Kristina Tagliente- COFOUNDER



After being a coxswain on the men’s rowing team, I always had a passion for motivating others. There was a special energy in the boat when we all worked together. Whether it was on or off the water, rowing is what gave me my competitive outlet as well as my community.

I recommended my brother, Joey (co-founder of Row Republic), join the rowing team in college after his career ending concussion. Not only did he fall in love with the sport like I did, but it’s something we truly bonded over as siblings. My hope is that people connect with the sport like Joey and I did, and that Row Republic becomes more than a workout—but a community.

Why I Row The workout and because it’s fun!

Music Style Love a good remix mixed in with some throwbacks and hip hop

Guilty pleasure Pizza, ice cream, and wine
