Thanksgiving + BFX and Turnstyle “Reviews”

Last¬†week, we celebrated our first Thanksgiving as a family of 3. We spent the first part of our long weekend up in Maine and then came back to Boston on Friday. For the first time since I was probably in 8th grade, I did not go out the night before Thanksgiving. It’s usually my favorite […]

Studio Review: Studio Nantucket

On Tuesday, I left Tommy for the first time overnight. I cried when I left. I cried at the airport but as soon as I arrived on my favorite island, I was good. I missed the munchkin but I no more tears were shed. I flew to Nantucket from Hyannis for the Cercone Brown Company […]

Mommy and Me Workout at Healthworks Back Bay in Boston

I found another fitness class in Boston where you can bring your baby with you a couple weeks ago. Reader Erica told me about a class held at the Healthworks Back Bay location and it took me 4 months to finally make it! Using my ClassPass membership, I booked a spot for the Wednesday class […]

Studio Review: EveryBodyFights, Road + Triathlon Class

EveryBodyFights (EBF), formerly known as The Club by George Foreman III, is one of my favorite gyms on ClassPass but alas they do not have child care so I haven’t been in a while. Since the last time I went, they’ve expanded to Watertown and are opening another location in New York soon. I went […]

Studio Review: Bar Method Boston

The next Boston studio to be reviewed on my ClassPass tour is Bar Method. My long time readers might remember that, I was a member of Bar Method for over a year before I started teaching at Barry’s Bootcamp in the fall of 2013. I was always a runner and lifter but wanted to try […]

Class Review: Mom and Baby Barre Fusion Asana Charlestown

There is childcare at many gyms and studios these days but still very few Mommy and Me fitness classes in Boston right now. There are two that I have tried, one in Back Bay at Xtend Barre and one in Charlestown at Asana Charlestown with my friend Jenn Phelan (who is pregnant with #2). The […]

ClassPass Studio Review: BTone Fitness North End

I love the Lagree Method which is a style of Pilates performed on a Megaformer. The only place in Boston where you can do it is at Btone Fitness, which now has 5 studios in the area. I was a regular in Claudia’s class before getting pregnant and continued to go using my ClassPass during […]

ClassPass Studio Review: Recycle Studio South End

When I use ClassPass and go to new studios, I always write reviews but it recently came to my attention that I have never written them for some of my favorite spots in Boston including Recycle Studio. When they opened up their new location in the South End, it seemed like perfect timing to share […]

Spinning in the 3rd Trimester + Thoughts on SoulCycle Back Bay

Exercising during pregnancy hasn’t been nearly as dreadful as I imagined. I actually still love it – mainly because I’ve reduced the intensity and frequency. I’ve been enjoying going to as many classes as I can because I know I won’t be able to once the little guy arrives. I mostly am going to yoga […]

Xtend Barre Newbury Street Boston

I am always up for trying new classes. At 30 weeks pregnant, I am cautious but still game. When I saw on Instagram that Xtend Barre was coming to Boston, I knew I needed to give it a try. Opened up by Weston native, Amanda Cort this October, the studio offers a variety of classes […]
