We all know nothing beats the feeling you get after a particularly brutal workout. Well, thanks to CITYROW, Atlanta now has a new place to break a sweat and catch an endorphin high.
The studio, opening in Midtown November 2019, combines sweaty strength work with grueling rowing drills for a workout that’s high-intensity, low-impact, and super efficient. And while your endurance and willpower are going to be put to the test, we promise you’ll always be happy you went.
They say a single rowing stroke works 84% of the muscles in your body, so we hope you’re prepared for an intense workout. But in CITYROW’s signature classes, you won’t just pick a rower and go through the motions for 50 minutes. Nope, during these cardio-heavy workouts, you’ll switch between drills on their custom, water-based rowers and resistance exercises that target your arms, legs, and core. (We warned you this wouldn’t be easy.)
Never been to a rowing class? Don’t sweat it. Classes are suited for newbies and veterans alike. That’s why each session starts with a warm-up that focuses on proper rowing technique before beginning a series of all-out circuits. Every class ends with a monthly finisher exercise that is consistent across all CITYROW studios throughout the country. Then, you’ll cool down with a group stretch before wiping the sweat away and riding those feel-good vibes all day long.
So, what will ATL’s first CityRow location look like? Expect a spacious studio with 20 WaterRowers, shower facilities, and individual lockers, all detailed with the classic CITYROW blue.
Not to mention, it’ll be located within walking distance of THREE of our favorite healthy-ish taco places (Takorea, Escorpión, Rreal), as well as a Kale Me Crazy. So after you’ve fully fatigued your muscles, you can treat yourself to tacos, margs, or a cold-pressed juice.
Opening day details are still being kept on the down-low, but when we know, you’ll know. And like with every other CITYROW location, your first week is free, so really, you’ve got no excuse not to check ’em out.
