On the outs in 2016, big box gyms: "People are demanding better classes, more attention and new concepts, all of which they can find in the boutique studio,” said personal trainer Gerard Burley (a.k.a. Coach G). “The emergence of more and more studios with higher prices are showing that people don’t care about paying a little more for better instruction.”
Regardless of your fitness goals (weight loss, competition, general fitness and strength building) high-intensity intervals are an important component of any fitness program. This article demonstrates why we love to do intervals on the rowing machine. If you'd like to see examples of rowing interval workouts, check out our workouts page: http://ucanrow2.com/indoor-rowing-workouts/.
Group rowing classes like CityRow and Row House are the next boutique workout craze

“ Want to continue to crush well into your 80s? Here’s how.”
Last February, 59-year-old Ned Overend, aka “The Lung,” aka “Deadly Nedly,” won the first National Fatbike Championships, held in Ogden, Utah. Fat Bike Nats isn’t exactly the Tour de France, but it’s no charity ride, either. Overend had to compete against a field of much younger pros, including former national mountain bike champion Travis Brown, 46, on a tough 19-mile course.
It’s tempting to dismiss Overend as a genetic freak, an outlier who defies comparison with the rest of us. He has dominated nearly every sport he’s entered since the early ’90s, from cross-country mountain bike racing to off-road triathlon. But even among the genetically gifted—and many elite athletes are—Overend is unique in his competitive longevity. Which is the reason he’s also one of the dozen or so athletes spotlighted in Joe Friel’s latest book, Fast After 50 (Velo Press), part of a growing library devoted to salt-and-pepper chargers past (and occasionally well past) the half-century mark.
Our UCanRow2 workouts are designed to achieve exactly what they're talking about here, using the rowing machine and SkiErg to get the heart rate high. "Friel believes the key lies in intensity—that is, consistently jacking your heart rate into the upper echelons of its potential peak ... all those intervals you did in college? You never should have stopped. If anything, they become more vital as you get older."
those who slept six hours or less per night had greater weight gain than those who slept seven to eight hours. “These long-term observations support the results of short-term experiments that reduced sleep changes our hunger and cravings for specific foods, especially less healthy, more highly processed junk and snack foods,” he says.

Yes, it's true that a Fitbit and its friends aren't likely to transform your weight loss. Plus they're not great at tracking rowing workouts. We still like them, though, because they nudge you to keep moving. And it's that NEAT movement (Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) that just might make the difference when it comes to dropping pounds, especially if you're menopausal.

A regular yoga practice is one of the best ways to keep a cardio or weight regime humming along. Try these basic moves, your body will thank you!
Last chance for indoor rowing certification in the midwest this year! It's our first time in Cincinnati, and we probably won't be back for at least another year. Jump in and get certified to teach indoor rowing classes, or get technique coaching from the experts.
NEW YORK Slim one-room gyms are in, and the low cost of starting them is turning gym rats and workout instructors into entrepreneurs. There are no Olympic-sized pools, rows of treadmills or steam rooms in these small fitness studios.
We see this all the time in boutique rowing studios that are opening across the country. Small-group fitness and high intensity workouts (HIIT) are where it's at!
