This article is meant to answer some common questions we get about our 6-week "Training Camp" Program. Our 4-week "Endurance Camp" program will be very similar in nature and most of the information below applies to that as well.
What is Hydrow Training Camp? How does it work?
- Training camp is a 6-week program designed to help you kick off a new season with strength and positivity
- There are 3 program levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.
- Each program has 4 workout sessions per week ranging from 20-45 minutes.
- Each program has an assessment in Week 1 and Week 6 so your progress is measurable and meaningful.
- Hydrow Athletes will lead the way as you get stronger and fitter!
How do I sign up or join this training program?
There is no registration or sign-up necessary. Simply scroll down on your Hydrow's Home screen to where "Training Camp" is listed (starting 12/31) and select the Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced track. From there you can begin the first workout in your selected program. See How Do I Find the Training Camp Workouts?
How will my progress be tracked?
Workouts you complete will receive a check-mark on Hydrow, but we'll also be keeping track behind the scenes. As you complete Training camp videos along any of the three tracks, we will be marking your milestones with personalized progress emails to keep you engaged and motivated along the way!
Lastly, weeks #1 and #6 will finish with an assessment challenge which you can use to objectively measure your performance and progress against!
What difficulty level should I choose?
If you're new to Hydrow or rowing in general we'd say start with the Beginner track. For everyone else, feel free to sample a few workouts to get a feel for them before you commit to one track. Training camp is a marathon, not a sprint. Pick a difficulty level that you're confident you can stick with and keep coming back to for the whole program!
Do I need to join the Facebook group to participate?
Absolutely not. While our Facebook group is a great forum to connect with other Hydrow users and see news about training camp, it is an optional part of the program. No Facebook account is required to participate in Training Camp.
Do I need to use the iOS app?
No. Training camp is something you participate in using your Hydrow exclusively. This is open to both iOS and Android users.
Are there swag prizes or other rewards for participating?
No. Training camp is not a promotion, contest or giveaway. It is a series of workout programs to help guide you on the way to achieving your own personal fitness goals! The results are their own reward here!
