Hello and welcome to British Rowing Plus,
British Rowing Plus is our new content hub with exclusive content for British Rowing members.
British Rowing Plus will bring you the best rowing stories, workouts and technical advice, whatever type of rower you are. Every week we’ll be uploading more content to the platform with regular columns from some of the top rowing writers out there Martin Cross, Patricia Carswell, Martin Gough and Daniel Spring. We’ll also be hearing regularly from Matt Rossiter and Beccy Muzerie, taking us behind the scenes in the GB Rowing Team camp.
If improving your technique is more up your street, we’ll have some of the experts behind the success of the GB Rowing Team providing advice on how you can apply this to your own rowing. Robin Williams coached Helen Glover and Heather Stanning to two Olympic gold medals and he’ll be sharing some of his knowledge on a regular basis with us. In the first articles we’ve published today, you can also hear from Gareth Turner and more of the sports science team here at British Rowing.
Indoor rowing is one of the fastest growing areas of the sport and has been a fantastic way to stay fit and healthy during the recent lockdown. Whether you’re a complete beginner or looking to find that extra bit of speed, we’ve got the holistic training plans you need – with easy to follow plans, references and our well-loved Go Row Indoor workout videos.
Once you’ve finished all that training, you’ll need to eat and we’ve got that covered too. We’ll have nutritional advice from the GB Rowing Team nutritionists, Wendy Martinson and Hatty Bates and if you want some nice healthy recipe ideas, Marcin’s your man – he’s the chef at our National Training Centre in Caversham (I’d highly recommend this poached eggs, greens and potato hash recipe!).
If all that talk of food is making you hungry for more then please dive in and explore the site. British Rowing members, you’ll be able to use your normal username and password. If you’re not a member already – no problem. Just click here to purchase a membership from less than £3 a month and you’ll receive access to this wealth of content right away.
Thank you to all our fantastic contributors, we’re looking forward to working with you on the platform. Thank you also to the team at British Rowing and our partners who have helped create British Rowing Plus.
This platform is for you – the rowing community. This is the first version and, as well as the new content that will be added every week, we’ll also be developing the system as we learn more about what you want from it. If you have any feedback, please do email it through to us – we’d love to hear what you think of the platform and what content you’d like to see on it.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy reading and exploring the platform and look forward to hearing your feedback.
