    I am seeking a rowing coach for my 16 year old granddaughter. She has been on the OJR crew since this past fall. She LOVES the sport but needs instruction in order to be able to compete successfully. She is an honor student and plays travel soccer. Rowing is the sport that can become her passion! Can you help us find an instructor that will help her reach her goal.

    I have been fortunate to have Evelyn Hamann, probably one of the best known and well liked employees here at Riverplace, as a personal trainer since 1995. She and I try to work out twice a week.

    I have been committed to some kind of exercise regime since my mid-30′s but having a trainer challenges me to focus on workout strengths while paying attention to areas that need more attention. One of these, especially important as we all get older, is maintaining good balance. Evelyn incorporates exercises that not only test my physical balance but address body mechanics, i.e., one side, arm, leg, being stronger than the other. I notice the benefit of this training particularly when on a steep, unstable hiking trail.

    Our sessions are always different even when we are concentrating on something specific or working around an injury. Evelyn is flexible and creative and suggests good modifications when an exercise just doesn’t feel right. Because of her educational background and experience she is a good resource whether I am searching for an orthopedist or a new jump rope. Many members go to her for counsel when contemplating surgery or when uncertain about equipment use. She is our advocate for good health and is always willing to share information.

    Ev and I have become good friends and I admire her for what she has been able to accomplish, both in her professional and personal life. Through her high level of encouragement, determination and commitment she has made a difference to many here at RAC, transfusing those qualities into our everyday workouts.
