Siblings Kristina and Joey Tagliente are opening a luxury rowing studio, Row Republic, at 77 N. Washington Street. They spoke at the October Neighborhood Council meeting to share details about the studio and answer questions.

Joey spoke about joining rowing after a football injury in college. His sister Kristina was a rower and encouraged him to start. He stressed how rowing helps build self-confidence and team bonding.


Kristina emphasized the importance of building community and having a great overall experience. The Row Republic Studio will have two bathrooms and four showers stocked with quality products.

Half the time of a class will be spent on a rowing machine and half doing weight lifting. When you sign up, you’ll be given a digital band that keeps track of all your stats, total meters, etc. You’ll also be able to “race” against friends and other gym members with the bands.

The Taglientes hope to open Row Republic in January or early February. Rates and more information will be posted on their website in the upcoming months.
