Winter Training


Winter is a great time to make boats go fast! Everyone did a great job this past fall getting into shape, now it’s time to broaden and deepen that fitness base and build strength. While it’s not required that you work out this winter to come out for spring crew, it’s STRONGLY recommended that you get involved in some from of exercise. Do a CRLS winter sport, something of your own, or one of the boat club programs – but get some friends together and DO SOMETHING!
