Breaking Barriers began with one man’s dream to apply lessons from his own triumph over tragedy to the challenges faced by his community. Founded in July 2005, Breaking Barriers strives to assist youth to achieve personal growth and foster community development though the sport of rowing. As part of our mission to help young people develop healthy attitudes and practices toward themselves and their communities, Breaking Barriers offers training in physical fitness coupled with mentoring, team building, and community development activities. Program development includes BB Fit training, nutrition and rowing .
Our rowing program teaches BB fit, conditioning, and nutrition along with the skill of rowing on an indoor rowing machine, and indoor rowing tank. The sport of rowing is a total body workout which will offer youth better health, improve study habits, and a greater chance of a scholarships to college. We offer video classes on rowing technique along with talk sessions to help our youth become more understanding of this sport and how it will impact their lives. Coaches and trainers will also help with the training and education.
