Home / Rowing Program / Erging


It’s back……

time to gear up again for HMC’s 2016/2017 erging program!


We’re offering three dry land erging Sessions from November to April and two different classes in these sessions:

  • Adult ErgFit
  • Youth ErgFit/CRASH-B Prep


ErgFit takes the best of our traditional winter erging and CRASH-B prep programs and combines them into one comprehensive class. This program, designed by our Director of Rowing, mixes up the traditional erg format by throwing in some core, stability and resistance training, bearing in mind individual levels and goals. All levels are welcome in our dry land erging program and the workout is as easy or as challenging as you like-that’s up to you. Call it a full heart and body workout; it’s guaranteed to keep you fit and working hard while the boats are out of the water!

Youth ErgFit/CRASH-B Prep

Youth erging is split into two levels: Advanced and Beginner. The Advanced Youth ErgFit/CRASH-B Prep is designed to prepare middle school rowers for the youth and junior races at the World Indoor Rowing Championships (otherwise known as the CRASH-Bs) which is held in late February every year in Boston. Youth ages 12 and 13 on race day can enter the 4 minute Girls and Boys race, where results are determined by the total meters rowed. Youth age 14 and up on race day can enter the Junior Categories and compete in the 2000 meter race. This indoor race is a fun and exciting introduction to the world of competitive rowing and our youth racers will be on a well designed and manageable race prep program in the lead up to the event.  Beginner youth erging is for those rowers who are new to the sport and want to learn the fundamentals in a fun and focused way.
