Community Rowing Launches Boston’s First Rowing-Only Fitness Studio
As of this month, you can learn to row from an Olympic hopeful.
Community Rowing Inc. (CRI), a non-profit devoted to spreading the sport of rowing, launched Boston’s first rowing-only fitness studio earlier this month. CRI’s Erg Studio currently holds three 60-minute indoor rowing classes each weekday—all taught by rowers currently training for the U.S. Olympic team—with more on the docket for 2016.
Despite being taught by hard-core athletes, CRI says the new offerings are specifically tailored to amateurs, in keeping with the organization’s goal of spreading its sport to the community. As such, $5 from each class fee will go toward CRI’s free programming, which encompasses partnership with groups including Perkins School for the Blind, Boston Children’s Hospital, Boston Public Schools, and more.
Drop-in classes cost $20 each, while a 10-class pack is $110.
Classes are held Monday through Friday at 6 a.m., 7 a.m., and 6:30 p.m. at 20 Nonantum Road, Brighton. Visit communityrowing.org for more information.
