Rower. Speaker. Coach.

Welcome to my website!

I’m Esther Lofgren, coach, motivational and keynote speaker, and 2012 Olympic champion rower.

Coaching: I offer private coaching lessons for novice, high school, college, elite, and masters rowers. I am based out of Potomac Boat Club in Washington, D.C. but coach athletes across the country and around the world.

Contact me to learn more about how I can help you meet your training goals.

Speaking: I’ve shared my story with Fortune 100 and 500 firms, teams and schools around the world. This year’s projects include working with the Women’s Sports Foundation on the Athlete Leadership Connection, helping college student-athletes share their athletic journey as they transition to the corporate world.

Check out some of my work here, and contact me to learn more about how I can help motivate and inspire your organization!

Rowing: I still row and hope to keep going into my 100s. Check out this great video Mark Leisher Productions put together – a little glimpse at training! – and other projects along the way.
