A Workout to Ensure Your Legs Drive Your Rowing

Social media makes it very easy for people to ask me for training tips, which I love receiving and answering. Recently, I received this message from a woman who had just started with indoor rowing: “Hello Josh, I am an avid runner and purchased the WaterRowerGx rowing machine so I could have more of an […]

The Singing Beach Combine

It’s hot out there. If you’re like me, you will be heading for the beach to cool off. Unfortunately for my wife, I am not really into sitting still by water’s edge flipping through a magazine. I have to move! The beach is the perfect place to get in a workout – and no I […]

Swimming Tips and a New Workout Just in Time for Summer

The days are sunnier, the boss a little more flexible (hopefully) and the waters are warm (in that cold, New England kind-of-warm-way). It’s the perfect time to bust out the goggles and swim cap and immerse your body in your favorite pool or saltwater haven. Swimming is a fantastic cross trainer for all athletes. It […]

The Days Are Longer Now

Days are longer now, but kids’ sports practices, sunset drinks with colleagues, conference calls with California compete with our workout schedule and can be lethal to our fitness program; we’re easily “forced into” a day off and then even another.  When we do have a small window for a workout, we often fall prey to, […]

Ride into Spring

If you can’t get on the gym as much as you’d like to enjoy spring foliage bloom, then it’s a wonderful time to grab the road bike and hit the pavement. As you may have read in my blog ”Step Onto the Bike With Me,” cycling is a superb cross-trainer for your general fitness and […]

Soak Up These Tips to Jump into SUP

If you told me that you could combine my love of rowing, surfing and nature all into one package, I would hug you. Well that’s exactly what happened to the lucky dude who introduced me to Stand Up Paddling (or SUP). When I planted my feet on the stand up board for the first time, […]

Right now, your strict workout schedule of January may be slacking. You may be considering moving your first race to later in the year. Maybe you are still traveling for family or career, interrupting your workout schedule. You may already be bored with your New Year’s Resolution. Wherever you are, let me make take the stress […]

A Workout For When You Feel Defeated

It wasn’t for lack of effort, but for some reason things weren’t lining up for me today to get in a solid workout. One blunder after another, the day slipped away from me. So I created a workout for when you feel defeated. My computer crashed after knocking my morning ritual Yerba Mate tea all over its […]

No Time for an Outdoor Adventure? Try the Shockwave Rowing Workout

Dinner reservations were at 6:30pm; my iPhone snickered 5:34pm, knowing I still had a couple emails to fire off. Didn’t help that it was pitch black outside, 35 chilly degrees, and I still needed sweat to out the day. Needless to say, I had no time for an outdoor adventure. It’s easy to “chump out” […]

Step into the Pain Cave! One of my favorite rowing workouts.

Every now and then I get a little stale, a little bored, a little frustrated with my training. This past winter, although I had a new workout routine – battling New England snowdrifts with my plastic shovel – I was in that very same place. So like any normal person (not really), I signed up […]
