Rowing is the New Running // ft. Total Row Fitness

Hi guys! I hope you’re all having an awesome week. It’s been a crazy one for me, buuuut what else is new?

So I just want to jump right in and talk about Buckhead’s newest (and coolest) rowing studio, Total Row Fitness. As you guys probably saw from my Insta Stories, I’ve been incorporating Total Row 30- and 45-minute classes into my routine and loving them. YEP, you can get an amazing workout in only 30 minutes. I sound like an infomercial,  but that’s beside the point…


Nobody has time to work out for an hour and a half these days. But with Total Row’s method, you really can break a sweat and feel super accomplished in a much shorter timeframe. My personal favorite is the TR 45 class. It’s a mixture of rowing and HIIT that incorporates slam balls, kettlebells and bodyweight exercises. Think five minutes on the rower, five minutes of HIIT and so on. Burns so good. They also offer that same class format in a 30-minute version (TR 30), as well as 30 minutes of all rowing (Row 30) and 45 minutes of rowing (Indo-Row.)

Rowing is a low-impact workout that anyone of any age or fitness level can do. It works 84% of your body, too, which I am ALL for. I’m trying to get a full body workout pretty much every time I step foot in a gym or fitness studio, again because of the time thing. Nobody has it! With Total Row, you’re working 9 out of your 11 muscle groups every single time. I also want to talk about the WaterRower (this is the machine they use.) You control your own resistance based on how much power you put into your strokes, which I love because you really get to make your workout your own.


Lastly, the studio team is amazing. They make you feel like a part of the TR family from the second you walk in, and are always trying to help you perfect your form and reach your personal best. I can’t say enough good things about the amazing instructors!

I would highly recommend incorporating rowing classes into your workouts. It’s a great form of cardio that doesn’t require running (thank the LORD) – plus you’re sitting on a rowing machine the whole time. Um, yes please. If you’re interested in trying a class, use my code YESGIRL10 for 10% off any package/membership!


I hope you all have a great rest of your week! I’m off to try to unwind with a bath and some sort of hot bev. Goodnight!
