The Experience, The Results


Why don't you focus on calories burned?
Exact energy expenditure varies according to a number of factors, including body composition, overall body weight and how hard you're working out. But even though it's difficult to pin down a precise number outside of a clinical environment, the best way to measure performance in rowing is to set meter goals. That's why we focus on the meters, just as runners focus on miles.
If everyone rows in sync, will I have to keep up with everyone?
Although we row in sync, the beauty of rowing is that you determine your own intensity. We understand that rowing takes time and we encourage you to row at your own pace.
How can you get the most out of a rowing workout? I thought it was easy.
If you’ve ever hopped on an erg and thought, “this is simple”, more than likely, your form is incorrect. Getting the most out of your rowing workout is all about technique. Make sure you’re sitting up straight, using your legs for power and always keep an eye on your split time (the big number on the monitor). If you focus on keeping this number low, you’ll be getting a better workout, and you’ll leave sweaty and accomplished!
There are some floor movements that I cannot perform.
Don't worry, our coaches can provide modifications to ensure you are taking care of your body.
Do we row the entire time?
No, we row in intervals and each class varies. Check out our class videos on the homepage to learn more.
Are there showers?
We think sweat is sexy! Check specific locations for more details on amenities. Some urban markets do have showers.
I forgot workout gear. Do you have retail?
Yes, we have a wide array of fashionable workout clothing and gear to accommodate your fitness needs.
