Fitness Friday 29

Picking up where I left off on some Fitness Friday progress! My new job has the corporate discounted ClassPass, so I have been trying out some studios in the Atlanta area! I have been sticking to barre and pilates classes (avoiding cardio) because I am still wearing a mask to class. I'm unfortunately in a minority on that around here, but I got my fist vaccine earlier this week! So I can hopefully start trying some cardio after I have the second one. So, in between trying out some studios, I have been keeping up with some video workouts as well. Since I skipped last month, I thought I would stray from sharing my weekly workout schedule. I'm instead going to share the video services I have been using and studios I have tried out so far!

Rumble TV- I did a week free trail and really enjoyed how they mix boxing and strength training.
Fit Atelier- My most frequented studio in Charlotte with my forever favorite class (taught by one of my bridesmaids), Ballet Fit Theory!
Blogilates- I love Cassey's shorter options (around 15-20 minutes) that still provide a good burn! You can find them on her website, YouTube, or her app, Body by Blogilates.
SweatNET- I've definitely been missing their popup workouts all over Charlotte, but I can still get some of the experience with streaming from their partner studios.
ClassPass Streaming- I have been enjoying seeing all of the options available to stream like Barry's, several barre 3 and Barre Code locations, as well as solidcore. Which I have been wanting to try in Atlanta, but isn't the most convenient location for me. There are even ballet classes you can stream from New York City!

In Studio:
Club Pilates- I had been meaning to try Club Pilates at one of the several locations in Charlotte, but thanks to my hip injury and COVID, it took until I moved to try one in Atlanta. It is a reformer studio and I tried the Balance class. The class was a little more stretching than I've seen on a reformer before, and some barre work. I haven't made it back yet, but I'm sure I will soon!
barre 3- I have tried one of their locations in Charlotte before, so I was excited to see there were a few to choose from in the Atlanta suburbs. I really like how they are a little different from other barre methods in that the movements are a little more based in yoga, and very grounded.
I Heart Pilates-  I tried an independent reformer studio in Roswell and really liked how they used the full variety of traditional pilates equipment. I have done more megaformer before, so it was nice to learn more of the traditional side of pilates.
SculptHouse- A megaformer pilates studio (and activewear boutique), and I have tried their Charlotte location before. So I had to try the original in Buckhead. I was so sore the next day, I will definitely be making my way back!

  1. A recent dinner favorite has been this sweet potato ground turkey skillet. It is pretty simple to make and a little different from having chicken all the time.
  2. Also with sweet potatoes, another great option I've made several times lately is a simpler version of this 1 pan chicken, sweet potato, and broccoli dinner.
  3. On the snack front, I keep on buying Luna Bar protein bars. I used to always have a stash of their classic bars while I was in college and I'm currently loving these chocolate-y protein filled versions.

Thanks for reading!
