The main idea behind Roowing is to get people outside and show them that training in the fresh air is much better than being locked in a fitness centre, as is often the case today.
Roowing combines traditional rowing training and exercise with new trends in fitness (such as Yoga, mindfulness, a healthy lifestyle and much more), thus making the beauty of rowing and other sports accessible to the general public. Under the guidance of experienced and successful coaches, you have the opportunity to improve your physique, shape your body into your swimsuits, or just learn a new skills that you’ve always wanted to try, but you did not know where to start.
During our training, you’ll not just acquire new skills but will also meet new people, discover new places, learn something new about yourself and especially – you will enjoy it and have a lot of fun!
“We are building a community, not just training people!”
David is a former oarsman from the Czech Republic having rowed in the Czech eight at the world junior championships, before joining the Czech Republic National team from 2008 to 2011 where he rowed lightweight coxless pair, coxless four and eight. He also competed in the University World Championship at Szeged, Hungary in the lightweight coxless four. Since 2012 he has turned his hand to coaching and coached in France at ACBB rowing club as well as coaching juniors at his home club, Bohemians Praha in the Czech Republic. Last year, he came to Australia and started coaching at All Hallows’ School and University of Queensland Boat Club in Brisbane. David has extensive cross training experience with athletes in the gym (weights), cross- country skiing, cycling (road and mountain) and triathlons. He is also curious about connecting classic training methods with elements of yoga and mindfulness like basic breathing exercises and meditation.
Rowing also know as “Symphony in motion” is one of very few exercises that uses all of the major muscle groups in the body at the same time – upper and lower back, abdominals, arms, legs, chest and buttocks. For this reason, it is strongly recommended for daily activity to improve overall physical fitness.
Rowing can be done not only outside but also inside, especially when the weather is bad. To this end, we use the Concept 2 ergometer, on which we prepare special fitness rowing programs.

The easiest way how to improve your endurance, lose excess pounds and get back into the shape – and it is always better in group with friends.
As confirmed by Damir Martin, a silver medalist at the Olympic Games in Rio, cycling is a very important part of rowing training. It helps to improve endurance, burn calories and compared to running, is very gentle on the joints.
Stretching is an integral part of fitness routine, helps increase flexibility, range of motion and helps with injury prevention. Unfortunately, it is often neglected and omitted, so we decided to offer you a unique opportunity of a 30 minute stretching session led by our experienced coaches.
