BIZNOTE: Row House opens Thursday

Six months after first word that the Row House was on the way to the AJ Apartments building at 42nd/Oregon, it’s about to open. We stopped by this afternoon for a peek inside. The newest branch of the nationwide indoor-rowing chain will “soft open” on Thursday with the first of a few days of free classes. They’re also having an open house 4-7 pm on Saturday (October 26th).

P.S. The Row House is among the businesses offering activities at Sunday’s West Seattle Junction Harvest Festival, so look for their booth on California between Edmunds and Alaska 10 am-2 pm that day.

    COOL! I’m one of those crazy people that loves rowing. I do; however, miss the machines that had the chunky old video screen where you avoid the shark…. sigh, good times.

      I saw a rowing machine at an exercise equipment store a couple of weeks ago that had water resistance. Instead of fan blades within a metal housing it had paddles immersed in water in a clear plastic housing. It was EXTREMELY smooth and quiet.

        The machines at my gym are like that. I love hear the water swoosh.

    I’d love to give it a try, but never been on a machine- and, honestly, intimidated to go into a class knowing nothing. If they add a few more 9 am classes I might get brave and go. Would be a good workout while the kids are in morning preschool.

      ACG- I am sure if you called them they would be happy to show you how it works.

    I went to a training class last week for a friend who works there. It’s super newbie friendly. They break everything down and make you feel comfortable. I would highly recommend checking it out !
