If you’ve ever found yourself bayside in Redwood City, maybe you’ve caught a glimpse of the Stanford rowing team ABSOLUTELY RIPPING through the water. They’re in peak physical condition. Though, if you’ve never seen a race or been part of a crew team, you should also know that their beloved/hated dryland training is BIG right now.
Enter: Row House, a popular Tustin, California and New York rowing studio who just announced they’re testing the waters in the SF. Oh, and there isn’t just one location planned — by 2019 there will be nine(!) boutiques spread across the 7×7.
Row, row, row your boat
Now, if you know nothing of rowing, you may think that it’s solely an arm workout, and we can’t promise that they won’t feel like Jell-O before class is over. But rowing is actually one of the most impactful forms of total-body cardio.
Not only is this 45-minute workout low-impact, it will help train your flexibility, create brawny strength (legs, back, upper-body, core…), and have you huffing and puffing regardless of your experience level.
And when things get hard, let the sweet tunes and team-like atmosphere motivate you.
No previous experience? No problem. Row House designed its workouts to benefit athletes of all levels. Come in, try your best, and we promise you’ll be better for it.
Classes will focus on individual skill drills, team sync rowing, and recovery to maximize the best of all worlds. Besides, who doesn’t like a challenge?
Want to visualize your effort? Progress is tracked throughout class for all the data nerds, so remember your numbers. Stick to it, and we know you’ll see improvement!
The first one, of many, is expected to be completed by November of 2018. Stay tuned for more details!
