High Intensity. Low Impact. Total Body.

  • The Workout

    Alternating intervals of cardio and sculpting on and off of the row machine deliver a triple threat workout: high-intensity sweat, low-impact burn, total body results.

  • The Studio

    Our 15th floor studio offers a communal vibe and a stunning view of Union Square. Watch the sun rise – and check your form – in our light-flooded space.

  • The Machines

    Sexy row machines? That’s right. Gorgeous and functional, our WaterRower row machines use water to create dynamic resistance.

“CityRow has transformed the exercise landscape in New York. The fifty minute workout uses WaterRower to provide low-resistance training while the interval mat exercises offer a full body overhaul.”

about-us
  • BURN BABY BURN: High-intensity intervals alternate bursts of extreme activity with recovery exercises to increase aerobic capacity and efficiency. Translation: you’ll burn more calories, improve endurance and have fun while you’re doing it!
  • SAVE THE JOINTS: This is a smart workout – low-impact and form-centric to reduce the risk of injury while still providing a kick-ass workout. We made rowing central to our workout because it eliminates the force other cardio exercises put on your joints while still providing maximum burn.
  • LEGS, CORE, ARMS: Each stroke on the row machine works 84% of your muscles for a true total body workout. By coupling rowing with complementary sculpting exercises, CityRow hits every part of your body for head-to-toe toning – you’ll feel it in muscles you didn’t even know you had!

“Unlike spinning, you aren’t constricted to the equipment throughout the 50-minute workout. Rowing is interspersed with regular intervals of intense mat work, which includes free weights, planking and squats.”

SIGNATURE ROW: High intensity but low impact, Signature Row will work your entire body. Alternating cardio and sculpting intervals on and off of our water-based rowing machines, you will sweat, you will shake, but you WILL make it through with the help of a phenomenal instructor and a kick-ass playlist. Get ready to feel – and see – the difference in your legs, core and arms! New to rowing? Don’t sweat it – we’ll teach you everything you need to know to crush this class.

SIGNATURE ROW – CORE FOCUS: Like Signature Row, Core Focus takes you through alternating cardio and sculpting intervals on and off of our water-based rowing machines, but all sculpting intervals focus on core specific exercises. And by “core” we don’t just mean “abs”. We mean your entire core, the muscles that wrap around your torso… front, back, and side to side. This is the powerhouse of your body; your body is only as strong as your core!

SIGNATUREX: Signature Row taken to the extreme – more sprints, more reps, more weight, more sweat. SignatureX turns the intensity up while staying true to our promise of providing a smart, total-body workout that you won’t find anywhere else. More than a class, SignatureX is an advanced training program developed for the seriously motivated individual using CityRow’s signature combination of high-intensity rowing and strength training intervals. Not recommended for first-timers. Check the schedule for details on pre-requisites.

ROW+FLOW: Starts with one interval of heart-pumping, total body cardio on our water-based rowing machines followed by vinyasa flow style yoga, focusing on aligning your breath with movement. We call it the best of both worlds. Like salted caramel or cold-pressed cocktails, this unexpected combination results in a workout that you’ll wonder how you ever lived without.

FUNDAMENTALS WORKSHOP: Heard how amazing CityRow is but nervous to jump in? We hear you. That’s why we created the Fundamentals Workshop. In this 50-minute workshop we’ll introduce you to our WaterRower rowing machines and teach you the basics of proper rowing form as well as commonly used terminology. You’ll also become familiar with CityRow’s signature format which alternates between intervals on and off the row machine. With class capacity maxed out at 10 people, the focus is on form and individualized attention. And don’t worry – while you’re learning, you will definitely also be sweating. Great for newbies as well as return clients who want deeper instruction on proper form.

“Signature Row is intense, challenging, and works you just as hard (although in a different way, using different muscle groups) as a bootcamp or high-intensity cycling class.”

“Classes at studios like CityRow feel like a spin class, with great music and exercises next to the rower – it’s a fun full-body workout!”

Where is CityRow located?
Our address is 80 Fifth Avenue. The studio is on the 15th floor in Suite 1501. Our elevators are slower than we’d like, so please allow a few extra minutes.

What should I wear/bring?
Wear fitted, comfortable workout clothes and sneakers. You WILL break a sweat! Hydration is key, so either plan to buy a water at our front desk or bring your own water or water bottle. We have a water cooler in the studio.

Do you have locker rooms/changing rooms?
We do not have changing rooms or locker rooms at this time, so please come ready to row!

How much are classes?
Single classes are $32. We also offer multi-class packs and a 30-day unlimited option. You can review all pricing options and purchase class packages here.

Students are eligible for a 10% discount on single class passes and multi-class packs when purchasing at the front desk with a valid student ID.

The class I want to take is full. What happens if I’m put on the waitlist?

We will notify you via email if a spot opens up. If you don’t get a notification in advance, but you’re in the neighborhood, you’re welcome to drop in the studio to see there are any last-minute cancellations or no-shows.

What if I’m running late?
Running late but on your way? Give us a call at (212) 242-4790 and we’ll hold your spot for 5 minutes after class start time! If you do not call or check in by class start time your spot will be given away to someone on the waitlist. No one will be admitted into class more than 5 minutes after class start.

*Note: First timers must be checked in and on their rower by class start time or they will not be allowed in. We teach proper rowing form in the first 5 minutes, and it’s critical that first-time students receive this instruction before taking class.

What is your cancellation policy?
Class reservations may be cancelled without penalty up to 24 hours before the scheduled class. Each class not cancelled within the 24 hour deadline will result in a loss of one class from the purchased series.

When do my class packages expire?
Check the terms associated with your particular purchases, but generally: Single Class Passes and the New Client Special expire 3 months from date of purchase. 5-Class Packages expire 6 months from date of purchase. 10-Class Packages and 20-Class Packages expire 1 year from date of purchase.

“The rowing craze is quickly catching on around the nation, with some even calling it the ‘new spinning.’”
