#HipNJ: Inside Go Row Studios, Hoboken

#HipNJ’s Sam Selvaggio made a visit to Hoboken to check out Go Row Studios, a great fitness center locally owned by trainer Garrett Roberts.

Garrett tells #HipNJ that this fitness center is an indoor rowing studio that incorporates rowing and weight training. He instructs 55 minute classes with only about 9 people. He likes to make it feel like a group personal training class.

“It’s really intense” Garrett tells #HipNJ. You can burn well over 1,000 calories in just one class! Now that’s a workout! Many people think rowing is just an upper body workout, but Garrett tells us that its actually 60% lower body and 40% upper body. As a result of this great workout, one can experience increased heart rate very quickly resulting in high amounts of calorie burning. This rowing motion incorporates many different muscles you wouldn’t think of like your back, shoulders, legs, and even your core. What a great well rounded workout!

#TBT: The Peer Group, Throwback to One of Our First Segments!

This Thursday we’re throwing it back to February where #HipNJ’s Gina Cermielia visited The Peer Group in Florham Park to check out a ground breaking new technique in combating age!

According to Dr. Isaac Starker, plastic surgeon at The Peer Group, Ultherapy is a new ultrasound treatment that works by administering the same ultrasound used medically to take pictures. This Ultherapy focuses the ultrasound to specific layers below the skin, creating heat. The heat stimulates collagen formation and as a result the skin tightens and lifts to create the desired cosmetic change!

Jack Patten, territory manager at Uthera Inc., says it’s the only technology that actually bypasses the skin and treats form the inside out. Jack tells #HipNJ it only takes an average of three to six months for results and some even see results immediately!

Catherine Indalecio, an Uthera user, really loves this new treatment. She says it is great not going under anesthesia and the process is quick and easy! There are great improvements without the need for surgery and long recovery! To book your trip to The Peer Group visit www.peergroupnj.com today!
