    About Iron and Oar:

    Iron and Oar is Chicago’s only dedicated indoor rowing studio. The class structures we offer are unique as they are equal parts strength and cardio. Our workouts incorporate dynamic sculpting exercises which help build lean muscle mass, while interval sprints on the concept 2 rowing machine get’s the heart rate up and burns up to 800 calories in 45 minutes. Unlike spinning and running, rowing is a total body form of cardio. You’re not just using your legs, but your using your abs, arms and shoulders all at the same time. Our workouts begin with a 5 minute warmup designed to teach new rowers the proper technique as well as prepare clients for the workout ahead. We also offer ROGA a half rowing based, half yoga class and a one hour weekly vinyasa yoga class.

    About Class:
