“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.”

A smarter workout for better results

  • 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!

“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.”

CITYROWOur signature class combines rowing intervals on sexy, water-based rowing machines with dynamic sculpting exercises for the perfect balance of cardio and strength training. This heart-pumping, sweat-drenched, total-body burn is as fun as it is effective. New to rowing? Don’t sweat it – we’ll teach you everything you need to know.

FUNDAMENTALSThis 50-minute workshop will introduce you to our WaterRower rowing machines and teach you the basics of proper rowing form. With class capacity capped at 10 people, the focus is on form and individualized attention. And don’t worry – while you’re learning, you will also be sweating. Not a prerequisite, but great for newbies as well as return clients who want deeper instruction on proper form.​

CITYROW FLOWStarts with one interval of heart-pumping, total body cardio on our water-based rowing machines followed by vinyasa flow 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.

CITYROW XOur signature class taken to the extreme – more sprints, more reps, more weight, more sweat. We’re turning the intensity up while staying true to our promise of providing a smart, total-body workout that you won’t find anywhere else. Not recommended for first-timers. Check the schedule for details on prerequisites.

CITYROW 75This 75-minute session gives equal attention to cardio, strength-training and the critical, but too-often-ignored practice of stretching. The class boasts 50 minutes of our signature cardio and strength training followed by 25 minutes of active recovery using everything from yoga to foam rollers to stretch and soothe muscles for improved flexibility and mobility.

“CITYROW 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.”
