We’re delighted to reveal that the LiveRowing app, powered by British Rowing, is on the shortlist in the Best App category at the 2017 Sports Technology Awards.

LiveRowing brings indoor rowing to life, allowing athletes to compete and compare themselves against fellow rowers around the world. No longer is jumping on the rowing machine a solo pursuit, with leaderboards, workouts and challenges bringing an extra element of competition.

British Rowing is powering LiveRowing by providing featured workouts that will help people get the most out of indoor rowing when using the app. Users can also build and share custom workouts, track their progress, as well as pitting their racing skills against the best in the world.

Helen Rowbotham, British Rowing’s director of innovation, said: “LiveRowing is helping to revolutionise indoor rowing, turning the pursuit into a sport in its own right. It’s great to be recognised by the Sports Technology Awards in this way; this nomination is a testament to the work being put in to increase awareness of indoor rowing as a great way to get fit and to bring it to the forefront of the fitness industry.”

British Rowing recently launched its Go Row Indoor initiative, aimed at getting more people into indoor rowing, whether for fun, fitness or competition. New class models have been developed for gyms and studios, while a group of Master Trainers have been appointed to help roll out the programme across the industry.
