Hydrow beginner training camp

Pete Donohoe

Hydrow Beginner Training Camp will help you to feel healthier, stronger, and motivated to continue building healthy habits. This camp is a great fit for anyone interested in jump-starting their workout routine with an approachable and easy-to-follow program.   

Beginner Training Camp is a four-week program consisting of 12 rows (three per week). Rowing just three times a week builds the foundation of a workout routine. It allows you to see the incredible benefits of this full-body exercise. During the program, the rows gradually increase in duration from 10 minutes to 20 minutes so you can feel comfortable and confident rowing for longer periods of time.

Beginner Training Camp is also an excellent introduction to the Hydrow experience. As you progress, you’ll get to try different workout types—Breath, Sweat, and Drive. You'll learn a variety of workout styles from Endurance and Technique to HIIT. Our Athletes have taken extra care to make these rows approachable. You’ll be supported as you have fun exploring all kinds of workout structures. 

Finally, at the end of the program, you’ll wrap up with our Baseline Assessment. This is a five-minute row at maximum effort. The purpose of this row is to measure your current fitness level, (“your baseline”), so that you can use that information to improve your future workouts. Based on your average split from the Baseline Assessment, we’ll send an email with your split ranges that you can target in future rows. Having these split ranges in mind will help you pace and challenge yourself so you can leave each row feeling your best. 

While Beginner Training Camp is the perfect next step if you’ve already completed our Learn to Row and Fitness Builder Program, it’s also a great option for any Hydrow member interested in starting or getting back into a routine. Not only that, but after completing all 12 rows, you’ll celebrate your achievement with a brand-new Beginner Training Camp badge!

Our team is dedicated to providing you with the best workout experience possible. We regularly refresh and inform the content in Beginner Training Camp. If you’ve completed an earlier version of Beginner Training Camp, we encourage you to try the new and improved program to earn your badge!
