Success Record and Testimonials

I'd like to thank you for all the valuable information you shared on rowing and continuous support in the last years we are working together.  As a mostly sedentary person till age 35, I'm amazed with my training consistency in the last year without injuries. After one year of religious 🙂 training I can see my body transforming into a rower. I hear feedback from other experienced athletes that I row with that I row quite good for a person that started rowing late.  I think you have the biggest contribution in my growth as an athlete. You made a lot of valuable technical knowledge available to rowers like me who are not that young, and who are not tall enough for the sport,but have the ambition to row as good as possible. This is where most coaching interest stops. If I had not seen your content on youtube I'd have probably be rowing only recreatively or even stopped with it,  believing that competition is out of my league. Now rowing is an important part of my life that I love a lot, that has transformed me mentally and physically. Thank you for the meaningful work you do.

11x Gold and a Single Scull Trophy Bronze for the TEAM ARAMTRAINING Masters athletes at the Euromasters Regatta Munich 2023!

What a great season highlight! Well done team!

If you are serious about improving your rowing, Aram can help!  Like the best coaches, Aram has a formidable knowledge of rowing biomechanics and a great eye.  What makes Aram’s training really stand out is his patience and individualized ability to teach you how to use your muscles effectively to improve your stroke. I’ve rowed for 40+ years, and at a high level in both the US and England. I’m currently a national champion masters rower. That is to say I’ve had access to great coaching. While I’ve been <told> many times what I need to do to row more effectively, Aram takes it a step further.  With his training I’ve developed increased body awareness and muscle memory that allow me to more easily make and sustainably implement improvements.  Getting back on the water after a year of training on zoom classes I am rowing faster and more efficiently than ever before.  The weekly workouts are fun, challenging and remarkably varied.  I am so thankful that circumstances created the time and motivation for me to start training with Aram’s group on zoom.   I think no matter who you are and what your current level, from beginner to national champion, training with Aram can help you row more effectively.  I highly recommend.

In October of 2019 I asked Aram for help, as at that point I was struggling with injury and chronic fatigue syndromes for 11 months. I have taken time off, trained
according to body feel or, my smartest move so far, completely ignored any signs of
fatigue and just carried on. Unsurprisingly the last one didn’t help, but also resting
was not beneficial to my state. I knew I needed a more structured approach to
recovery. So, I got into contact with Aram and he swiftly provided me with a four
week trainings-plan.

Upon starting the program, was the first time in almost a year I started feeling better. I noticed my body was able to accept the stressors that training provides again. After the fourth week, while I wasn’t back to my old form, I was able to enter regular
training again. With less and less practices cut short due to fatigue or injury, I was
optimistic about my future in this sport (again for the first time in a year). Since the
plan has worked so well, I continued training in consonance with Aram’s program, and I could see myself improve almost on a daily basis. After a couple of months, I was back to being able to train to the same extend that my teammates were and my splits were back to normal and even better. Where in January I was forced to quit practices after 30 minutes due to my heart-rate shooting well into the 190s, I am now able to row 90 maybe 120 minutes on the rowing-machine at a significanlt faster pace and lower heart rate. This training really was a turnaround for me, and put me into a position where I was able to qualify into the Austrian Men’s coxless four, that was meant to try to qualify for the Tokyo

Aram’s eye for technique is second to none. He is able to explain things in a manner that allowed me to progress my technique very quickly and increased my speed. I have had a coach of one sort or another since I was 11 years old and Aram is the first to recognize I am an explosive athlete and adapted my training plans to match. I would recommend Aram to any serious athlete.

It’s working GREAT! I feel strong and fast without being on the edge of overtraining.

My coach PetterLjungström and I started to work with Aram and the Biorower in 2009 when I was a beginner. We have been working with Aram ever since and with his help and knowledge in human physiology, rowing technique and biomechanics I can now call myself an Olympian.

Since I was introduced to sport and rowing as a 22 year old, it was crucial for me to get both individualized and targetbased training. There were many things I needed to learn and develop!

With Aram’s help, both on distance (through Skype), and by my side in Vienna (Austria), Stockholm (Sweden), Racice (Czech Republic) and Montemor o Velho (Portugal) I got faster every year.

His individualized coaching and mental support helped me to win my first gold medal in the Swedish Championships in 2013, both indoors on the erg and on the water. The following year I was selected to compete for Sweden in the European Championships, the World Championships and also at two World Cups.

A big goal in my career was the World Championships in 2015 which also was an Olympic Qualification Regatta. I managed to qualify an Olympic spot for Sweden which Idefended in 2016in a two month long selection period.

It was amazing to experience the Olympic Games in Rio – a dream I never would have been able to reach without Aram and Biorower by my side.

Outstanding, professional and the most productive training program that I have ever experienced…
Over the past several years I have traveled all across the U.S. to train with numerous elite level coaches on the water and on two different type rowing machines. In just two training sessions on the Biorower (4-hours total), Aram provided me with more feed-back and critique about how to improve my stroke than 4-days of training on the water with other coaches! The unique and realistic feeling of the Biorower, compared to actually being in a boat on the water, combined with the coaching from Aram is the most outstanding, professional, and most productive training program that I have ever experienced!

He showed me that things can be and must be done differently, if I want to excel…

I am Junior and U23 National Coach.

My coaching style and my approach differs form my fellow coaches in my country. I get this “feedback” from them a lot… so it must be true.
But the results of my athletes and my progression as a coach are proof that it’s a good way.

I was taught like any other athlete and coach the “proper” way to do things, in my country, but my view changed a lot since I began. And I can define one moment that had a very important impact, and helped me finding my way of doing things, my way to success.

That moment was when I began working with Aram on effective rowing techique in 2011. His approach to every aspect of the preparation of a rower was singificantly different from those whom I have learnt from previously. He showed me that things can be done differently, and must be done differently if one wants to excel.

Since then I look at Aram as my mentor, who pushed me to start building success for my athletes, and also myself. Since 2011 much time has passed, and this way of doing things has resulted in recognition I have not expected in the beginning, even from those who told me previously that this way is not going to work or even tried to hold me back.

Now I have a very clear idea of what I work towards and what my goals are, a greater understandig of myself and the people I work with. But Aram reamins a fixed point for me, beacause sometimes even experienced and successful people lose momentum, and then they need advice.
I often recieve inputs from him that I know are of quality, and that they can be relied on every time.

Of the many things I have learned from Aram, the most important lesson was never to lose my goal and to constantly walk towards it. There might be set-backs, but you never stop. No matter how slow your progress might be.

My name is Jakob Zwölfer, I am 22 years old and I am high performance lightweight rowing athlete and current silver medallist at the U23 European Championships with a personal best in the single of 6:52.

Having started late, at the age of 16, Aram has been my coach ever since. Now, just about 4 years later, I have produced top results at national and international races. He made it possible for me to compete at the U23 World Championships, only 3,5 years after I had first started rowing on a Biorower.

On top of many hours of technique training, and his knowledge about physical training, Aram made me discover my mental potential to an extent, of which I had never dreamed it even exists.

Another crucial insight I got from him is the fact that I must go my own way if I want to be successful. “If we keep on doing things the way we have always done them, we will get what we’ve always had”. So, Aram helped me discover my own way, based on my personality and based on my individual physical potential.
I am looking forward to many more years!

My Name is Sprague Theobald, I’m 70 years old and live just outside of Manhattan. I rowed for a year in school many years ago. Unfortunately, I had to change schools and the new one didn’t have a rowing program. A week didn’t go by that I didn’t think about the wonders and challenges of the sport. I truly missed it, always wanting to get back into it.


Two years ago, I attended a rowing clinic, and the flame was once again lit. Then Covid hit. During this downtime I decided that I wanted to seriously get back into Masters rowing/competition but knew I needed to get in shape. One night I was looking through the internet at rowing camps and came across AramTraining. The more I read about Aram’s programs the more intrigued I became. I filled out the enrollment forms and was pleasantly surprised when Aram called me the very next day. We must have talked for an hour about my sports background, my current health and my goals. By the end of this hour, I truly felt that not only had I found a coach, but I had also gained a new friend!  Within days Aram sent me my first training plan and I started right in. Aram is amazing, he keeps the daily workouts varied enough so as not be tedious and by the same token makes them remarkably challenging. He is also always “a phone call away”! Since I started with him, I’ve lost 15 lbs. (my Covid weight) and am gaining strength and endurance daily. I truly know that working along with Aram, my goals in this amazing sport of ours will be accomplished. Simply put, I couldn’t recommend AramTraining any more highly!!


I still behind catching up on all the medal wins and the many more personal wins of this and the past seasons. On the competition side we have had Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals at Masters Nationals, Open category and Junior Nationals as well as collegiate champs in the USA, Ireland, Switzerland, Sweden, Portugal, South Africa, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Croatia, etc as well as more than 30 Gold Medals at Masters World Championships and Euromasters regattas in 2022 and 2023. Things are going well for my athletes. Besides that we had European Junior World Champions and Junior World Champions as well as national team qualifiers. 

What is more important are the many, many personal wins that are not rewarded with medals and certificates, but with personal joy of each and everyone of my athletes… and myself. This is, why I have become a coach.
