New Rowing Program at Metropole!
We’d like to start by welcoming new trainer Kyle Suib to the VIDA personal training family here at Metropole! Kyle joins us from the University of Delaware, where he was on the Crew Team and has continued to compete in rowing, triathlons, Crossfit and DC Flag Football of course!
“In middle school I was always trying to find something to occupy my time so I took up tennis. I was really bad at it, but found out I was a good runner. This lead to four years of cross country running in high school, and then I was convinced to try out for rowing in college. I landed a spot on the University of Delaware Crew team and have been rowing ever since!”
Kyle has since rowed competitively for the DC Strokes & the Potomac Boat Club, and is thrilled to be bringing his own rowing program to VIDA.
“Rowing is a full body workout that requires some thought behind it. It can be used for intense cardio, toning, or strength training. Using the ERG helps increase the O2 capacity of the body and increases flexibility in the legs, back, shoulders, and core,” says Kyle.
This program will be a small group training class limited to 4-8 people that will meet twice a week for six weeks. You’ll learn how to master the rowing machines, with bodyweight and ab exercises built into the class to accomplish a full body workout. Kyle will show you how to read the ERG on your own so you can continue to incorporate rowing into your workouts even after the program is over!
What can you expect from this program? Improved metabolism, VO2 levels, stress management and weight loss, just to name a few.
“My motto is you will go home sore, you won’t go home in pain,” says Kyle.
After the six weeks are up participants will have built enough skill and confidence to move on to the intermediate rowing level; which will be an option for those looking to progress in difficulty and push themselves to their maximum potential.
