Instructor: Emmy Rigali
If you have ever used a rowing machine, you know it provides a full body workout. Go Row is an interval class that combines cardio and strength to work your body from head to toe.
The class began on the rowers with a warm up to get us acquainted with the machines and several rows of varying speeds and distances. Rowing seems like a breeze until you are going full force. After the first cardio block we moved to the floor to do a strength/core section which was one of the more challenging ab workouts I had done in a while. Then it was back onto the rower for a variety of distance and sprint intervals followed by an ab section performed on the rowers.
This class was a fun and refreshing workout. I left feeling exhausted and accomplished.
Instructor: Emmy is the owner of Go Cycle and is one of those spark plug instructors that just gets you motivated. She watches your form and helps you get comfortable in your strides. She is also hilarious which makes the workout fly by.
Extras: The studio has a locker room and showers. The building is the home of Go Cycle, Go Row and Go Spa so you can take spin classes, row classes, and spa treatments all under one roof. Go Cycle and Go Row are on Class Pass and you can attend each 3 times.
