“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!

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. 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.

Please familiarize yourself with our Policies before attending class.

“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.”
