Perspiration gets mischievous when cooped up inside the body, acting out by drenching armpits on first dates and disguising itself as tears during job interviews. Release disgruntled body water with today's Groupon: for $20, you get three Indo-Row rowing classes (a $51 value). Choose between two locations: Revolution Fitness in Santa Monica or Studio 1-On-1 in Venice.
Created by former world-champion rower Josh Crosby, the compact Indo-Row machine realistically recreates the movements of a boat in water, complete with wake-like sounds. The Indo-Row program debuted at Santa Monica's Revolution Fitness in 2004, sparking an international rowing phenomenon. Each class packs an entire season's worth of rowing into a non-consecutive 50 minutes and some even follow a taped KCRW DJ track-assisted regimen of leg-, arm-, and core-toning work—made beginner-friendly by adjustable resistance levels—culminating in a friendly, sportsmanlike "race" between two teams of students. Weather permitting, Venice's Studio 1-On-1 holds rowing classes outdoors, bringing each group of 13–14 oarsfolk as close to the real thing as possible without interning for a pirate captain. Scheduled sessions are posted online several times a week for both the Revolution Fitness and Studio 1-On-1 locations.
