Okay, so I am cheating a little bit. This is technically not my first month with ClassPass. It is my second month, but my first month I was a little shall we say, lack luster with my class attendance. For those of you who do not know what ClassPass is, it is a service where you pay $100 a month for unlimited fitness classes (maximum 3 times a studio per month). It has a super amazing choice of classes and they are continuing to add new classes every month. ClassPass has everything from Core Power Yoga, Barry's Bootcamp, ballet and bare classes, crossfit, and it even has aerial and trapeze classes! Now, if you are aren't living in a big city, $100 may seem like a steep price to pay every month. And you would be correct! I am hanging in there as a C-List actress, I have lots of money one month and zero dollars the next. Therefore, it is a bit of commitment and gamble for me but when you live in Los Angeles it is a pretty fair price. Take for example, my favorite reformers pilates classes- the studio I would love to afford costs $100 for 6 classes a month. This body is not gonna stay fit taking one and a half classes a week. Los Angeles is full of ridiculously attractive and fit humans and people pay a pretty penny to keep up their bods. My point here, while $100 is a bit steep for my penny pincher ways, it is worth it considering you have unlimited classes and some of the best studios in LA. Plus, working out here is more like a social event. I have had just as many "yoga" girlfriend dates as I have let's go out for happy hour dates. And the very best is when you can combine the two and go for yoga and then go for a margarita. The two totally cancel each other out, right?
Now on to the challenge. I decided for the month of May I would work out every day and cut out wine completely. Just kidding, I could never cut out wine completely. But my challenge IS to use my classpass at least 6 times a week. Now, life gets busy occationally so working out 6 times a week is not gonna be easy. But challenges are challenging for a reason! I am also going to try to take classes that I wouldn't normally gravitate towards, such as cycling (awful) or Barry's Bootcamp (death). I tend to gravitate to the barre and pilates classes but again, this is a challenge!
Every day...or...every other day...I plan to journal about my experiences. How I liked the studio, teacher, work out. This is completely my individual opinion and no one is paying me to say good stuff (but, I am open to that). I feel like this journal will keep my accountable for my actions and actually make me get my lazy popcorn eating butt off the couch and get my $100 a month worth.
Tomorrow, April 27th I begin my 30 day workout challenge. Let the sweating commence.
