As you may have noticed, our morning classes got a bit later recently. This is a temporary change while we work on some sound-proofing measures in the studio. We should have our 6:30 am classes back on the schedule in a couple of weeks.
On Saturday July 8th at 11 am, we will be hosting a row in support of Project Sunshine. Project Sunshine is a nonprofit organization that provides free educational, recreational, and social programs to children and families living with medical challenges. (http://www.projectsunshine.org/)
Special tickets will be sold for this class for a minimum donation of $30. All proceeds will go directly to Project Sunshine and charitable tax receipts will be issued for all donations. Stay tuned for more information on this soon!
Special Event - Learn to Row (on the water!)
We will be hosting a learn to row with Argonaut Rowing Club in July. The program will span two weekends. The dates will either be the 15th/16th and 23rd, or the 23rd/24th and 29th depending on interest levels. Dates will be confirmed in the next few days. The rows will start at 1pm. Each session on the water will be two hours. The cost for the program is $175 and includes a BBQ. Space is limited, so if you are interested let Kristin know your preferred dates ASAP.
Technique Tip: "Use your hamstrings" on the recovery - what do we mean?
As you've probably heard our instructors say, the recovery is the most important and most challenging part of the stroke. Taking your time on the recovery allows the muscles to relax and release tension, ensuring that you can sustain more effort and power during the drive portion of the stroke. The hamstrings are the key to finding time on the recovery. Don't let your legs bounce down and back up at the finish of the stroke. Instead, press the legs down to the finish and engage the hamstrings to control (and often slow) the approach to the catch.
