Community Rowing Inc.

Since its inception as a nonprofit organization in 1985, Community Rowing Inc. has guided more than 15,000 students in invigorating rowing sessions held on the Charles River. Their experienced staff of Olympians and coaches helps students to become familiar with industry-standard boats and rowing machines through comprehensive introductory lessons and extended handshakes with the rowing arms. After gleaning the skills necessary to properly use equipment, students gain access to locker rooms, training areas, and any additional courses on the Charles River. The full-body, calorie-burning workouts are available throughout the week, allowing students to learn essential techniques such as sweeping, sculling, and dealing peacefully with the water road rage of aggressive gondoliers. Classes are offered on select Saturday or Sunday afternoons.

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.
