Coaching IQ

asensei is logging every stroke you take, building a database of your practice and performance. It’s called COACHING IQ, and as you cycle through this program with Shane, COACHING IQ is what allows us to make the program more and more individualized to you, zeroing in on the areas that you need to focus on, and letting Shane take his coaching of you from a group coaching experience to personal training with asensei.

Mentored Practice

You follow Shane, and asensei will follow you. She has been trained by Shane and guided thousands of athletes like you through Connected Rowing Coaching programs. Throughout a workout, she's working with Shane to calculate your targets, lay down challenges and let Shane know how well you followed his coaching. She'll make sure that Shane is always giving you the right coaching at the right time.

This isn't just personal training. It's personalized training.
