– Why this new FlyWheel cycling studio in Playa Vista is so FLY –

Incorporating indoor cycling into my regimen has really amped up my workout game. Not only am I increasing my endurance but spinning is joint-friendly and perfect for all ages. FlyWheel has really created a new type of workout that allows every rider, regardless of level, to bring out the best in themselves. They incorporate performance tracking technology in an immersive, interactive, and music-driven indoor cycling experience that makes it fabulous, fit, and fun! I always grab my friends to spin at FlyWheel and experience the wonders of group fitness together.

The new Playa Vista location opened up last year and is in a prime location. After a big sweat grab a green juice at the Whole Foods next door, brunch it up with a gourmet burger at Hopdoddy or a poke bowl at Da Kikokiko, a cup of joe at Starbucks, or just walk around the hip outdoor center. Tip: There’s an awesome Farmers Market happenin’ on Saturday mornings and they set up right up in front of FlyWheel!

Sweat Yoga studio in Santa Monica

Sweat Yoga studio in Santa Monica | itsjoulife.com

My mat and me time. The sweat will be dripping, the inner peace building, the music capturing the soul. Hot yoga at Sweat Yoga studio in Santa Monica isn’t just a powerful and purposeful workout, it’s a rejuvenation of the mind, body, and soul. I call it my morning therapy.

I’ve been consistently coming to Sweat Yoga in the early AM for the past several months and have seen a difference in toning my body, strength, calming my mind, and setting up my workday. Hot yoga strengthens, balances and detoxifies my entire body and mind as I move through challenging postures and connected breath. Turn stress = sweat.

Here are my Sweat Yoga studio highlights:

  • Come early, morning and evening classes are always crowded. The instructors always start out with an enjoyable and relatable story; is friendly, encouraging and sometimes hands on; has a calming voice that doesn’t lull me to sleep; and plays an eclectic mix of awesome music beats (think The Weeknd’s “Often” and Sylvan Esso’s “Coffee”). Fave instructors are: Paige Yeaton, Zoe Welch, and Brittny McCarthy.
  • Class format is engaging and creative: typically learn movements in a vinyasa flow, go through it guided by the instructor a few times, and then at your own pace, continue through a few more rounds. There is room for creativity as the environment is encouraging of exploring new moves and positions.

$30 off ClassPass // bargain + fitness

CPAs a long time fitness fiend, spending time training for marathons and even owning memberships at two gyms, I finally found my groove in a consistent workout routine. All thanks to ClassPass.

I LOVE ClassPass. It’s a new kind of fitness membership that lets you enjoy diverse and exciting ways to work out. It’s a brilliant business model and suits my interests because I like variety and trying out new things. I’ve been doing hot yoga, spinning, circuit training, ballet barre, stand up paddle boarding and been meaning to try boxing and surfing.

Each workout is a good sweat leaving me recharged and refreshed. It’s challenging and I’ve learned to push myself physically and mentally. I’m stronger, more toned, built endurance and always leave feeling I can conquer the day. I recently ran a half marathon in hilly San Francisco and set my personal record (!) and I owe it all to spinning and the motivational energy of my favorite instructor, Rene. During that race I just kept pushing myself. My lungs burned and legs were tired, but I knew I had it in me.

I can’t stop talking about it to friends. CP doesn’t have promo offers often, but I just came across a $20 off your first month of unlimited group fitness classes. Note: I pay $119/month and max three classes at each studio. This is an awesome deal because sometimes a month membership at a fancy gym or studio runs $120+/month. This way I can jump around and get diversity and cross train at various studios in different cities.

Day 2 // Get Sleek Arms Anywhere | Birchbox Challenge

Kick off 2015 on the right foot! Want toned biceps, triceps and shoulders but don’t have any weights? Channel your inner boxer with this series of quick movements (jab! hook!) to make them strong and defined. Last night I got home late from work and thought about skipping my workout. I’m glad I didn’t. I haven’t gone cardio kickboxing in ages, but came across this easy Sleek Arms Anywhere workout for the Birchbox Challenge, Day 2. It’s perfect for the busy individual. Recently my quick workout has been a 1-mile sprint, some arm-toning moves and 1 to 2 sets of the 10-minute workout (see the last video link below).

Another favorite workout of mine is a full-body, high intensity training, 10-minute workout that doesn’t require equipment. C’mon, you can find 10 minutes of your day to try this! You won’t regret it.
