College of Charleston sailing team is benefitting from “sport-specific” workouts tailored by a trainer- Charleston Post and Courier

I had my stereotype of sailors blown to the wind last week.

My limited experience with sailing and sailors gave me the impression that they didn’t really have to be in great shape. After all, I’ve known way too many sailors who had pot bellies and used rum and cigarettes as their performance-enhancing drugs.

At the insistence of College of Charleston Director of Sailing Greg Fisher, I observed a workout last week and was surprised to see athletes with track star quadriceps knocking out multiple pull-ups with good form and going all out on interval training on stationary bikes.
