What amenities do you offer? We have a men's and women's locker room as well as a cubby wall for you to store your belongings in. There is access to showers and bathrooms as well but please bring your own towel and soap. We have a great hydrating station for water bottles so you can effortlessly replenish your water bottle, and we also have a fountain for those that forget their bottle. If you’d like to store you items overnight, we offer monthly locker rentals for only $6.
What do I need to bring to an Erg Studio class? What do I wear? For Erg Studio classes it is best to wear athletic clothing that’s not too loose, such as leggings or more fitted shorts also t-shirts and tank tops are great. We have a great water fountain but we recommend that you bring a water bottle to the class.
What to expect? Walk down the stairs through the double doors into Pocock Rowing Center. In the main fitness area you will find your trainer, who will direct you to the changing rooms, water stations, and workout area. Pease arrive a few minutes early to warm up. Classes start punctually.
Can only experienced rowers participate in classes? No! We welcome all levels of fitness capabilities. From first day beginners to elite! We do hold “Fundamental” Row Studio classes if you want a class that is dedicated to learning the mechanics of the stroke and we do recommend taking it if you are less familiar with the rowing machines. However, in the beginning of each class we have a dedicated warm up time so if you are new to the erg we can walk you through the stroke.
What are ergs/rowing machines? An erg is a word short word for ergometer, it is the machine used as on land rowing system. It measures things like time and meters as well as a plethora of information we can teach you about. Each erg has a screen that will give you real time results of how you are doing in your workout.
Do we only erg in classes or is there a mix of exercises? Depending on the class we have some that are only erg intensive, as well as some classes that are a mix of body weight exercises mixed in with a erg workout. Check the class schedule where we give more of an overview of what to expected from each class.
What muscles can I expect to workout while using the erg? Erging is a full body workout and a great way to get your heart pumping. Contrary to popular belief erging is more legs-oriented than arms. You're pushing through the stroke with your legs and it is only in the second half when you engage your arms to help complete the stroke. You can really expect to be using a lot of your leg and trunk muscles. Erging is a great way to tone your body and build lean muscle.
