will highlight ways we can be more efficient, maximize our power and use the erg (rower) to build stamina and endurance.

The goal of the seminar is to make you a better indoor rower. We will go through the mechanics by learning correct body positions and techniques on becoming efficient with the movement.

You will learn a little more about the machine and how to adjust it to give you your best results. While you row, I will be spotting and correcting inefficiencies and then finally we will talk about and maybe even try some strategies.


I hope you all enjoy this as our first specialty seminar of 2015 with many other skill sessions being planned for the months to follow.
