Online Rowing Coaching Plans


Most training plans you find online lack context and are not tailored to your circumstance.

With my individualized training plans, you will improve your rowing technique and reach a higher level of performance and confidence faster.

Virtual Rowing Coach

I know that you want to learn how to maintain good health, row technically better, improve your performance, and provide opportunities for yourself in the future. In order to do that, you need a rowing coach with the knowledge and experience to provide the support you need. The problem is that time is short and you often don’t see the gains you are looking for from your efforts which makes you feel frustrated.

I believe that all athletes should have an effective rowing training plan coupled with the support they need to maximize results in the shortest period of time. I understand that the amount of information online can be overwhelming or that some programs are simply not effective, which is why I am passionate about applying my thirty-two years of competitive and coaching experience to support people who want to improve and get on track.


Here’s How My Rowing Training Plans Work:

  1. We can set up a 15-minute call/zoom meeting to discuss your needs and what your goals are. You will learn more about my programs and methodology and have the opportunity to ask any questions you want to gain clarification.
  2. I will create an individualized plan for you based on our conversation. You will have the benefit of my experience and knowledge, you will save time and get on track.
  3. Your knowledge of the sport will grow, you will improve your rowing technique, and your performance will increase. 

So, please contact me at neil@coachbergenroth.com.

And in the meantime, please check out some of my articles on training, so you can stop spinning your wheels and get on the right track with your health, rowing performance, and confidence.

What Do Others Say About My Coaching?

Click here to read testimonials from the athletes and coaches that I have worked with during my career.

  • Coach B worked with my 15 year old son for a few months this summer when his crew team was closed down for quarantine. My son just needed some structure for his workouts, and really enjoyed working with him. He saw real benefits in his erg times. Coach B was very communicative, really listened, and adapted to my son’s needs as he got to know him. He doesn’t just write workouts, but also does video calls to work on technique, which is so important (especially for these teenage boys, I imagine). I highly recommend Coach Bergenroth! Thanks Coach!

    Reached out to Coach Bergenroth via e-mail for some video coaching. Received prompt and friendly responses almost immediately. After seeing just one video I sent him, he was able to provide a wealth of knowledge and insight into improving my rowing. Will continue to work with in the future.

    A++ Highly Recommended!

    Belated shout out to Coach Neil Bergenroth!

    After more than 35 years away from competitive rowing, I wanted to pick up with Concept 2 erg training this past Winter. To keep myself motivated, I decided to row in the huge SWEAT Indoor Regatta in Dallas last February. Luckily, I found Coach B, who designed a GREAT technique and training program that allowed me to finish second in my age group.

    I was amazed at the quick progress I was able to make, in part due to some simple stroke adjustments he made via our video conference (things I never learned years ago on the Notre Dame crew team).

    Thanks Coach B---I could not have done it without you! I look forward to more progress with your help.

    I started indoor rowing over two years ago when I purchased my Concept 2. I met Coach Neil though an online search when my progress started fading, and in some respects, going in the opposite direction. This is my third month on his program and my gains in performance, technique and confidence on the ERG have been astounding. Through Coach's program, I learned that rowing is a very technical sport. To my surprise, I feel that half of my improvements are coming from my rowing form and efficiency. All the YouTube videos I've studied don't compare to Coach Neil's real time one on one hour lesson via Skype and his monthly personal rowing technique video analysis. I can't recommend enough to anyone looking for big gains in both performance and technique Coach Neil's training programs with at least one real time lesson. I personally look forward to bigger gains throughout the year as I progress.

    I’m about ten weeks into a program that Neil prepared for me and I’ve already lowered my personal best in the 2K twice! The program Neil designed is personalized for me; it’s designed to target my weaknesses while also training all energy systems in order to achieve my particular goals. I know I’ve got a richly knowledgeable, highly experienced, truly thoughtful coach in my corner. He consistently offers helpful feedback, positive encouragement, and is always available to connect. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

    Coach Bergenroth is an extremely knowledgeable and determined individual. I have had the pleasure of learning a great deal from this man, as an athlete and a rowing coach. I was recruited my senior year of highschool. During my short time under Coach B’s training, I went from a complete novice to a competitive rower. His training and mentality helped me reach my goals on the erg, the boat, and even in life. I am very thankful for his time and effort coaching me.

  • 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.

    From an athlete’s perspective — having rowed under several coaches, I’d say what’s really unique about Coach B is his versatile approach to teaching technique; he takes the time to explain different parts of the stroke in a way that’s most intuitive for a given rower. For instance, he might explain a concept like blade entry by describing it holistically — how it should feel in the hand — but also visually — by illustrating how the blade is designed to move through the water.

    His educator-approach to coaching was foundational in the development of my ‘technical sense’ for the stroke. If you’re looking to try rowing, I’d definitely recommend Coach B’s program. You’ll likely fall in love with the sport (and the people) while getting in the best shape of your life.

    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 was very fortunate to work for Coach B for three years and those were some of the best years. His enthusiasm for the sport of rowing is contagious! Spend time with him and you too will fall in love with rowing. His encouragement and expertise of the sport will help you cross boundaries you didn't think were possible....
