Every time I worked out last week (2/15 -2/21)

Oh, hey.  How is your week going?

When we left off, I was sick in LA.   Now it’s time for this week’s workout recap.

Monday: The fog finally lifted (I am referring to my sickness, LA was 80 and sunny the whole time). The gang went on a 7-mile hike in Griffith Park. It was hot and lovely.

Every time I worked out last week (1/10-1/16)

Helloooo! My week-in-review posts have turned into “Here is what I like and don’t like on ClassPass.” I am getting a ton out of the membership. I joined once before in 2014 and thought the service was so/so and cancelled after a month. I wrote about that here. But this time around I’m finding spots in classes I want and I’m having a blast spicing up my workout (and saving dinero). If you’re not using ClassPass, I really recommend it.  Sign up using this link and save $20 on your first month!

Crossfit Solace: Love at first class

I tried a new studio last week, and I liked the class I took so much I signed up for the same class the following week on my phone on my way home.

Meet Crossfit Solace, she’s a unique beast.

Basically it’s an amenity-laden, very clean Crossfit studio that also offers yoga and sculpting classes. It breaks the Crossfit mold by attracting mostly ladies. Solace isn’t in a windowless basement like many Crossfit boxes, not does it smell like the inside of a old shoe. It’s also in Murray Hill so please infer the usual stereotypes.  It’s been on my list to try for a while because I like nice things.

An Epic Review

Around Christmas I bought a 5-class pack to Epic Hybrid Training on Amazon Local. My ankle was still pretty bad, but at $10 a class with six months to use it, it seemed worth it. Matt bought one too. It sounded like a nice thing to do together. (Spoiler alert: we’ve only gone together once.)

So what is Epic Hybrid Training? It’s a studio with two NY locations that’s set up to prepare students to kick ass at Spartan Races. (You know those races where warrior-like humans crawl under barbed wire and through mud?)

Not this kind of Spartan:
