ROW LIKE A

Dark Horse

"Are you a Dark Horse? Someone who wants to make a change but needs help with the first step? Everyone in the Dark Horse community had an individual motivation, but we all took a collective first step. Rowing enhanced our lives. Make it the next step in enriching yours." - Shane Farmer

MEET SHANE FARMER

Shane is the original Dark Horse. Through this program you'll learn his story and see the similarity to yours. How all he knew about himself was "this wasn't it" and he had the courage to make change. How rowing found him, and then how he found himself. And how he's now inspired to help others unlock their potential, by first tapping into their athletic potential.

Experience Connected Coaching

Introducing a new connected coaching app that lets world class coaches guide and monitor your practice on a Concept 2 rowing machine.

More than a workout, this is a series of lessons – build strength and fitness alongside skill and technique as you are guided, monitored and corrected through these programs by your very own personal coach, asensei.

asensei talks to the performance monitors on your Concept 2 rowing machine. She reads force curves. She analyzes your performance and uses that to inform your practice. To inform the intent of your practice. Losing power at higher stroke rates? Losing length when tired? Rushing the recovery? Compensating for poor leg drive with over-use of your arms?

asensei knows. And she’ll be sure to let you know.
