I am finally jumping on the fall bandwagon. Bring it on. One of the things I am looking forward to is taking all the fitness classes that have been on my must try list forever! I am in a bit of a frustrating gym situation. My gym is just far enough from my current apartment that it takes a little planning ahead to make it happen. Before it was two blocks away, so I never had to think about bringing gym clothes to work or work clothes to the gym for that matter. I also have to leave considerably more time to get to and from the gym.
This situation makes small studio classes all the more tempting. While I could take classes at the gym, I rarely do. I think signing up in advance for the studio classes really keeps me committed. That’s why I am always looking for a good deal to make classes outside of my gym membership more affordable.
Here are some of the classes I plan to try over the next month or so!
This class is 45 minutes of cardio combined with 45 minutes of yoga or 30 and 30 for the express version. I love this concept because I almost always opt for cardio over yoga, but I know I really need both. Done and done. I am actually trying this next week and I am already super excited. Plus, it has Laura’s endorsement.
Deal: Class packs are the way to go at Uplift. They save you money per class and the 5-pack options allows you to try a variety of classes without a major commitment. 30 Minute Classes are $18 a class or 5 for $85. 60 Minute classes are $32 a class or 5 for $150.
Another combo class! This is a suspension based class promises to get your heart rate up while providing a total body strength workout. I like that they offer 40 and 55 minute versions too. (photo: wellandgood.com)
Deal: New client special offers 3 classes for $33!
I’m not new to Crossfit, but I’ve never tried it in Manhattan. I definitely want to check out my local box (26th between Broadway and 6th) and see how it compares to other boxes I’ve tried. I bet this location takes advantage of Madison Square Park!
Since I’ve been on a hiatus from running, my love of spinning has returned with vigor. I can’t wait to try this new studio and spin my booty off. While I love classic spinning, I am very intrigued by their Barre Ride class as well.
I am embarrassed that I haven’t tried this class yet! It’s like the dance version of a barre class. The Tracy Anderson workout for non-celebs, if you will. 45 minutes of dance cardio with 10 minutes of arm and ab work. Perfect. Sam has a great review .
Deal: First time client offer: 4 classes for $100–savings $40.
Whew, these should bust any workout rut I may or may not be in!
