Rowing is one of the best exercises for your body with zero impact, and what makes it even better is that it is totally adaptable and its intensity can vary for every person. Our coaches are specially trained to be ready to help you adapt and maximize your workout, just let them know ahead of time if you have any injuries or special considerations. With every class comes increased confidence and strength, so we encourage first timers to go at their own pace and have fun.
