Coach B taught me how to row from scratch, and less than a year later I won an award. He taught me form, and discipline and honestly the lessons I learned from him in crew have transferred into my life beyond.
I have had the opportunity to work with Coach Neil for the past 12 months, he's helped me with specific workout plans, video analysis and one on one private sessions.
I have seen improvement in all areas of my rowing - stroke mechanics, power application, endurance and ultimately 2k speed.
If YOU need a customized plan to reach YOUR goals Coach Neil is your coach!
Coach Neil has been a huge help in making my rowing more effective. When I first started rowing, I had terrible technique and was wasting a lot of energy. Coach Neil helped me improve my technique. He is knowledgeable coach who is easy to learn from. I would highly recommend him.
Coach B is not only a great coach, but also an incredible mentor. I rowed under Coach B my junior and senior years of high school and 10 years later he is still investing in my life. I credit my athletic scholarship and my ultra distance world records to his coaching and leadership. More importantly, he gave me my work ethic and the ability to push through barriers both mental and physical that would have stopped me before. Thanks Coach, I have no doubt that the skills and character I developed under you will continue to pay dividend far into my professional career.
Coach B is one of the best rowing coaches I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. He’s extremely knowledgeable about the sport but also how to connect to the athletes. He’s very professional with the athletes and family memebers and also extremely personable. He has a special way of explaining things to different people to help get everyone on the same page. He has a knack for motivating a whole team which is no easy feat! He never leaves a struggling kid behind; he helps everyone, even his fellow coaches. I had the pleasure of coaching with him before and I would be lucky to be able to again!
My rowing definitely improved after taking Coach Neil’s rowing clinic. He takes the time to explain the mechanics of rowing so you can row more effectively. He also provided great drills to do on your own to continue to improve technique and efficiency. I highly recommend anyone that spends any amount of time rowing seek guidance from him.
