In case you haven’t noticed, we love working out on water these days. However if you’re not into getting your hair wet (we don’t judge), there’s a low-impact workout that mimics exercises performed on water, without needing to be near it.
Behold, East End Row, the total body workout that’s gaining traction in celebrity hot-spot, Southhampton. As a combination of indoor-rowing and mat-based strength training, this low-impact yet high intensity sweat session is said to burn up to 1,000 calories in just 50 minutes.
You may remember it as the elite team sport from your high school or college years, but rowing is one of the best workouts for your whole body, requiring a combination of muscles and serious stamina. In other words, you’ll be feeling the burn in no time.
East End Row’s Fitness Director, Jessica Lynn knows all to well the importance of maintaining a healthy balance of effort, strength, and performing at your peak level. Having suffered from injuries, she began rowing as a low-impact way to workout, as suggested by her doctor. After leading successful classes through premier boutique fitness studios in New York City and the Hamptons, she now shares her extensive knowledge in anatomy, nutrition and fitness to provide a unique and engaging teaching method.
Set in a vast loft style studio, rowing machines are spaced out with mats to make sure your workout keeps your muscles guessing. Prepare to use the rower in ways you never would expect, from Pilates to SLT classes.
With summer just around the corner in the northern hemisphere, we can see why New Yorkers can’t get enough of this premier boutique studio and workout.
