This summer has been filled with lots of new and exciting health, wellness, and beauty related adventures. I’ve tried new makeup, added a few more weights to my fitness routine, and tried out a few new fitness classes to spice up my life. Over the past year I’ve worked out at a gym and taken a few dance and weight training classes to stay motivated. I started to feel a little stagnant and wanted to give myself a little boost in enthusiasm.
Then along came the Class Pass. This site has to be the most incredible thing a fitness person could ask for. You subscribe to a monthly package with points that allows you to try out different gyms and fitness classes. You can try as many new trendy classes as you want. There are tons of options. You can never get bored! From hot yoga and spinning to boot camp and boxing, you have a plethora of health and wellness fixings within a mileage radius at the touch of a button. You can learn more about that here.
The first-class thing that I tried was the Lagree Fitness Method. Quinlan of POPSUGAR says, “Lagree Fitness studios have infiltrated New York and Los Angeles and are now making their way to the rest of the country.” The Megaformer was created by Sebastien Lagree. It is a machine that allows you to tone your muscles and strengthen your body. I did myself the honor of not googling or researching anything and just jumping right in. I had no idea what to expect and I was alright with that.
I went to an hour-long class at PACE in Atlanta and was pleasantly surprised. The Megaformer reminded of the table from the chiropractor’s office and quite honestly, I felt realigned after I left. During the class, the instructor guides you through various slow movements that sculpt you from head to toe. It is not easy, but it does let you work muscle groups that may be harder to get to with other methods.
This is definitely something that I’d like to add to my regiment. I was so excited to find a workout that helped me to build up my core! I’m not the most flexible person in the world but felt a bit nimbler. I’ve even heard that megastars like Meghan Markle are really into this workout.
Next, I’ll be trying Zumba and Barry’s Boot Camp.
