Why Row Hard?

After years of training and writing our own rowing programs, we realized there weren’t any online resources that were easily customizable. Plans prescribed a fixed number of days/sessions to do per week, or static target splits to hit for workouts (eg “Do 10 intervals of 500m and aim for 1:45 splits”), making it difficult for an athlete to adjust the program for their needs (should you extend the distance or adjust the effort level? If you needed to make a program 3 days instead of 4, which workouts should you drop?). The solution was to pay lots of money for a personal trainer.

Row Hard addresses this need by providing a dynamic program based on an individual’s current fitness level and training availability. While very difficult to create a one-size-fits-all rowing plan, automated program creation increases accessibility (it’s cheaper) and is flexible enough to address a variety of needs. Row Hard’s proprietary algorithm also personalizes training targets, which can be difficult for athletes to calculate as their training progresses while avoiding burnout.
