IT’S SMART TO BE A PART OF THE CREW
CREW workouts are safe and functional. You’ll burn calories with minimal impact on your joints and body. Classes will improve your overall health and mental toughness. Our programs are designed for persons of all ages with varied fitness levels.
ROW, ROW, ROW
A common misconception is that the rowing machine works mostly the upper body. In actual fact, it requires an equal effort from both upper and lower body, working 86% of your muscle mass. You’ll be working muscles you didn’t even know you had.
Unlike running, you control the speed and resistance of your rower. Resistance is created by how hard you push or pull. If you want to burn calories, tone, build muscles, improve posture and increase stamina, JOIN THE CREW!
“Say what you want about regular rowing, but this class is anything but predictable, we have the HIIT focused structure to thank for that.”
Row your way to health and happiness.
Never rowed before? Don’t worry, we will show you everything you need to know. We teach you proper rowing form before getting into dynamic, total body strengthening. This is achieved through varied exercises, partnered with calorie torching intervals on the WaterRower. This workout is the best way to get started.

Mike Aldridge is the Founder and Head Coach of Crew. Mike’s passion for rowing began at The Scots College. He was a member of 1st VIII for 2 years and stroked the 1st VIII and named Captain of Boats in his final year. After School, Mike had to make the difficult choice of either Rowing or Rugby. He decided on Rugby and subsequently signed a contract and moved to Italy as a 19yr old. Mike spent over 10 years playing professional rugby in Italy for Rugby Roma and also represented Italy at both U-21 and A levels.
After a long rugby career abroad, Mike returned home to Sydney ready to start a career in something he has always been extremely passionate about, that being health and fitness. Injuries had left a toll on his body. Doctor’s and Physio’s told him he shouldn’t run and to avoid high impact exercise due to the various ankle and knee injuries/surgeries he had sustained over the years.
Accordingly, Mike re-acquainted himself with his love of rowing, due to its low-impact nature. Mike has achieved outstanding results by developing programs centered around the rowing machine, along with both strength and toning exercises. Mike has spent the past four years running a successful personal training business throughout Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.
