Rowing better together since 2017
We provide tools for effective off-water rowing experiences that lead to improved team performance on the water.
The Stroke Master™ elite rowing trainer powered by Syncrow™ is the brain child of Mike Schaefer and John Balint. Having met and rowed together in college, they understand the challenges of off-season training, as well as the desire for previous team rowers to stay in touch and train together remotely.
Mike brings a rare level of experience to Crew Innovations and The Stroke Master™, having spent years architecting and designing embedded controls for fuel/hybrid/electric powertrains for automotive systems. Mike learned about boats as a rower at Case Western Reserve University, where he earned a BS in Controls Engineering.
“WE KNOW WE’VE JUST REVOLUTIONIZED THE ROWING WORLD, BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT.”
