UPDATE: [Solidcore] informed me that their machines are not megaformers but patented  [solidcore] machines. (But they do look very similar to megaformers, if that’s what you’re familiar with!) I visited their website to get the 411 on these pretty ladies.

Michelle Obama’s Arms (all caps because they’re a proper noun in my heart) are enviable. I remember reading that was was a regular at a DC-based studio called [solidcore] and my interest was piqued. [Solidcore] has studio locations in Philly, the DC area and Atlanta.

I tried to take a class on my many work trips to the nation’s capital, but as luck would have it, the studio was always booked. I was in Philadelphia for work Thursday to Saturday last week before heading to DC for a Saturday night wedding and found myself with a little time before my train. [Solidcore] has a studio in Center City, Philly and I snagged one of the few remaining spots in a morning class. (You know something is going to be good when its nearly booked solid at 8:30am on a weekend.)

Hello! How is your week going? Last week for me was largely about taking it easy so I didn’t head to the Cherry Blossom 10 miler sore. Here’s what went down.

Monday: Didn’t work out.

Tuesday: Didn’t work out. (Cut me some slack, the week before was pretty intense.)

Hellooooo, March!

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.

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:

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!
