Flywheel

Flywheel

Ok friends, I know I’ve been SERIOUSLY slacking on studio reviews. Somewhere between working five jobs, two of which are at fitness studios, it’s hard to make it to new classes. I do have one class per month on Classpass, though (gone are my days […]

SoulCycle

SoulCycle

SoulCycle. It’s a workout, a lifestyle, a brand, and a mental state. #Ad Just kidding. But seriously, this class is a workout, a stress reliever, and a pep talk all in one. I’m not even a huge fan of spin classes, and I love it […]

Warrior Bridge Yoga

Warrior Bridge Yoga

While living in DC, I took many Rocket Yoga classes. Contrary to what you might think, rocket yoga isn’t yoga on another planet; it’s a subset of ashtanga yoga that’s a bit less rigid and more playful–think lots of arm balances and inversions. Upon moving […]

Classpass Month in Review: April/May

Classpass Month in Review: April/May

After freezing Classpass to do the intro month at Pure Barre, I returned to the platform (the Classpass kind, not the Pure Barre kind) in mid-April for some more variety. This month was significant in that it’s the first month where Classpass limited me to […]

Box + Flow

Box + Flow

In a world with only ten ClassPass classes per month, it’s hard to convince myself to try a new type of workout, even if it’s something I might like. After all, there are over 1,000 studios on ClassPass in NYC, many of which I know I like. But […]

Flybarre

Flybarre

I’ve been taking Flybarre classes since I lived in the DC area, when I followed a couple of teachers from a small studio to the noted chain. Flybarre is a more athletic approach to barre than some competitiors, likely because it’s meant to complement their […]

Pure Barre Platform

Pure Barre Platform

As you know from reading my blog, I froze my Classpass account for the past month to do the new client special at Pure Barre NYC. I’m well-seasoned in barre and Pure Barre specifically, but I hadn’t had a change to try their cardio offering, Pure […]
