Improving rowing for coaches, gyms, and athletes. You work hard at rowing, make rowing work for you. At Dark Horse Rowing, we believe everyone can excel at their chosen pursuit of fitness and they deserve support, a community, and the tools to help them get there.
We do this by un-complicating rowing, building an online community of support, and make our workouts usable with other programs, simple to understand, and mobile accessible. Dark Horse Rowing is both a program and a coaching tool to improve performance for rowing. The workouts are app based, updated automatically, and allow for workout tracking. All drills are shown in video and through written points of performance. Dark Horse Rowing was made for non-rowers who use rowing in their training and want to de-mystify the movement or simply get faster.

“I hold you responsible. Today I went for our 30-minute rowing lead. I tried to keep a steady pace and felt strong through 20 minutes. I struggled a little for the next five, but pushed hard for the last five. In one month of following your 5k program I improved 220m to 8293m/ Yes! I am now in the lead by 91 meters. Thank you!”

Hey - are you new here? Are you trying to figure out how the heck to use that you or somebody you loved picked up for an early Christmas present? We thought we'd compile a few tips from The Crew for this to share with you "What I wish I knew before I started rowing." Taken directly from the community of in The Crew:
1. Wear comfortable clothing ideally made from material that wicks away sweat and has no tags or seams that may cause chaffing, especially on longer distances.
2. Wear flat shoes with little to no padding on the soles. This will allow you to have the right angle between your knees and feet at the catch and maximize your power.
3. Use your legs, not your back. The legs contain your body’s biggest muscles. Use Them!
4. Prepare for an incredible night's sleep. This is a full-body workout and you are going to get the rest you deserve afterward.
And if you're one of our seasoned Dark Horses, please sound off in the comments - tell us what you wished you knew when you first started ! Pass along that hard won wisdom.
5 steps to a disciplined and healthy lifestyle:
1) Identify areas where you can improve
2) Regulate what motivates you
3) Let go of everything that takes you off your goals
4) Create daily tasks and routines
5) Turn these steps into your habits
Start off by creating schedules of your crew workouts and look at your schedule long enough for you to believe you can maintain the schedule. Give all the motivation you need to give yourself and get on that crew machine and row yourself through all the tough times.
The real secret to creating a consistent, healthy lifestyle of active movement is to not do it for the results. It's doing it because you find the joy in the doing. Not every moment on that machine or choosing that meal over another might feel like the best moment of your life, but finding the little things to love, while you are in the thick of it, can take you so much farther than just pinning all your hopes to that "someday" goal. Share a little moment of joy your found in your journey today!

1) Commit to at least 2 sessions a week.

You've grown and pushed yourself, maybe done things you thought you couldn't do or set personal bests this month.

If your motto is, "Tomorrow, I will row harder than I did yesterday", our distance challenge workouts might just be what you need to keep that drive alive! We offer 5k 101, 500M 101, and the toughest of 'em all: Marathon-distance workouts. These extensive programs will push your boundaries and make you work like crazy.
