And even though this is often the off-season for indoor rowing as lots of rowers lock up the ergs and head out to the wet stuff (no thanks) thoughts for the season ahead can still be a great motivator. Setting goals is incredibly important. Just remember to set short term goals as well as long term goals. Get those ‘quick wins’ every now and then to keep you motivated.
And if there’s anything I can help with when it comes to goals you’re setting, training plans, technique or even just a question you can’t ask anyone else, do get in touch (email@example.com) as often this is how I get inspiration to make new videos.
Because the truth is, I know full well why my channel isn’t as successful as the others. By continuing to create long workout videos with no adverts in the middle, I’m not an attractive prospect for YouTube to suggest to people. I can clearly see this when I make a much shorter app review or technique tip video. Because the viewer watches a few short clips in one go and watch more adverts, suddenly YouTube likes me again, more views, more suggested ‘next up’ videos!
So am I going to stop making RowAlong workouts and concentrate on short form click-bait videos? Of course not. RowAlong will always be two things.
1) About creating and providing workout videos for you to Row Along to – and
2) Free on YouTube.
As long as YouTube doesn’t charge to watch, RowAlong will always be free. Sure, I have a Patreon page if you want to donate to support RowAlong, but I’m not asking you to pay to watch.
ErgZone now requires a subscription to view rows older than 30 days (entirely for the support and development of their app, nothing goes to me) and Kinomap requires a subscription – but you don’t NEED to use them. The rows will always be free to access on YouTube.
Because, as I said, I just want to RowAlong with you. Back to the day job it is then…
Until I see you in the next video, row well and be well,
