In early June of 2015, I joined the revolution that is ClassPass.
A little bit of history. I have always been at least somewhat active in my teenage to adult life. “Somewhat active” could be defined as different things at different stages of my life. In college, when I had all the time in the world, I’d go to the gym daily, although it usually consisted of me listening to music on the Elliptical Machine and watching frat boys lift weights. Immediately after moving back to NYC, I’d say my activity level dropped. I spent less time running on a treadmill and more time running from bar to bar, exploring my new post-graduate life and this thing called “having money to spend.” When my clothes got a little too tight for comfort in the winter of 2014, I knew it was time for a change.
I began following the blog Tone It Up and really dove in headfirst for their annual Bikini Series, an 8-week program leading up to summer to get “bikini ready.” It wasn’t a diet plan. It was a healthy living plan, with filling and nutritious recipes and an easy to follow workout schedule for the 8-weeks. Overall – it changed how I felt about myself, about food, and about exercise. Now, it’s something I want to be doing, not something I feel like I should be doing.
And so here I am, starting a fitness blog. More for my own benefit, but if you do find yourself reading this, I hope you can take something away from it. I want to explore all the health and fitness options this big city has to offer, and ClassPass seemed the perfect outlet to do that. So I’m about to hit the ground running in my new Nikes and see where I end up. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
