Fuse45 Builds a Workout around the Concept2 Rower

Rowing is known to be one of the best full body workouts EVER because it's high intensity and low-impact. You can have all fitness levels in one class because everyone rows at his or her own pace and has different performance metrics to hold accountability.

Fuse45 mother daughter team perfect the personal workout on Fox2

Karen Kelman (mother) and daughter (Samantha Friedman) have been dreaming up workouts together for more than a decade. Samantha fell in love with exercise when her mom used to train her at the gym when she was only 13 years old. Staying healthy and fit has been a theme throughout Karen and Sam's lives and they set out to make it their career when the opened their first studio, Cycle & Row in West Bloomfield, Michigan in 2015. Now, they are on to studio #2 called Fuse45 on Royal Oak, Michigan and they have no plans to slow down. They created the first ever non impact workout that is high intensity and works your whole body. Listen to their Fox2 interview.

Non rowing exercises you can do with a rower (rowing machine)

Rowing is said to be one of the best exercises ever because it's completely full body and gives you both cardio and strength training in one place. While we love traditional rowing, sometimes it's fun to change things up and use the rower for even more. Check out this quick video for great full body strength exercises, focusing on arms, core and legs. The first is a weighted lunge move. The second is a not-so-typical plank and last is an inverted crunch and pike combo. Let us know what you think! Love, Your Fuse45 Founders
