Hi! I'm Carrie, certified nutrition coach, wellness coach and personal trainer.
I help busy executives, moms, dads, and grandparents who are ready to be active and eat better. I help them find the time in their schedule for healthy habits so they can once again have control over their health and fitness. My passion is helping people just like you live a long life in a strong, healthy body!
It's really simple - rowing works! Like cycling, it offers a way to exercise in a friendly group setting. What sets it apart from cycling, though, is that the rower (aka - the erg), engages 85% of your muscles. In one rowing stroke, you work your biceps, triceps, chest, lats, hamstrings, quads, glutes, calves, abs and back! What a great way to tone your body and improve your posture.
We chose what is probably the best rowing machine for our studio. The WaterRower Club Series mimics true water rowing. The rowing resistance actually comes from a water-filled drum at the front of the machine. In use, it even creates water-movement sound.
Another great detail, not to be overlooked, is that rowing is adaptable to your fitness level. This means that pretty much anyone can row at a pace that they find challenging.
If it is your first time using a rowing machine, we ask that you show up 15 minutes before class. That way we can get you comfortable with both the rower and the proper rowing technique.
Big Water bottle (you're gonna sweat)
Clean athletic shoes and socks
Fitted clothing (baggy shorts and long shirts can get caught in the rower)
