I broke the world record on the erg and I was recruited to Brown University – where I rowed undefeated in the men’s heavyweight eight for two years until I turned my attention to rowing the single scull in the Olympics, where I earned a gold and silver medal and broke the Olympic record.
I was able to achieve this through elite coaching and by making some tough adult decisions.
In the last 3 years I have coached 2 of the number 1 finishers at the World Indoor Rowing Championships – using the elite coaching which had been passed down to me by the world’s top coaches and which had also allowed me to break the world record on the erg.

Every year, I take on 20 high school students around the world. They supplement their rowing club’s workouts with my elite training and technical coaching, in order to surpass their competitors and earn a seat at their dream college.
They understand that if they train like the vast majority of high competitive highly school rowers – they will improve and get PRs on their 2ks, but they will not pass the field of other highly competitive rowers. With my elite coaching – they can and they have.
Time is not your friend. I urge you to explore elite coaching with me as soon as possible and at the very least you will understand your options.
That said, Spring Break 2015 is the perfect time for you to make a break through and begin improving at a faster rate.
You have the opportunity to change the course of your life if your goal is to row at a college of your choice.
