LHRL Podcast #22: Sara Hendershot | Lift Heavy Run Long

Sara Hendershot


Lifelong athlete and competitor, Sara began rowing at Simsbury High School outside of Hartford, CT. She continued her rowing career at Princeton University where she majored in Psychology. Upon graduation, she earned her way on to the United States Women’s National team and became a two-time World Champion and 2012 Olympian.

When Sara hit a frustrating wall of injury in 2014, she knew she had to change the way she trained or her rowing career would be over. She began a journey seeking health and peak performance, but the path that unfolded changed how she understood rowing and body movement. During this time she was able to work and study with some of the world’s best rowing coaches, physiologists, nutritionists, sports psychologists, and strength trainers. Rowfficient was born, and under this new program Sara reached her best personal performances both in and out of the boat.

Sara was featured in the August, 2016 edition of Sports Illiustrated. You can read that article HERE.
