Studio Visits 2016

I’m definitely a creature of habit. I know which instructors I like, which times fit best in my schedule, and which studios I prefer. But even before I started working at ClassPass, I’d made it my personal mission to try a bunch of new studios and instructors this year. Once I realized running was out… Continue reading Studio Visits 2016

My Go-To Studios

I’m a creature of habit. I order the same coffee, could eat Special K for breakfast every day for the rest of my life, and workout at the same studios. Sometimes I’ll force myself to step outside my comfort zone, especially with my workouts, and this year it was particularly gratifying because I’ve now got a… Continue reading My Go-To Studios

My Morning Routine

I was never a morning person growing up. Just ask my parents. They’d have to turn on all my lights, pull off my blankets, and sing obnoxiously for me to even contemplate getting out of bed. These days I’m a loud and proud early riser (and most of my friends think I’m insane). It took some work… Continue reading My Morning Routine

Progress, Not Perfection

I keep a post-it note stuck to my mirror. Another one at my desk. There are three words on it: Progress, not perfection. A wise friend said that to me a few months ago, when I was in the early stages of recovery and struggling to accept the new limits thrown at me after only just… Continue reading Progress, Not Perfection

Sweat It Out: FlyBarre

Groundbreaking news: cardio is not the be all, end all. I know, I know — coming from a cardio whore, this sounds blasphemous. I love spinning. I love running. But I’m still not allowed to run, and my PT needs me to continue strengthening my core. I figured what better way to do that than… Continue reading Sweat It Out: FlyBarre

Sweat It Out: ClassPass

I’m a girl who loves a good deal. Especially when it comes to boutique fitness, which can be notoriously expensive in NYC. I recently had a chance to try ClassPass, and it definitely falls under the ‘good deal’ category if you’re someone who works out more than once a week. For $125 a month, you… Continue reading Sweat It Out: ClassPass

Sweat It Out: Row House

It’s been a while since I’ve frequented a rowing class, though not for lack of wanting to! I last hit up CityRow in Union Square (which also has a studio opening on the UES!), but this week I decided to give Row House a shot. They have three locations — Columbus Circle, UES, and Chelsea — so pretty… Continue reading Sweat It Out: Row House
