SHOW NOTES

In the early days of starting a business, it can feel like there’s so much more that you don’t know than you do. If you’re in that phase, it’s okay. When you’re striving for what you want, things aren’t always going to go smoothly. But, nothing in life worth having is meant to be easy.

When you do something you love, you find a way to make it work.

Helaine Knapp

Founder & CEO of CityRow Go. After spending years climbing the corporate ladder, Helaine Knapp left the world of publishing for tech start-up life. Group fitness was her outlet while working hard and taking on the hustle and bustle of New York City. However, months of spin and boot camp classes left her with a lower back injury, and she began searching for a workout that was low impact, but super effective. After a friend suggested rowing, Helaine initially rejected it as something “my dad did in college,” but following a few workouts on a sexy machine, and pairing it with total body sculpting moves, her mind was changed and the concept for CITYROW was born. With a mission of delivering a smart, fun, effective workout to all fitness levels, under Knapp’s leadership, CityRow has grown from one studio in New York City to a national, omnichannel fitness brand with 12 open studios and 65 franchises sold nationwide along with a top-ranked, on-demand, global program featuring at-home rowers and a fast-growing digital subscription business. Knapp has yet to row on the water and has been featured as a business leader and a wellness expert on TODAY, Women’s Health, ABC, Harper’s Bazaar, Shape, Well + Good, Vogue, Yahoo! Finance, and PEOPLE, among many others.
