Try It: Pole Dancing and Stretch Classes!

Having a day off from work to be able to try new things is amazing! Now that it’s two weeks in a row of Try It: Fitness, Sunday is definitely my fun day.

Today I was off to Flying High Aerial Arts Studio to try my hand at pole dancing! And for good measure, add in a spilts class and a back & shoulders class. Because why just do one when you can do 3? Especially since two of the classes work on flexibility, something that I personally need to work on more. I have tried pole dancing once before about a year ago at another studio at another trial class, but never classes based on stretching and flexibility, so I was super keen to give those classes a go.

Try It: My First Parkour and Handstand Classes

Needless to say, I had a bit of a busy Sunday!

I seem to be on a bit of a roll with finding free classes right now during my free time, so who was I to turn down another great opportunity! Another find over Facebook, I was especially excited since this class being put on by Class Pass was being offered at a gym I’ve been eyeing for months since another trainer mentioned them to me, called Movement Co.

Offering classes in strength and conditioning, parkour, calisthenics, gymnastics and climbing, I couldn’t wait to try something completely out of my comfort zone!

How To Become a Morning Person

Ever since getting back from my trip from Canada, I’ve been working to get myself on a more consistent schedule. No more late nights, and getting up every day at about the same time, Unfortunately, as a Personal Trainer, this new wake up time is now 5am, so I can comfortably be teaching clients and classes at 6am. I’ve never really thought of myself as a morning person (I think 8am is a wonderful time to get up!) but I am slowly adjusting to this new schedule and being surprisingly more productive! I feel like I’ve gain an extra 3 hours in my day! What a difference! Continue reading “How To Become a Morning Person”
