I love group exercise classes. When I run, I like to go it alone but for every other physical activity I thrive on a group setting. I become more competitive and I push myself further than I would if I were to do it on my own. Even on my most unmotivated days, once I get into class I can’t not accept a challenge. For people who consider themselves “lazy” when it comes to working out, I always suggest classes for this reason.
My love affair with studio classes began with The Bar Method. I took class religiously for a year 4-5 times a week. I was paying $165 a month so I wanted my monies worth. Even when I was hungover, I would wake up Saturday mornings and get my butt to class because I signed up and didn’t want to get charged with a late cancel fee! I then got really tight hip flexors and bored but spent too much money at Bar to pay to go elsewhere. I dropped my membership and shortly after, I started teaching at Barry’s Bootcamp and then later Burn Fitness Studio.
As a group ex instructor, you get to take classes at the studios you teach at but I did miss indoor cycling and barre classes.
Many of you know I’m “running” the Nike Women’s Half Marathon with ClassPass in San Francisco in a few weeks. I put running in quotation marks because it will most likely be a 13.1 mile walk/jog event for me and my plus one. When I’m not running 20+ week pregnant, I’m supplementing my program with cross training that is easy on my joints like indoor cycling, Pilates and yoga. It helps keep me strong, injury free and from getting bored.
With a ClassPass membership, you pay $99 a month and can take as many classes as you want from their many, many studios in select cities. This makes it affordable to bounce around fancy studios. I can even take classes when I travel in other cities. The only small hitch is that you can only take 3 classes per studio a month. My favorite studios in Boston are all on it including Recycle Studio, Burn Fitness, BTone, Barry’s Bootcamp and more! Bar Method I should note is not. ClassPass has expanded beyond Boston as well now too, into the ‘burbs.
They are providing my readers with this awesome opportunity because I accepted their half marathon at 29 weeks pregnant challenge.
Your trial will start the day you sign up and will only transition into a regular membership unless you cancel it. You must request to cancel your membership at least one day before the end of your two week trial in order to avoid auto-renewal for the following month. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to ClassPass through the end of your current cycle.
