  • I have never rowed before. Will I be ok?
    Yes. Our class is designed to provide a world-class workout to people who have never rowed before. Before your first class, you will take “First Timer’s Orientation”, a 15-minute introduction to proper rowing form, our equipment, and our class dynamic. Go at your own pace and make sure you have fun. Our team will help you every step of the way.
  • I haven't worked out in a while. Will I be ok if I am a beginner or I am not in shape?
    Yes. Our class is designed for all fitness levels. You (especially during your first class) are encouraged to go at your own comfort level. Our staff will never push you to a level you are uncomfortable with. This is your class, you decide how hard you want to go!
  • Do you have a beginners class?
    No, we do not. We create an environment that works for clients of all fitness levels. We assume 90% of our clients have never rowed (or learned to row properly) before so we require all new clients to attend “learn to row” before their first class.
  • How often should I go?
    If you are looking for maximum results we recommend 3-5 times a week. Our workouts are programmatically designed so that they all work in unison without overworking specific muscle groups to help our members achieve their goals
  • How many calories will I burn?
    That depends on a lot of factors. Everyone is different. We have seen clients burn from 700 to 1,300 calories depending on weight, body composition, and workout level. Row Republic also has an intense afterburn effect meaning your body will continue to have an increased calorie burn up to 36 hours after class.
  • What are the benefits of rowing?
    Fat Burning Low Impact Increased Metabolism Increased Muscle Tone Increased Cardiovascular Fitness Improved Muscular Endurance Improved Core Stability Improved Strength and Power Improved Hand-Eye Coordination Stress Relief
  • Why resistance training with weights?
    We combine weight training with rowing cardio to maintain an elevated heart rate throughout the workout. Weightlifting with high-intensity intervals of rowing will maximize caloric burn and increase client's lean muscle mass.
  • Is every Row Republic class the same?
    No! Each day has a different muscle group and each trainer will set the interval length to the workout they create that day. You can expect rowing, weight training and amazing music every class but with changes that keep it fresh every time you come!
  • What is your booking window?
    We open reservations 7 days prior to class. This allows you to book out your week in advance.
  • What is your class cancellation policy?
    You can cancel a class online or by calling the studio without penalty for up to 12 hours before the start of class.
  • Do I book a rower and floor spot?
    No. You only need to book one spot. Every spot has its own rower and bench with dumbbells, kettlebells, and more so that no equipment is shared during your workout. Your trainer will guide you through the workout and you will switch on and off the rower 1-4 times depending on the class format.
  • Should I start with rower or floor?
    That is up to you. Science has shown starting with weights does burn more calories but no matter where you start you will receive the same workout!
  • What if I miss class?
    If you book a class under your membership and don’t show up, we charge you a no-show fee — which ranges in price depending on which city your membership is in. If you have a class package, unfortunately, you lose your class.
  • What time do I need to arrive before class if I am a returning client?
    We ask that Returning Clients arrive and check in at least 5 minutes prior to the start of class. At the exact start time of class, your spot may be released to someone on the waitlist or walk-in if you have not arrived. If you know you are running late, please give us a call. Please note the absolute latest we let anyone enter class is five minutes after the official start of class, even if you have already checked in.
  • How does the waitlist work?
    If the class you want is sold out, you can get on our waitlist. As people cancel, you will be automatically added to the class in the order you had signed up for. If you secure a spot more than 12 hours before the scheduled start time of the class, we will notify you by email. If a spot doesn’t open by then, you still have a chance of getting in. Just show up at least 5 minutes before class starts and once we have our no-show count we’ll start going through the wait list in order.
  • First timer tips?
    ARRIVE EARLY FOR ORIENTATION. We won’t be able to let you participate in class if you don’t. This is a strict policy so please respect it. TAKE IT SLOW AT FIRST. Rowing unlike other forms of cardio can get your heart rate elevated in a matter of seconds. We recommend taking your first 10-20 minutes of class slower than you would expect then crank it up once you get comfortable. We don’t want you to ride or die. UNDERSTAND MOST PEOPLE IN THE CLASS ARE OR WE’RE AT SOME POINT IN YOUR POSITION. You should be proud of yourself for trying something new. A new class can be an intimidating experience and we are all here to raise you to the challenge! You got this!
  • When should I arrive?
    We require new clients to attend “First Timers Orientation” which occurs 15 minutes prior to the start of each class. If you do not attend learn to row we will unfortunately not let you participate in class. The form is really important to fulling enjoying and benefit from the workout. You only need to arrive this early once!
  • What should I wear?
    Workout clothes, sneakers, and whatever makes you comfortable!
