Tabata Circuit Workout + Class Review

Hey there!

When I walked into my latest ClassPass class and heard that we would be doing a tabata circuit workout, I immediately knew I was in for an intense workout and would be exhausted at the end (Not a bad thing the day before Thanksgiving!). Tabata is a High Intensity Interval Training (H.I.I.T.) workout that is structured with 20 second intervals of intense effort on one exercise followed by 10 seconds of recovery for 8 rounds. For this class, we paired two exercises together and rotated between them to make a tabata circuit workout. Talk about intense! (If you’re interested in more information on how ClassPass works, check out my review here.)

TRX + Kettle Bell Workout & Class Review

Hey there!

If you’re anything like me, you’re a little hesitant to check out some of the trendy fitness classes that keep popping up because you don’t want to show up and end up looking silly because you have no idea how to do any of the moves. I always worry that the classes are going to be full of a bunch of jacked up guys that can do the workouts in their sleep and that I will be the only newbie in the class and stick out like a sore thumb. I’ve honestly never had this problem, so I’m not sure where this irrational fear comes from, but I’m working on squashing it for good!

10 Tips For A Successful Hot Yoga Practice

Hey there!

I got the chance to check out a hot yoga class for the first time in years last week, thanks to ClassPass and I wanted to share my experience with you in hopes that it will make checking it out for yourself a little less intimidating. I’ve always loved hot yoga and but stopped going a few years ago because memberships at hot yoga studios can be insanely expensive and I didn’t want to form a habit I couldn’t afford to keep up. When I realized there was a hot yoga studio in my area that participated in ClassPass, I did a little happy dance at my computer and reserved my spot in class immediately. (If you’re interested in more information on how ClassPass works, check out my review here.)
