Cool Rowings CR helps people into more movement and activity. In a nutshell CR gets more people to become active in a sport which has so many benefits both physically and mentally.
Weininger Irwin the founder of Cool Rowings is passionate about getting more of us to row.
He is a Community Exercise Officer who loves sport so much that he created his own, WRS (Weininger Resistance Sliding) more about that later!
He's probably best remembered by people, (of a certain age) as the man who beat the likes of Wolf and Warrior to claim the title of the first ever Gladiators Champion in the ITV series of the 1990s.
Weininger welcomes the challenge of introducing people to rowing and beyond.

I was invited to one of the top rowing clubs (Upper Thames Rowing Club) in the UK as a result of producing a time that was recognised by a former world champion. I simply put what I read and understood from reading a Concept II rowing manual. I put it into action, and followed the training plan.
What was apparent at that time in my life, was that I was the only person of colour in a well attended rowing club. Cool Rowings is an entry point for making a difference and addressing this .
Cool Rowings (CR) does not want accessibility to a sport to be hindered by access to the training opportunities/equipment or not feeling included!
CR is a way to address this and I/we look forward to introducing everyone to the benefits and opportunities of
