WESLEY CHAPEL — The first time Lee Cassell took a fitness class at Row House, he was immediately hooked. After flying out to the corporate studio in California and taking a class with the president of the company, Cassell signed up to open a location.

On September 30, husband and wife, Lee and Kathryn Cassell, opened the doors to their Row House studio located at the Shops at Wiregrass. A grand opening celebration is planned for October 26.

Row House offers low-impact and high energy workouts centered on the rowing machine, or ergometer. Using 85 percent of the body’s muscles, rowing maximizes calorie burn, activates the core, strengthens and lengthens the body and ultimately improves posture.

“There’s very little impact on any of your joints,” said Lee Cassell, co-owner. “When done correctly, it is not only an unbelievable cardio workout, but a full body, muscle strengthening and toning workout as well.”

Row House offers six classes that include House, Body, Power, Restore, Full Row and Stroke. Classes are appropriate for people of all ages and fitness levels. Modifications are incorporated for those with injuries or chronic ailments.

Row House is at 28163 Paseo Drive. It is open 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 5:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call (813) 540-3769 or visit
