Get fit and row – FAQ

We’ve had a lot of interest in our new ‘Get fit at row’ course.  We’ve compiled some frequently asked questions for those of you looking for a bit more information.

1. When does the course start?

The next course starts on Sunday 11th September.

2. I’m on holiday or can’t make all the sessions. Is that OK?

You’ll obviously get more out of the course the more sessions you attend, however if you can’t attend a session that is OK. The course includes cross-training, which you can do in your own time, and doesn’t require you to be at the club.

3. How much does the course cost?

The course is £175.

4. When and what are the sessions?

The sessions are planned for Tuesday and Wednesday evening and Sunday morning.

Sunday sessions 10.30am: rowing machine (ergs), on the water
Tuesday sessions between 7.00 – 8.30pm:  cross training
Wednesday session between 7.00 – 8.30pm  rowing machine (ergs), indoor rowing tank

6. I’ve never rowed before. I’m not very fit. Is that OK?

The course is designed for people who have never rowed before. Whilst fitness ultimately is important, rowing is a highly skilled sport. Our course focuses on improving your fitness and learning the basic skills of rowing.

7. Where are the sessions held?

The sessions will be at the Civil Service Boat Club, see our location.

8. What is the relationship between Barnes Bridge Ladies Rowing Club and the Civil Service Sports Council (CSSC)

Barnes Bridge Ladies Rowing Club was previously the Civil Service Ladies Rowing Club. Our boat house is supported by the CSSC. You do not need to be a Civil Servant to join, however if you are a Civil Servant or work in government funded employment you may be eligible for discounted membership, see the CSSC website for more details.
