How to Coach using Rowperfect
Want your crews to go faster? Be more skillful?
Rowperfect UK has created a mini training course just for you. If you are a coach or an athlete and you want to make your boat go faster, this is the perfect introduction to some training skills that will revolutionise your rowing or sculling training.
Many rowing coaches tell us that there’s nobody out there coaching the coaches. That it’s up to them to find the new information that they can integrate into their training programme to improve the skills and boat moving abilities of their athletes. It can be a lonely job – especially if you are leading a programme and have a team depending on your wisdom and leadership.
Well we wrote the “How to Coach using RP3 Dynamic” short course just for you.
Learning new skills is hard and acquiring a dynamic rowing machine like a RP3 may be something you are considering for your club, school or university boat club. Allow us to help you make that decision by giving you more information about HOW you’ll be able to use it when it arrives and helping you find ways to sensibly introduce a new coaching and training tool to your colleagues and the athlete crews.
Building your knowledge
The easiest way to learn is to ‘apprentice’ yourself to someone who already knows the craft or trade. Watch, listen and gain confidence that you can easily master coaching rowing and sculling using the RP3 dynamic rowing machine.
This course is designed to teach you the core skills so you have confidence using RP3 with your athletes and showing colleagues how to use it themselves. You will know exactly what to do and the numbers to look for.
Your existing coaching skills will be enhanced. A dynamic rowing machine is not a sinecure. You will need your existing coaching skills. This won’t be doing you out of a job or replacing your expertise – RP3 is a tool that enables a coach to get the most out of his athletes – to move them up to perform at closer to their potential.
You can’t get this information anywhere else – it isn’t an e book we sell, we don’t do videos about it, none of the blog posts give away all this experience. If you want to learn to coach using Rowperfect – this is the perfect place to start.
Join Top Coaches and Crews who use Rowperfect UK’s RP3
Some of the most-medalled coaches and fastest crews in the world use Rowperfect (original design and the new RP3)- so you won’t be alone when you make the switch. Tim McLaren – USA Head Coach; Steve Trapmore – CUBC Great Britain; Dick Tonks – Head Coach, New Zealand all have athletes in their programmes who use Rowperfects.
You don’t even have to set yourself up as a solitary innovator because the Rowperfect Rowing Simulator has been around since 1988 and was credited for helping Frans Göbel, NL win his World Championship lightweight single sculls title that year. More, a man who got beaten by him saw that Göbel trained on a Rowperfect and got one for himself – he won the title for a record breaking 3 consecutive years. That man was Peter Haining, MBE of Great Britain.
Since that time Olympic and World Medals, Oxford and Cambridge Boat Races and a multitude of other events have been won by athletes and coaches using the Rowperfect and RP3.
