Can you believe it?
I’ve taken 50 classes since joining Classpass in December 2015. Last night’s Joltin Jabs was the cherry on top of my fitness sundae.
I never considered myself a group fitness person. I’m pretty uncoordinated and don’t enjoy chatting while I workout, so I usually stuck to my usual recipe of intense, long cardio, minimal weights and core work, and a weekly yoga class. I switched it up sometimes to include spinning or swimming, depending on what Living Social deal I could snag. That changed when I joined Unite Fitness 2+ years ago. I found I enjoyed strength training as long as someone was there telling me what to do and I had fun alternating between the treadmill, bike, and rower. Unfortunately, the price of Unite wasn’t sustainable to me, so I ended up leaving after a year to try and do it on my own.
Spoiler alert: it didn’t work for me. I fell off the strength wagon and was becoming increasingly unhappy with my body, noticing how things that used to be high and tight were…not.
Several of my friends used Classpass and suggested I give it a shot. It’s been 6ish months and I have no intention of quitting anytime soon!
I love being able to switch up my workouts anytime I want as well as try new studios in the area without committing to a hefty drop-in price tag. Some classes have been better than others, but overall, I’m so happy that I have changed my routine.
Here are some Philly “Best Ofs” for anyone interested in trying it out:
Dwayne’s Body Blast Class at Optimal 1315
Priya Hot Yoga (especially any of Ashley’s classes)
Jess’s classes at Body Cycle
Row Zone (Gary and Jason are my faves)
Flywheel (when you can get in!)
My goal this month is to try at least two new studios…any suggestions?
