Save for Monday (because I got in late from Miami Sunday night) I am back in morning workout mode this week. I wouldn’t say getting out of bed in the pre-dawn hours is easy, but it’s doable, so I’m doing it.
Here’s what went down:
Monday: Back to Peloton for a post-work spin class. The instructor played “Bug a Boo” by Destiny’s Child which is now the 2nd best musical moment of my fitness career. (I once heard Jai-Ho! at Physique 57 and so far nothing can surpass how much I smiled.) I was assigned a bike in the front row and eye contact with the instructor definitely made me work harder.
Every runner knows running can be a mind f*ck (pardon my French). I am not an expert runner, but I am a head case who has (for the most part) learned to love running without letting it make me crazy. That’s taken some mental work.
I read internet mumblings that I. AM. YOU. was an A-grade yoga studio. My zone of existence for fitness doesn’t extend to Little Italy, so I’d never been. I had plans to meet pal Tracey (creator of Kale with a Side of Fries) who lives downtown for a workout + dinner date and that was impetus enough for me to venture to Mulberry Street.
Let’s dig in because you’ll want to be prepared.
Happy Sunday night, party people! East coasters, how was your snowy weekend? Did you work out during #Snowzilla? Tell me everything! (Spoiler Alert: I did)
Once again, I crushed ClassPass last week. Here’s what I got into:

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.
