Class Description

Pittsford Indoor Rowing Center (the “PIRC”)

We focus on fitness and technique!
Learn to row or perfect your stroke in the tanks with Ethan Curren. We don’t focus on the symptoms of inefficient technique (i.e. shooting the slide, missing water, skying your blade, etc.). Instead, we focus on teaching you the cause of flawed technique, so you will be better able to make changes, self-diagnose any issues and improve your boat moving ability. Ethan’s “PIRC” sessions are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings.
