Tish Watson | weRow Indoor Rowing
“I take Tish’s classes at weRow and she does an amazing job teaching the classes, making all levels feel welcome, and still gives a challenging workout while motivating everyone in class. Her energy level and her music really push you. Her classes are intense, challenging and super fun!” –Saundra
“Tish’s classes are awesome! Time flies by and she makes exercising fun. For my first class, she took time to make sure I could row properly. Even during class, she would come over to me to make sure I felt ok. She made me feel very welcomed and she kicked my butt with the workout too. I keep coming back.” –Tim
“Tish Watson is the proprietor of weRow, a small rowing studio in Minneapolis, MN. She has built a fantastic program with excellent staff and a loyal following. It’s difficult to single out any one instructor at weRow, they’re all exceptional, so I nominate Tish. Her style of instruction demands the very best from you. She is a positive high-energy person that provides motivation and abundant smiles. Each of her staff has a unique teaching style ranging from pro technique to pure fun. Tish and weRow are deserving of this recognition because they are simply the best.” –Dave
Tyler Larson | [solidcore] – SLP
Winner for the 2nd year in a row!
“Super upbeat, fun and energetic. Makes the killer workout at solidcore what it is. Incredibly supportive and works with athletes on their form and makes sure everyone gets the most out of the workout. ALSO a killer playlist.” –Steven
“Tyler is one of the most dedicated instructors if not the most that I have ever met in my life. He is so passionate about what he brings to his clients, which are considered friends, and it’s a big community and amazing to be a part of! Always practicing what he preaches (which we love to hate in the best way!), he consistently pushes us to be our best, with an awesome playlist always on tap. I always leave feeling accomplished, stronger, confident, better and happier when I’m in a class lead by Tyler!” –Victoria
“Tyler always remembers his students and is very welcoming. He really challenges you to push yourself and always puts on a killer workout. You will never leave anything on the table after one of his classes!” –Calli
