Rowing Through Menopause Webinar

Menopause starts around age 50 for many women; its physical and mental changes affect your rowing training. Join us for 3 webinars to learn how to manage the impact menopause has on your body and what you need to change in your rowing training and recovery.

  • Managing menopause symptoms using lifestyle and medical interventions
  • Ways to use all the training categories and still include strength sessions
  • How to counter the natural decrease in muscle strength and size with age

Hosted by Faster Masters Rowing – expert coaching for masters with SPECIAL GUESTS.

Clarissa Kristjansson is a neuroscientist, an internationally known menopause educator and a health coach. She holds recognized qualifications in nutrition, mindfulness and Chinese medicine. She came into menopause coaching through her own experience with anxiety (and a host of other symptoms) that set her on a different path to empower women through this time.

Marlene Royle was among the first rowing coaches dedicated to masters. She coaches masters on the water at Aviron Knowlton Rowing, Craftsbury Sculling Center, and Lemon Bay Crew Club. Marlene founded Roylerow Performance Training Programs in 1999 to coach masters with customized rowing training programs, the first online rowing coaching service. Marlene’s coaching has produced a steady stream of FISA world masters champions.

Tessa VanDerVeeken is a Kinesologist and strength coach with a passion for training rowers specializing in athletes aged over 50. She has extensive experience working with all ages and stages of training, finding complex conditions such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis to be the most fulfilling. Tessa believes a sustainable and successful strength program can be created for anyone, regardless of any potential limitation they have.
