Having educated more than 15,000 rowers since its inception 26 years ago as a nonprofit organization, Community Rowing Inc.’s cadre of experienced coaches motivates rowers inside the monumental Harry Parker Boathouse. With a salvo of winter training courses to choose from, students are first acquainted with industry-standard rowing machines during a comprehensive introductory lesson and an extended handshake with the rowing arm. After gleaning the skills necessary to properly use equipment, day passes grant visitors free reign over the locker rooms, training area with views of the Charles River, and any additional courses pupils choose to drop in on.

The seven-week training sessions offer participants a full-body calorie-burning workout once a week, any day of the week. Led by highly knowledgeable coaches, students learn both techniques and motivation across the span of the course, getting bodies leaner than the Tower of Pisa on a diet.

Customer Reviews

Great instructor. Fun to be out on the water. We went in a 12 person barge and used the long oars to get a feel for what it's like to really row. Fun way to spend an afternoon and gives a good idea into the sport for newbies.
