Helaine Knapp: Why Growing Right, Not Fast, is Essential for Scaling Businesses

By Ben Bradbury

Helaine is the Founder and CEO of CITYROW. After months of spin and boot camp classes left her with a lower back injury, Helaine began searching for a workout that was low impact, but highly effective, and came across the rowing machine. And so CITYROW was born, delivering at home and in-studio rowing workouts. Under Knapp’s leadership, CITYROW has grown from one studio in New York City to12 studios across the United States, along with an on-demand global program which launched in 2018. She has been featured as a business leader and a wellness expert on TODAY, Women’s Health, ABC, Harper’s Bazaar, Well + Good, Vogue, Yahoo! Finance and PEOPLE, among many others. In this episode she talks about managing energy levels, working on your own strengths within the team and managing communication during COVID and beyond. She also touches on the right speed for scaling up your company. Listen to more Subject Matter podcasts at https://bit.ly/3I6GbBf
