The Power Of Group Exercise And Working Out Together

Roworx Indoor Rowing classes are in full ‘swing’ in Long Beach, CA at 5750 Boathouse Lane. Recently, there have been more and more members displaying huge success stories with weight loss, better nutrition habits, higher energy levels, and muscle endurance and tone.

Most of the membersjack 2 at Roworx in Long Beach are seeing these results in less than two months of participation since beginning the group classes! Nearly half of the Roworx members attend these group indoor rowing classes an average of three to four times per week at the Boathouse location. The power of group exercise was how Jack Nunn, Owner of Roworx, got started in the field of group instruction. Jack was burned out by long hours and training alone most of the time while trying endlessly to make the US National Rowing Team year after year. After a couple years of disappointing finishes and losing by .034 seconds to make the 2003 World Championships, Jack needed motivation to keep moving forward and stay in shape. Jack’s father John Nunn always conveyed the notion that ‘anyone can work out on a good day, it’s the bad days that get you and wear you down and make you want to stay in bed.’ However, with group training and instruction you are held accountable while working out with friends that drive your motivation, give you a variety and make it fun while learning better technique in any activity you do.

In addition to these amazing accomplishments in the fitness and nutrition fields, joining a group exercise class such as Roworx and or bootcamps also add many other benefits to your workout experience:


Marine Stadium is the perfect place to hold our exercise classes. During the workouts you can look out over the bay, walk by the shore/bay, check out the marina, watch the speed boats, and water skiers jet by with gusto and get some sunshine with amazing sunsets to end the day. There’s also a sandy beach which people lay out at over on the other side of the stadium. Marine Stadium was recently designated as an official state historic site. The stadium was the site for the 1932 Olympic Rowing competition and the 1968 Olympic rowing trials.



At ROWORX we only hire the best! Growing up in the shadow of my father, John Nunn (Bronze Medalist in Men’s Rowing 68′ and Olympic Men’s Rowing Coach 76′), I have always had the respect of rowing and what it can offer physically if your technique is good. Just like any sport technique plays a massive role in the performance of our sport. Power is nothing without solid technical rowing skills. We currently have 5 National Rowing and Olympic Team members from the past and present teaching our classes.

  • Groundwork—Emphasize longer, steadier work. The goal is to develop a good base of general cardio conditioning and adjust your muscles to the specific motions of your sport. Include plenty of stretching, flexibility, and strengthening exercises.
  • Training—Tailor your workouts for the distance and intensity of your upcoming events. You will need to train a bit at your race pace to develop a sense of pace for your competition. Include shorter, harder work to increase your intensity level, and longer, easier work to improve endurance.
  • Active—Keep sharp and rested during this phase, and recover between events. Increase your workload if your events are fewer and further apart.
  • Recovery—This phase is about variety, fun and
