group exercise

Hello from sunny, southern California! I flew in for the weekend to shoot a couple videos for two different clients and am taking full advantage. After landing around 11am, I checked into my hotel and made it to SoulCyle in Santa Monica for a 1pm class with Alba. I was looking for a cross training […]

If you said to yourself, “I thought of that idea!” when ClassPass came to town, you were not alone. With the city’s surging boutique group exercise scene, many fitness junkies were looking for memberships that allowed them to visit different studios under one plan. ClassPass, formerly Classtivity, was providing a similar experience to New Yorkers […]

I first heard about Orange Theory in Southern California. After doing a little research, I discovered they were rapidly expanding across the country with over 250 locations! This group interval training class incorporates both treadmills and indoor rowing machines with strength training exercises all while wearing heart rate monitors that display your heart rate and […]

On Sunday, I drove out to the ‘burbs to take part in SoulCycle’s opening weekend festivities by taking a class. Aside from balloons and a few samples from SuperCandy at the checkin counter (that disappeared quickly), there was nothing extra special going on. Check in was chaotic even 15 minutes before class began so I […]

Last week, I headed down to NYC for what was supposed to be a Thursday shoot. Yes, New England was scheduled to be hit with a snow storm but I didn’t think it would affect my plans. En route, I was notified that my return train was cancelled before the first snowflake even dropped. After […]

I love when new fitness studios open in Boston! Recycle Studio has expanded to a second location on Boston Common (the first block of Newbury). I took Rebuild Ride this morning for the inaugural 9 am class that combines 30 minutes of cycling with 30 minutes of abs and arm strength training. I signed up […]

I continued my tour of sweat in California at The Sweat Shoppe. A small cycling studio in North Hollywood that is the only studio in US to purposely not air condition the room where spinning class is going on. It averages out to be around 82F. Why would one want to take such a class […]

I finally tried Barry’s Bootcamp! I was nervous and excited but as suspected, I loved it! The concept of Barry’s Bootcamp is 30 minutes on the treadmill and 30 minutes of strength training. I wasn’t sure how it was broken up until I got in the class. Each day is dedicated to different body parts […]

I woke up Friday morning at 5 am with pain in my right hip from being too tight. I knew I had to take a break from Bar and get in some yoga. At Bar, they say my hips are tight because I’m a runner but I haven’t really run farther than 1-2 miles in […]
