“I am going my way, and I am going it consistently“
Of the many things I have learned from Aram, the most important lesson was never to lose my goal and to constantly walk towards it. There might be set-backs, but you never stop. No matter how slow your progress might be.
My name is Jakob Zwölfer, I am 20 years old and I am high performance lightweight rowing athlete. Having started late, at the age of 16, Aram has been my coach ever since. Now, just about 4 years later, I have produced top results at national and international races. He made it possible for me to compete at the U23 World Championships, only 3,5 years after I had first started rowing on a Biorower.
On top of many hours of technique training, and his knowledge about physical training, Aram made me discover my mental potential to an extent, of which I had never dreamed it even exists.
Another crucial insight I got from him is the fact that I must go my own way if I want to be successful. “If we keep on doing things the way we have always done them, we will get what we’ve always had”. So, Aram helped me discover my own way, based on my personality and based on my individual physical potential.
I am looking forward to many more years!
