REBEL celebrates opening!

Opening party, Friday June 24th at 5:30pm with free, MICRO back-to-back row classes

Asheville, NC: On Monday, June 13th, Rebel Strength and Row House opened its doors on depot street. Rebel will hold an opening celebration on Friday, June 24th at 5:30pm. The community will have a great opportunity to check out the studio, try out the ergs and learn the value of Rebel INDOOR rowing and lifting.


Owner Adam Smith will lead 4 free, back-to-back, micro rowing sessions, each lasting 20 minutes. People are welcome to jump in and out or try all four. Our event will include giveaways, snacks and beer. This is a kid-friendly event.

Adam says, “At Friday’s open house, we hope to give people a better understanding of what Rebel is really about. When people hear ‘group rowing classes’, the common misconception is that we're hosting hour long slogs on the rowing machine. We see this event as an opportunity to show people what our classes are actually like; for visitors to see how dynamic and engaging these classes really are.”

Each 20 minute “mini” class will put attendees through a condensed, BUT very representative version of all of the components that make our rowing classes so effective and unique. We will also show our visitors the Rebel basics of our lifting and training area and describe what can be expected and achieved in our semi-private training sessions.

About Rebel Strength and Row House: Rebel Strength and Row House is a boutique indoor rowing and personal training studio located in the River Arts District in Asheville, NC. Founded and developed by Adam Smith, Rebel uses proven strength training methodologies and rowing techniques to help clients gain strength, lose weight, and become “more useful in general”. We opened our doors on June 13th.
