Thames Rowing Club boasts some of the best rowing facilities in British rowing. A large gym on the first floor with over 30 ergos as well as RowPerfects and stationary bikes on one side, and then space to stretch or do circuits on the other side. The ground floor gym has a great array of free weights as well as the rowing tank fitted for both sweep and sculling and mirrors at the front to help with technique. Not many other clubs have as much equipment, land training space or as many boats as Thames.
The club has an excellent tank which can be used for both sweep and sculling and is an excellent tool to be utilized by all squads, whether complete beginners or in the senior squads.
The club has over 30 ergos and RowPerfect machines, but also static bikes for cross training and a great array of free weights, including dumb bells and bars and a leg press machine.
The upstairs gym has over 20 ergos as well as RowPerfect machines and static bikes for training in one half of the room. In the other half there is space for doing circuits or for stretching or yoga classes. In the downstairs gym, alongside the tank, there is a gym for doing free weights, which are done normally twice a week by most athletes.
In the newly refurbished club house there is a fantastic bar where you can see the river whilst having your drink at the bar or whilst relaxing on one of the lovely sofas. Many athletes go there after training both during the week and after morning training at the weekends and they are often joined by some of the house members who like to come down to enjoy a drink by the river.
