Exploring New Studios: weRow Minneapolis

and the studio explorations continue…

WeRow Minneapolis

A couple weekends ago we had friends in town visiting. The boys went golfing one  morning, so my friend Leigh and I decided to head out for a studio workout. We cruised the classpass website for a studio with a class time that we could work with and ended up at weRow Minneapolis.

weRow is located in Northeast Minneapolis right along the Mississippi River – the studio has plenty of parking which makes it very convenient for those who do not live nearby to come try it out! Another plus – weRow is just a couple blocks from Spyhouse Coffee, perfect for a post sweat treat!

This studio is an indoor rowing studio that offers a variety of classes; classic row, HITT row, and row sculpt. If you haven’t tried a rowing class (no matter where you live) – google a nearby studio and try it out! Rowing is a great way to get in a good cardio workout with no impact and lots of core and arm strength training all at once! For my Boston readers – head over to Btone Fitness – their row classes are killer!

Leigh and I took the Row Sculpt class which was an hour of strength training mixed in with rowing sprints. The class was so challenging! The instructor created a circuit of 7 rounds – each round would begin with a 200 meter sprint on the rowing machine followed by three strength exercises. After a quick warm-up we completed this circuit as many times as we could in the 40 minutes. Luckily, Leigh and I pushed each other threw two rounds and were so happy once class was over. We definitely felt it the next day..

I love a good row class, so I am excited to get back to weRow to take one of their signature classes! If you are local check them out (and they are on classpass too).
