Don’t be intimidated by the idea of a workout centered on a row machine! “I was not very athletic and would be intimidated in the group fitness class, but Row House is a great workout to bring people together,” said Fahad Qureshi, owner of Alexandria’s only Row House location. “People of all fitness levels can find Row House beneficial and we can’t wait to introduce this concept to Northern Virginia residents.”
