ANYONE CAN ROW!
Your CrossFit Rowing Certified Coaches at Green Mountain CrossFit are trained to help you improve your rowing mechanics and power on the Concept2 Rowing Machine. Your coach will find places in your movement where you can gain strength, connection, and coordination. Through drills, skill work and practice, you will become more successful with producing power on this machine. You might even find an increase in overall core strength, stamina and endurance as a product of your GMCF Rowing training.
Whether your interest lies in increasing your fitness, gaining some strength and proficiency on another well loved CrossFit movement, or you just need a fun place to go when it gets cold outside and your body still needs to move, this is the place to be! But rest assured, although you can expect to spend some time both on and off the erg during class you will be moving, utilizing other light weight or body weight movements.

The Green Mountain CrossFit Rowing Program is led by Coach Cady Hart-Petterssen. Cady's Rowing programming has been born from a seemingly perfect mash up of her history in training for the sport of rowing and the basis of the CrossFit methodology. While the workouts are constantly varied, she has a thoughtful structure that uses rowing to challenge the body to make improvements in our valuable skills of fitness: power, strength, stamina, endurance, flexibility, coordination and speed. The goal behind each workout is to provide an avenue to test your skill, make measurable progress and excel in ways that will potentially translate to your everyday life. Cady is a Coach for the CrossFit Rowing Seminar Staff and teaches certification courses all over the world for CrossFit HQ. She is always available if you have specific questions about your own technique or if you are CrossFit coach that has an athlete who wants to improve their power, she does do online coaching as well. You can email her at email@example.com
Please enjoy the thoughts of some of our GMCF Rowing Athletes...
"Cady Hart-Petterssen is undoubtedly the most motivating trainer with whom I have ever worked. Whenever I take her class, she melds her first-hand knowledge of rowing crew with body awareness from yoga and CrossFit to create a one-of-a-kind workout experience. Over time, her attention to my form, posture, and technique has helped me focus on finding more power, speed, and efficiency on the rower. Compassionate and always positive, Cady knows just how and when to push me toward achieving the next PR, without sending me over the edge. With her support, I have decreased my 500 meter time by 20 seconds!"
"I have always thought that the best athletes, innovators and creative workers must have one thing in common. That one thing is great teachers and mentors. Cady is one of these teachers, discovering and molding the best that is within. To have access to such a talented, skilled and passionate instructor is what makes me one of the luckiest Master athletes in Vermont and beyond. Cady has not only transformed my technique in rowing and other skills related to CrossFit, she has instilled a true sense of belief in accomplishing greatness in my middle age. I will never forget all the times she has stood by my side, coaching and supporting my efforts and pulling out of me strength I never knew existed. She is truly a champion in so many ways, but her one greatest gift to this sport is her ability to teach and create new capacity and strength in the individual spirit of the competitor."
"Before walking into the Confluence nearly two years ago, I had never sat on an indoor rower before… and it was obvious. I have run for years and was looking for some variety while working my cardiovascular system in a similar fashion. Not only is that exactly what happened, but I also discovered I could strengthen muscles I never knew I had. I am indebted to Cady Hart for her incomparable rowing experience, instruction and knowledge that has not only helped improve my form, but also my overall performance on and off the rower. I have set more personal running records this year than ever before (without a single injury) and have placed first in both rowing competition workouts I have participated in. I am continually grateful to have the opportunity to be challenged by this incredible coach every time I take a seat in class!"
"At first, I signed up for Cady’s rowing class because I thought it would be a fun and easy way to work out. I was partially right. Sometimes those rowing classes are the most challenging physical activities I’ve ever done in my life. That’s ok, though, because I’ve learned that I can push my body and my mind far beyond my perceived limits…and that’s very exciting to me! Cady’s personality, patience and personal expertise inform her coaching style and helped me improve my strength, stamina, confidence and self-awareness. I’ve been able to translate these things to improve my performance in other sports, including CrossFit, running, and competitive paddling. I give Cady a lot of credit for helping me become a smarter athlete and a stronger athlete."
"Green Mountain Crossfit Rowing rowing kicks ass … and it kicks your ass. I’ve been taking crossfit rowing classes with Cady Hart for about two years. Cady is an amazing coach and an inspiration. Crossfit rowing works everything! My deadlift form got better, I got stronger at pullups, pushups and toes to bar; in fact, I shocked myself when I linked together a bunch of toes to bar and I hadn’t been to a regular crossfit class in months. I also climbed the rope to 15 feet . . . a bunch of times . . . I've NEVER been able to climb a rope. As a runner, I have become more focused, motivated and able to push myself. Endurance, strength, great coaches, supportive atmosphere, new friends, fun. Green Mountain Crossfit Rowing rocks! Thank you Cady and Nick."
