RZ Signature

This class is taught by:

Emily R.

Emily was introduced to RowZone by a friend and after taking 2 classes was hooked.  Little did we know that a new trainer was in the making.
Emily rowed Division 1 at Bucknell and now takes any chance she can to get back out on the water. Emily finished her doctorate in Physical Therapy at Drexel and currently work as an outpatient physical therapist with a focus in sports medicine.
Emily enjoys helping people achieve their goals and believes exercise is as good for your mind as it is for your body.   Emily looks forward to bringing her personal love of rowing and variety workouts to instruct fun and challenging classes!

Laura kicked our butts. The erg/mat workout was fun and kept us motivated throughout class, and three days later we were still feeling it.”

Gary B

Gary has been a member of RowZone since June 2012. The minute he finished his first class, he knew he was hooked. He has lost over 20lbs since he started and has taken more than 4 inches off of his midsection. He has been so motivated by the transformation of not only his body, but his mind, as well. So much so, that he became a certified personal trainer, as well as CPR certified for the sole purpose of becoming an instructor at Row Zone. He has a passion and enthusiasm for Row Zone because he knows what it has done for him and is excited to seeing what it can do for others.
