Indoor Rowing at Concord Recreation

Concord Recreation and CRI

Tom Bohrer and CB Sands-Bohrer coach rowing classes through the Concord Recreation Department and CB coaches during the off-season at CRI

Participants

All classes are open to all levels of experience.  All of our classes have men and women, from athletes in their 30's to those in their 60's.  We have competitive top tier masters rowers as well as beginners, bikers, runners, tennis players, zen rowers and more.  We provide individual targets for aerobic and anaerobic improvement, but ultimately everyone trains at their own pace.

Focus of the rowing sessions - Fall, Winter and Spring sessions - Concord Rec
60 minute Classes run from September through June
Tues/Fri 6 a.m.

The focus of the rowing courses is to develop aerobic capacity and endurance and greater strength. Rowing is sometimes combined with core strength and body weight exercises to build additional strength, explosiveness and overall fitness.  We monitor individual results and track progress, giving individual targets for each workout.  Many of our athletes race in CRASH-b Sprints.  Each year we have many participants, with several in the top 5 in their event.  Coaches row with the class.

Focus of the Rowing and Conditioning sessions - Nov to March - CRI
Please contact us for availability - Times vary each year

The focus of the rowing and conditioning courses are similar to the rowing sessions, but with even more emphasis on overall strength, agility, and core conditioning.  These sessions combine rowing with challenging circuit style weight training.  A priority is placed on having our athletes develop good technique to safely maximize training effect.  Many of our athletes join the class with little or no experience with weight training.

Participants who join the class mid-session will be charged a pro-rated fee
