Training for Fitness Professionals

In response to market demand, British Rowing has developed a new REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals) and CIMSPA (Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity) accredited Go Row Indoor Workshop for Fitness Professionals.


What is Go Row Indoor?

Go Row Indoor is British Rowing’s new indoor rowing program, aiming to get everyone rowing whether it be for fun, fitness or competition.

Why become a Go Row Indoor instructor?

The indoor rowing machine is one of the most underutilised, but the most effective pieces of equipment available in the gym market today. It is the perfect exercise for anyone, regardless of shape, size, age or fitness level. It is a highly effective full body, cardiovascular workout, with every stroke using 85% of your muscles covering nine major muscle groups. Indoor rowing is growing quickly and there is a strong demand for quality instruction and delivery of indoor activity in a way that makes it fun, social and effective.

How do I become a Go Row Instructor?

Sign up today and join one of our CIMSPA/ REPS accredited Go Row Indoor Fitness Professional workshops.
