Remote and on-site pro coaching for rowers.
We specialize in remote and on-site coaching for competitive rowers.
We coach high performance athletes as well as masters rowers, who started to row late.
The programs we offer range from personal training plans up to high performance build-up work.
What counts for us, is your dedication. Not where you come from.

I believe that success has nothing to do with talent
I believe that “luck” is, where preparation meets opportunity
I believe in consistency, not in short-term motivation
When I started to row at the age of 10, people around me said that I was too small, and too fat, and that I would „never ever“ make it to any world championships. But I learned to grow, to be persistent, and to set my own standards. In the end, I proved the so called „realists“ wrong.
Your goals may simply be to lose weight, to do training without getting sick or feeling pain, to be able to compete in a race, to win the national championships, or to become the fastest in the world.
Whatever your goals may be, and whatever your current situation is, there probably is a good chance that you will accomplish what want.
It has become my passion, to help people from all walks of life to achieve their goals.
It was the first World Cup of the season 2017. Robert Manson put in a performance that was more than remarkable – it was outstanding. For him, winning the race was not enought, he wanted to show what he is capable of. This mentality is precisely what it takes to…
This video is all about the Men’s pair at the World Championships 2017. The Sinkovic brothers had made their transition from the double into the pair – successfully – and the Italians are simply phaenomenal racers.
This video is about technique, specifically speaking of the unique requirements when rowing a pair, and why we love rowing: the racing.
Jeannine Gmelin wins gold in the open weight woman’s single at the world championships in Floriday 2017.
Interesting fact: Gmelin is roughly 20cm smaller than the silver medalist. I grew up in an environment where a rower had to be “tall” to be able to win. Gmelin is a perfect example that every body size needs its dedicated rowing technique.
[:en]The World Masters Prep Camp 2017 was great start to a series of dedicated Masters Crew Camps. We set the main focus on rowing technique – first in low stroke rates, then in higher stroke rates. This was the best way to prepare in short time for the upcoming races…
This is such an extensive subject, that I cannot possibly cover it all in one blog article. In the following, I share some of my experience. Selection routines almost always focus on a very small range of physical capabilities, especially when it comes to forming team boats. We know, however,…
If you are nervous before a race, or even worse, if you are afraid of a race, then you are not ready. A rowing race is one of the most demanding excercise known in sports. The reason is simple: A 6-8-minute race is everything the human body is not naturally…
I do not believe in early talent – I believe in consistency In many sports, the so called “talents” are simply accelerated developers. These are children or teenagers, who start to develop into physical adults a bit earlier than their fellow agers. Just have a look at a typical classroom…
[:en]One of the first things I teach my athletes and the people I work with, is the ability to fail. This is a slow, and gradual process, which takes time and persistence. I implement it in the training plans, I talk about it, and finally I ask them to fail.…
[:en]Spinoza said: “No matter how thin you slice it, there will always be two sides.” There will always be athletes, who waste your time, talk more than they work, and who seem to have more problems than any human can possibly collect in one lifetime. If you are a coach,…
Hi Aram, I am 56 years old and trained many rowing styles under several different coaches. But it seems to me in the US there is a generational divide when it comes to teaching the catch. The older generation teaches that the blade should be backed into the water as…
It is winter season, and most competitive athletes are facing various tests. A national coach I know personally, has installed so called “test weeks”, which are to be done roughly every 6 weeks during the winter season. These weeks consist of a full 2k on the erg, a 6k, short…
Q: How often are you talking to your athletes about the acceleration of the hands towards the body and about”strong finish by hands“? Many coaches repeat only this like a tape. They focus on a very strong finish to hear some kind of click when you flat the blades. What…
Robert asks: Hi Aram. What you think about the boat and blades setting? Do you prefer longer blades and bigger span and outboard or shorter blades and other positions too? Especially for the girls. I have some table Im using to calculate the best setting but as you know each…

Instead of training single muscles, we focus on connecting the muscle groups during weight training. This helps us to create better selected body tension in the boat.

[:en]In this video we compare the M4x of the Sidney Olympic A-Final 2000 with the World Cup Varese A-Final in the M4- of 2016. There are important similarities between sculling and sweep rowing in terms of body movement.

In this video I share my experience about rowing technique with a lot of details.

“Do some warming up” is what I hear quite often being said to athletes. If I do not know why I do it and what exactly needs to be achieved by what I do, I will not be doing efficiently what ever I am about to start.
The video is a very quick introduction to what we do before every training session, be it weight training, rowing, senso motorical training or anything else. Every excercise should be done at least 30” (seconds) per side. The joints needs about 15′ (minutes) to prepare themselves for heavy impact, what every type of serious training is.
It is staggering how many young athletes out there talk to us about their back problems. This has become more and more over the last years.
In this video we try to show why this is the case and why it is not the case in the boat and on the BIOROWER.
Today it is all about the speed of the hands at the recovery. The rowing machine in this video: www.biorower.com
