It’s no secret, I like to workout but I’m just like everyone else and that means I too can get into a fitness rut!!
Over the last 5 years, exercising has become a habit for me. It’s non-negotiable for me. Even on those days, I am dragging I still get it done. Exercise had not only given me great physical benefits but I am happier, more confident, focused and efficient.
Today I am super sore from trying a TRX workout yesterday. Have you ever tried TRX? TRX is a full-body strength workout using your own body weight with suspension straps. It was a blast but my arms are feeling it today!
Typically I workout at home. I stream my workouts via Beachbody on Demand off Apple TV. I love these workouts . . . 21 Day Fix, Insanity, T25, P90X3, etc. I get my workouts done super early, I don’t have to rely on a class schedule or drive to a gym and I love that each day is different plus I have found over the years I like exercising alone. But recently I am in a fitness funk and searching for something more to keep myself challenged and engaged. Thus the TRX workout yesterday.
I decided to try out ClassPass. ClassPass is a great way to experience a wide variety of classes in your city at a reduced rate. I even had on my bucket list this fall to try out at least one new fitness class a week! There are literally hundreds of class options in the Los Angeles area that it’s almost overwhelming but also very cool and fun!
This month I have tried a pilates class inspired by the Lagree method which involves a mega-reformer, a cardio pilates style class, a spin class and the TRX class. These classes on average are $30.00+ for one class which is crazy!! With a ClassPass, it averages out to about $10.00 a class!
I am not sure I want to commit to one specific class or studio. I like the flexibility and fun of trying out a new class each week and not being locked into something. It’s fun to check out the latest fitness fads. And between taking a class a week I’ve added in a day or two of running back into the mix to really break out of my fitness funk.
My in-home workouts are still my favorite. I love the support and accountability I have with others doing the same workouts via a private online group. These workouts have made it possible for me to walk into any fitness classes with the confidence that I will get through the class even if it’s something totally new.
I believe we all need to get uncomfortable to really see change. I am just adding in a little bit more uncomfortableness to nudge me further along and getting me out of this fitness funk!
