Hey all! Hope you had great Labor Day Weekend! Now that the summer is officially over (I’m hoping the warm weather will last a bit longer), I’m ready to get back into a fitness routine. Two weeks ago I tried out FlyBarre for the first time, using a credit I had from my SELF Up N Out Studio weekend!

I had taken barre classes a lot during the winter of my senior year, so this workout wasn’t completely new to me, but it had definitely been awhile! Lots of core work and tucking had me feeling very shaky by the end of class. I had an awesome instructor Hannah, who welcomed me and made sure any questions I had prior to class were answered. Hannah also made it a point to walk around during class and correct everyones form, which is sometimes lacking in a fitness class but extremely important.

I think FlyBarre would perfectly compliment classes at Soul Cycle and normal gym workouts. I can’t wait to try to incorporate that into my routine.

What other workouts should I try next?!




Feeling SOULful

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen how much I’ve been loving Soul Cycle lately. Since I’ve moved to the city, I’ve still been trying to figure out how to spend my extra time and getting used to doing more things on my own. Something that I always look forward to is booking my Soul Cycle classes. Not only is it a great workout, but its 45 minutes where I can just focus on me and not worry about anything else that is going on in my life.

Last night I took a class and had the biggest smile on my face from the moment I sat on the bike. I’ve been a little stressed lately, and I felt so great after leaving class. When I’m picking up my pace and staying with the beat, I can’t help but feel a sense of accomplishment. I can even see myself improving from when I started back in April, and a few weeks ago I even survived a class in the front row! Budget permitting, I’m really hoping I can make it to a class at least once a week. In my book, it’s totally worth it. 🙂
