As you may have heard, I started a new job last week. While I had a great first week, I’m still figuring out my new routine and wasn’t able to go to as many workout classes as I have in weeks past. But, I still had an amazing experience at two studios which I’ve been dying to share with you.

Sunday: After my last Corepower Yoga class, I decided to go back to the basics and try a beginner level class. I could not have made a better choice. While I knew all of the poses that the instructor called out, I was able to focus more on my technique rather than keeping up with the pace of the class. I learned so much in the short 60 minute class while still getting a good workout. Making simple adjustments to my poses made a huge difference and I was definitely feeling the benefits sore the next day.

Monday: I took my second Flybarre class on Monday at the Old Town studio. While I loved my experience the first time around, I’ve been saving my Classpass credits for Flywheel. Guys, this class was AMAZING. While we focussed a lot on ab and arm work, the seat and thigh sections were challenging and effective. Another fun aspect was the fact that we had a man in our class who appeared to be a regular. He looked like a former athlete and it was awesome seeing him struggle just as much as I was with the 3lb weight arm section. While I was definitely making some interesting faces during class and thought my butt might actually fall off at one point...the moment I got home I signed up for another class with the same instructor.

I also took another “Burn” class at the Barre Code and started my Saturday bright and early with an 8:30AM Flywheel class. With just a little over 6 months to go until the big day, I’m hoping to increase my workout routine to five classes a week. I’m also debating buying a bride-to-be package at a studio to keep myself motivated. I’d love to know your thoughts on these packages if you have any experience! Or, if you’re local let’s take a class together!

Hope you all have an amazing week!
