I was fortunate to be one of the first in Canada to experience a brand new exercise class concept called ShockWave by IndoRow at Can Fit Pro, a recent fitness conference. I had tried IndoRow back in 2010 and really enjoyed the concept of a team workout:
The current general trend in fitness appears to be shorter, more intense workouts. As an experienced trainer, I must say some fitness level is required before pushing yourself at higher intensities. However, shorter workouts increase a person’s compliance, and staying consistently active in and of itself builds fitness. A workout that is fun and with an energetic group setting also helps a person stick with a program.
ShockWave was a superbly fun and challenging fitness class with an inclusive team atmosphere. The workout was an intense 24 minute circuit of 4 exercises, with rowing intervals being one of them. It was a unique experience, easy to follow, fun to do and a great workout! So far, it appears to be available at Equinox clubs in the US for now. Try it if you get a chance, you’ll be sure to enjoy it.
Ps. We have the rowers at our training studio now, so watch for our small group training class with rowers!
