ClassPass – Month One

With my upcoming wedding and getting bored of my past workout routine I knew it was time to change it up. I love being active and going to the gym but the last few months ago the gym started to feel like a chore. Once it started to feel like that, I knew it was time to find something new. Last month I finally signed up for ClassPass after hearing rave reviews from my friend, Corinne. It was the best decision I made for my health and fitness routine.

ClassPass offers two different plans, 5 classes/month for $50 or unlimited for $90. Right now I’m on the 5 classes/month plan, when I get closer to the wedding I’ll upgrade to the unlimited plan.

Most fitness studios in Houston are on ClassPass so if you want to try spin, pilates, CrossFit or barre you are able to for a low price. For example, a class at most spin studios will cost around $20-25, so if you are able to go to 2 in that month, your ClassPass paid for itself.

During my first month I attended the following classes:

Hot Core Weights
Yoga One Bellaire
Thoughts on the class:
It was a butt kicker! It incorporated strength training, yoga and cardio so it kept my body guessing the entire time. I was SUPER sweaty when I left
Would I take this class again?:

Pilates Reformer
1st Class Training
Thoughts on the class:
I took a pilates reformer class a few years ago and I really liked it. I was excited to see that I could take a reformer class using ClassPass. I left feeling very long and lean.
Would I take this class again?
Yes! Next time I plan on increasing my resistance because I’m a lot stronger than I thought.

Thoughts on the class:
It was sooooo hard, but the good kind of hard. I felt no stress and had total clarity once class was over. The instructor pushes you to limits you didn’t know you could reach. At the end of class, they hand out chilled towels infused with eucalyptus oil. #bonus
Would I take this class again?
YES! I already went back this month.

Cardio Barre! Booty Barre
The Good Space
Thoughts on the class:
Umm….this class was ok. I’ve taken barre classes before so I knew was to expect but I wasn’t overly impressed with their version.
Would I take this class again?
The Good Space does offer other classes which I want to try but I would go somewhere else for barre.

Define Revolution
Thoughts on the class:
At the time I thought the class was pretty easy but I think it was because I didn’t push myself as hard. I was having an off day, couldn’t find the beat as easily as I normally do and wasn’t in the right mindset. The next day I was pretty sore, so it was effective.
Would I take this class again?
It wouldn’t be my first choice in a spin studio but I would go back to it. Like I said, it could have been more me than them.

As you can see, I tried to take a variety of classes to switch up my workouts. I still workout at home using 21 Day Fix or Tone It Up but at least once a week I need structure. If you want to know more about ClassPass feel free to comment below or tweet me (@BalsamoHeather) I would love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by!

XO, Heather
