Since I’ve started ClassPass I’ve been hitting up a lot of the same spots: barre3, Ryde (you can read my review on that here) and some yoga. While I love my staple spaces, I have been really jones’in to get back to my lax days and get my butt kicked with some interval style workouts. You know, burpess, ropes, weights, flinging a keg over a bar. The norm. I found a few spaces near me in Arlington but was hesitant to go since: 1) I haven’t done that kind of workout in awhile and 2) Even when I was in my college prime…I was pretty bad at them. Sorry coach! All the classes I was looking at were about an hour long and I just envisioned myself sucking wind and then having to have someone put wind into me in the form of CPR when I passed out. I finally found one where one of the reviews said “for all fitness levels” and just booked it. Go me! I dragged my friend, Robbie, along with …

Ryde by Revolve– Clarendon

I have been wanting to try ClassPass for probably 2 years. I loved watching my favorite fitness Instagramers get to try all different types of workouts on a “budget”. Classes including surfing, trampoline, aqua-biking and paddle-board yoga had me ready to jump on the CP wagon. Unfortunately, when I went to check out D.C’s ClassPass offerings, I was slightly disappointed, being met with a majority of barre and pilates studios (which I wasn’t a huge fan of). Now, I’m an older, more open minded, not cardio-centric, Sunnie and I’m ready to tackle every barre, pilates, spinning, pole dancing, karate, boxing studio in Arlington and DC! Ok, maybe not all of them, but a lot of them! If you are interested in trying ClassPass, you can use my link here to get $40 off! (Not sponsored. Just some free $$!) I chose Ryde by Revolve as my first ClassPass…class because I love spinning. I love the darkness, the music and the I-just-ran-to-grab-the-last-slice-of-pizza out of breath-ness spinning gives me and this ride was no exception. Located in Clarendon, …

Internet Friends (Creepiest Title Ever)

Social media is a crazy thing: it allows you to keep in touch with loved ones, keep in touch with “eh” ones, stalk people from high school, make friends, find out about events, and become a part of a community. I’ve shamelessly done all of these things (Don’t worry, you aren’t one of the “eh” ones… or are you!?) It sounds cheesy, but I really enjoy the community aspect of social media. I know…Ya gouda be kidding me. But I’m not! I have made more friends via Instagram and on this here blog than I could have ever imagined and this week, I got to hang out with a bunch of these wonderful people at 2 different events. I was amped on Saturday to get to share my love of Zengo cycling with a group of friends for a private ride at Cathedral Commons. My friends at Zengo hooked everyone up with some some awesome swag and Kendra Scott even provided a gorgeous piece of glitz for 1 lucky winner! We started our ride at 12 PM.  Our …

SweatBox DC: The Good, The Great and the Sweaty (Review)

Disclaimer- My arms (and entire body) are still noodles from this workout, so if this post ends in the middle of a sentence, I’ve probably just passed out. In case this happens, please contact Steven, or my mom. Thank you. As you know, I love trying out new fitness experiences ESPECIALLY ones that pop up in my home city of DC. Naturally, I was so excited when I got an Instagram message from @sweatboxDC to try a demo of the class before it’s grand opening on May 4th. After a few back and forth messages (thanks for being flexible with my schedule, Elise) I was set to get my sweat on Friday after work. My demo being on Friday meant I had an entire week of seeing photos/videos pop up on @sweatboxdc Instagram to totally pump me up… and scare the bejesus out of me. I’m a weak lady in the strength training field, so after seeing all of the Instagrams of very fit people doing lots of pushups, I was petrified*. *After strength training my entire college …
