Patrick H. Rufo


RUFO OPTIMAL WORKOUTS® (R.O.W.®)  was established in 2011 to serve as an athletic consulting company for all types of athletes (especially rowers!) and clients of all ages and abilities.

The goal has been to fill the “gaps” in their training and mindset. I have been a strength and conditioning coach and personal trainer since 2007. I have been involved in rowing, sculling, and coaching since 1996!

My passion is to help my athletes, coaches, and clients believe in themselves and their mission. In addition, I help parents understand their athlete’s strengths and behaviors that work for them.

We begin with a simple conversation about what you want to accomplish and decide what solutions and tools will work best for you.
