Current Fitness: Rowing for Abs

Please sit back and relax as you board this bicycle built for two headed down fitness memory lane.

When I lived in DC I briefly saw a personal trainer. I think I got 3 free sessions with a new gym membership. That trainer was obsessed with the rowing machine. I had never used one before and my introduction to the rower was characteristically spastic. I remember struggling to work the electronic monitor and once that was sorted, to look like a vaguely normal person when fake rowing. I always got my feet stuck in the sneaker cages, which I argued to the trainer posed a serious evacuation hazard. To date, aside from a few brief dances with the rower at the fhitting room, those training sessions were my only interaction with the machine.

Until last week.

My first visit to I. AM. YOU. yoga studio

I read internet mumblings that I. AM. YOU.  was an A-grade yoga studio. My zone of existence for fitness doesn’t extend to Little Italy, so I’d never been.  I had plans to meet pal Tracey (creator of Kale with a Side of Fries) who lives downtown for a workout + dinner date and that was impetus enough for me to venture to Mulberry Street.

Let’s dig in because you’ll want to be prepared.
