I’m Keeping ClassPass

It’s been a little over a week since news of ClassPass’ decision to increase their unlimited membership from $125/mo to $190/mo popped up for members in New York City. I, along many other members, took to social to post about our frustrations and anger towards the company. In fact, I even wrote an email to the company (something Read More

I’ve completed 50 classes on ClassPass!

I’ve attended 50 classes on ClassPass! I ditched my yoga membership and joined ClassPass in November and four months later I can say that I’ve reached the halfway mark to 100 classes.

First Boxing Class at Gotham Gym

Gotham Gym is famous for it’s clients — ranging from Hugh Jackman to the entire line up of Victoria’s Secret Angels. And while I initially though it was out-of-my-leaugue, little did I know how close it was to my office and easy it was to book a class. I’ve always wanted to try boxing but the intimidation Read More

The Fit Girl’s Essentials: Pointe Studio’s Grip Socks

Since joining ClassPass and having the opportunity to try fitness classes other than yoga, I quickly learned that it wasn’t all just about yoga pants & mats. Barre classes and (most) Pilates classes require students to wear grip socks. Not only does this help with hygiene around the studio and in class, the grip socks help Read More

Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016!
