Fitness Fads

I’ll be in DC for ten weeks this summer (May 2017 to August 2017), and I plan to try out lots of different fitness classes. I’ve decided to add a tab on my blog for the summer with fitness class reviews. I’ll run through the fitness class I tried that day, breaking down the whole hour, and provide tips for you if it’s your first time. That way, you won’t waste precious workout time trying to figure out the moves the first time!

Trying a new fitness class can be intimidating. When you have no idea what to expect, of course you’re worried you might not be able to do it, that you’ll be singled out, that you’ll spend a bunch of money on a class where you don’t feel a thing.

But I’m here to keep these classes from being intimidating!!!!!!! I’ll take you step by step so that you can have the confidence to give them a try! I’ll also give you an honest breakdown of how many calories I burned and whether I actually thought the class was worth it.

As you can read in older posts, I LOVE Pure Barre. But I wouldn’t have tried it had it not been for the countless fitness advice blogs I read, the people who encouraged me over and over again to give it a try, and the welcoming atmosphere Pure Barre provides for first-time clients. Not every fitness class is like this, and as I branch out, I want to be an aid to other people thinking about certain classes.

I’m taking a leap of faith, not letting myself be intimidated by different fitness fads and instead embracing them as an opportunity to challenge me and to help others. So join me! Check out my thoughts as I attend different classes between May 15 to July 23rd.

Here’s my list of classes I’ll try, but let me know if you think I should add something or reconsider any of the ones currently on the list.
