Get Down with our Upcoming 5-week Rowing Workshop

Amber Champ2x HOCR 2011

Love it or hate it, rowing is deeply engrained in CrossFit. If you want to step your game up, this is your opportunity. We are lucky enough to be working with rowing coach (and TwinTowner!) Amber Miller to bring you a 5 week, rowing-specific series of classes.

Amber is a Level II certified Rowing Coach and has seen much success in coaching athletes of a variety of skill levels. She coached the Junior Team at Minneapolis Rowing Club for four years, the adult teams for two, as well as teams at St. Thomas University and the Lincoln Park Boat Club in Chicago.  She also took her Junior and collegiate teams to national and international races, where many medals were won and even a few scholarships earned!

As an individual, she has been rowing for 17 years, and has won medals at Nationals, Masters Nationals and at The Head of the Charles in Boston (the biggest regatta in the world). Last year she even won bronze in her age group in her single at Masters Nationals! Want to improve your rowing/erging technique and avoid injury? How about improving your strength and power on the rowing machine? This series is designed to do just that, and who better to learn from? The classes will focus on improving your mechanics and posture, bettering your numbers, and upping your rowing confidence.

The sessions will incorporate interval training as well as distance work all while improving form, technique and mental stamina. You will drop your 2k score with this class. The 90-minute format will allow time for warm-up and post-workout stretching as well as time for questions. This class will fulfill your workout for the day and teach you the best posture and techniques to become the powerhouse rower you’ve always wanted to be!

Sessions will be held on Sunday mornings from 8:30 – 10:00 beginning on April 19th. There are 11 spots available, so if you know you would like to attend, be sure to sign up early! Sign up on Zen Planner and show up with your sneakers, a water bottle and some grit.
