Whether you’re a seasoned rower or total newbie, CREW caters to all fitness levels. The qualified instructors will walk you through the correct rowing technique, be it the beginner class “Crew101” class or the more advanced,  sweat inducing “Regatta”. The state of the art equipment was specifically designed in collaboration with WaterRower, meaning the beautifully crafted machinery includes a unique water flywheel that simulates the feel and sound of being on the water.
