..After a cold and windy January we decided to start this year’s regatta season with a training camp in Tuscany. Admittedly we were slightly nervous if we’d be able to meet our Olympic coach’s expectations and standards. About 85 km and 1000 “relax”-s and “don’t worry”-s (about the wind, the boat, the balance, the bridges…) later, we were definitely holding on to our oars a little lighter, pushing with our legs first a little harder, and moving our hands away a little quicker (still not quite at Olympic speed).

I’m so excited that Matteo has decided to put his talents to use and launch Rowing in Tuscany. Matteo has a fabulous coaching style that can benefit anyone looking to improve and understand their rowing technique better. He is kind and extremely knowledgeable. And what’s better than improving your rowing while in Tuscany where you can experience the food and fabulous Italian culture. This is a great option for people who want to incorporate their passion for rowing with a desire to travel and see Italy!

I am a former track athlete that converted to sculling 3 years ago, with some success in the sport of rowing I was in need of some true fine tuning to gain more speed and technical efficiency. Since training under coach Matteo Stefanini my technique has improved tremendously, my overall fitness has increased 10 fold with is athlete specific workouts, If you are looking to learn, or develop more in rowing or sculling I highly recommend Coach Matteo Stefanini.
