Chris R

Chris Roberts joins the RowZone team with his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Temple University and is applying to grad school for physical therapy.
Chris started his love for rowing and fitness as a non athletic and slightly overweight 14 year when he picked up rowing at Roman Catholic High School for Boys. He fell in love with the sport and fitness and lost 20 pounds his first year of rowing. Chris continued the sport as a student at Temple as well.
Chris helps coach rowing at both Roman and Temple and has wealth of knowledge about technique on the erg and in the boat. He has a number of metals, including a silver and bronze from the Dad Vails and a Gold Medal at the Stotesbury Cup Regatta, the largest high school rowing event in the world.
Chris has aspirations to try out for the US national lightweight team, and his best 2k score as a lightweight was 6:32. He enjoys high intensity interval and lifting free weights to workout, so he is not only the perfect RowZone client, but the perfect RowZone trainer!
