Class Review: Metabolic Burn at Body Space Fitness

It’s been a while since I’ve tried a new class that I really liked. In fact, I’m pausing my ClassPass membership at the moment because I just want to go to the studios I know and love for a while. But before ClassPass and I went on a break, I signed up for Metabolic Burn at Body Space Fitness.

Body Space Fitness is located on 14 Street between 5th and 6th avenues. It’s near a bunch of subway lines and it’s also in the same building as Flex Studios.

All the workouts: 4/23- 4/30

Long time no post! I had a busy week but I’m happy to be back here on the inter webs saying hello. We had such a nice taste of sweaty summer last weekend and I loved it. Did you get outside?

Also, pro tip! Barry’s Bootcamp is raising prices on their smaller class packages (the 5-class pack) and single classes TODAY. Bigger packs stay the same price, but if you like to purchase one at a time, grab one today.

Here’s my week in workouts. Don’t forget to share yours in the comments!

Monday: REST. My hip still hurt.

All the workouts: Nice to meet you, Morningside Park

Hi friends! How is your week going? You look so nice today!

I spent so much of last week feeling so sore. I went to Barry’s 2x and the Fhitting Room once but I think it was the physical therapy session at Finish Line that really did me in. I guess I haven’t done a squat in years.

You guys know I’m a fan of the nutrition blog Summer Tomato. I stumbled upon this older post on breaking your good habits called, “The I Just Don’t Feel Like It” Fallacy. In it, Darya talks about thinking through the real reason you’re breaking a habit that’s helped you meet a goal in the past. She just gets me.

One of my favorite running bloggers, the Great Britain-based Charlotte, ran the Boston Marathon last weekend. Her recap is sure to make you smile, so I wanted to share it.

In less impressive athletic endeavors, here’s last week’s workout rundown:

All the workouts: Trying new classes + Western States love

Hi ladies and gents. If you’re observing Passover, first good luck! Second, check out these healthy recipes that are all Passover-friendly.

Last week was all about not running so damn much now that the Cherry Blossom race is over. So instead of running, I watched a documentary about an ultra-marathon and felt totally inspired. (Video at the bottom of this post!)

Here’s what went down last week:
