SAN FRANCISCO, CA, November 26th, 2019 - British Rowing is delighted to announce a partnership with the Connected Coaching platform, asensei.

asensei’s patented Connected Coaching technology allows elite coaches to guide and monitor users’ training on a Concept2 rowing machine. asensei allows athletes to commit to engaging and effective coaching programs created and delivered by some of the best rowing experts in the world.
To celebrate the launch of the partnership, asensei Ambassador and double Olympic Champion, Eric Murray will be flying in from New Zealand for the upcoming Mizuno British Rowing Indoor Championships (BRIC). Murray will demonstrate the asensei platform as well as hopping on a rowing machine as part of a relay team on the day of the event with other competitors from BRIC. Murray is excited about the opportunity to attend BRIC, “Seeing a partnership come together like British Rowing and asensei makes perfect sense. I love being a part of the Connected Coaching platform and watching athletes progress in technique and form. Now to be able to come to the Mizuno British Rowing Indoor Championship as the asensei ambassador is fantastic and I jumped at the chance to attend the iconic event.”
Kenny Baillie, Director of Partnerships & Communications at British Rowing said, “We have a lot of technical expertise in the organisation which has helped the GB Rowing Team become one of the most successful teams in the Olympics and Paralympics. We are delighted we can now leverage asensei ’s Connected Coaching technology to help us spread this technical expertise to a much wider audience.”
Ross Arnott, Chief Product Officer at asensei commented, “Our indoor rowing goal at asensei is to introduce more people to this incredible sport, to give everyone access to world-class coaching, and to engage them with inspirational and educational programs that they can follow on the Concept 2 rowing machine. Over the last year, we have worked closely with Eric Murray, connecting him with thousands of indoor rowers who have chosen to follow him along his journey. We are tremendously excited to bring Eric to BRIC to meet with some of these followers in person, and introduce people to Connected Rowing Coaching with asensei. We’re fired up to train asensei with the knowledge and expertise of British Rowing, so that our collective members can train under the watchful eye of asensei alongside British Rowing athletes as they build towards the Olympics and Paralympics.”
