As seen on the ClassPass Blog: It Can Be Done! How I Became a Morning Class Taker

Tonight I will take my 40th class through ClassPass, and I am just as excited as I was for the first! With the help of ClassPass, I challenged myself to a week of morning workouts. Read about my experiences on the ClassPass blog, also seen below:

It Can Be Done! How I Became a Morning Class Taker

“If there is anything that I dread the most, it’s my alarm! I’m so not a morning person – I typically get up at 8:30 a.m., and I’m out the door just 20 minutes later. I shower at night and eat my breakfast on the go just so I don’t have to sacrifice any sleep.  

But I always envied those fitness enthusiasts who were finished with their daily workout before they made it to the office. I thought, how awesome would it be to have the rest of the day to yourself?! So, with the help of ClassPass, I challenged myself to a week of morning workouts.

There is nothing like the feeling of a great sweat on Thanksgiving morning! I knew I was going to reach for two+ slices of pie and an extra heaping of sweet potato casserole, so why not make it guilt free? I’ve also been dying to try a class at Aura but 3rd street is always traffic central.

For Day 3 of my morning workouts, I decided to look for somewhere that was within walking distance. This was a great idea because I assumed it would take less time than driving (I was in for a rude awakening…and an accidental jogging sesh). I also wanted something that would get my heart rate higher than barre so spin was the perfect fit.

I’ve been so barre obsessed recently that when I stumbled upon the words “first class free” at Flywheel I immediately starting planning my schedule around FlyBarre. Then I realized that I’ve been living a relatively cardio free life recently, and that’s not good for anyone, so I put my big girl panties on and signed up for the 6:30 Flywheel. This was a big step because spin has always been one of my biggest fears. It’s full of die-hards with their own clip on shoes and butt-padded shorts. These things intimidate me.
