The Dark Horse Crew: Our Monthly Program

What Will I Get?

The worlds simplest program using and maximizing the indoor rowing machine that takes just 8-weeks and only 2 workouts/week.

You’ll get faster at any distance you choose, breathe easier, fit our program into any program you use and your confidence will go through the roof.

Now you have a coach with you at all times. No more need to search for videos, wonder if the cues you’re getting are right, or HOW you’re supposed to get faster.

This is the most effective program available for the rowing machine so you can be successful and confident knowing you have the very best resources behind you.


What is The Crew?

The Dark Horse Crew represents those who want extra conditioning work and who no longer want to hate their time on the rowing machine on a consistent basis. The crew runs monthly with 2 workouts per week.

This is our core offering which runs consistently and you can join or quit whenever you want. It’s different from the programs in that you’ll come across a broad range of distances, times, and variables to help you understand the rowing machine and you’ll be using rowing as extra conditioning and recovery workouts.

This is NOT about being a rower, this IS about learning and using good movement consistently so you can become a better athlete and human.

Dark Horse will make you sweat, teach you new things, and change your perceptions about the rowing machine. If for some reason, you don’t love your experience or feel that we’ve accomplished our goal you can cancel within the first 3 weeks and we’ll refund your purchase.

We want to work with people who are committed to themselves and who realize the effects of our work together, therefore participation is critical for your success.
