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.

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.

7 reasons I love Physique57

I’ve written many times on this blog that Physique57  is one of my favorite studios. I’ve let two guys review the studio and I’ve written about Physique’s special arms/abs only modified class (which was a beacon of light during the rock bottom stage of my ankle injury).

But I’ve never given you the down and dirty on why and how I’ve fallen hard for this particular barre workout, until now.

How do I love Physique57?  Let me count the ways: View Post

Gramercy Pilates NYC! (Hi new friend!)

If you’ve been reading Cuckoolemon for a while now, you know my fitness palate is pretty “basic bitch.” I frequent the same studios everyone else likes, and they are all chains. But I’m happy to report thanks to ClassPass, I’ve made some new friends. Come meet my pretty new pal: Gramercy Pilates NYC.

Every time I worked out the last TWO weeks

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and this year was no slouch.

I never got around to posting last week’s recap, so now I’m doubling up (which is also the theme of some of my workouts) and sharing the last two weeks’ recap in one post.
