Fitness Class Challenge

After my pre-marathon injury scare, I discovered a new yoga studio in town. They had so many cool classes I'd never even heard of, and couldn't wait until after the marathon to try them out. Now that the race is over, I'm excited to give them a try!

My challenge is to try every class they have to offer in the next 3-4 weeks. My biggest challenge when it comes to anxiety is the fear of the unknown, and this spills over into something as silly as a fitness class. Will I look weird, will I know what I'm doing, will I look weird... I'm hoping that by making myself go to a variety of classes in a short time period, I will be forced to step out of my comfort zone, learn about some new classes that I may LOVE and may help me with my running/strength/flexibility/injury prevention, and I'll get the "unknown" out of the way so I'll be excited to go more frequently.

The classes:

  • Indo Row
  • Yoga Sculpt
  • BarreAmped Fire
  • Tabata Row
  • BarreAmped Bootcamp
  • Fusion Yoga
  • Shockwave Express
  • Row & Core
  • Power Vinyasa Yoga
  • BarreAmped
  • Power Row
  • Row X
  • Restorative Yoga
  • Shake & Flow
  • STOTT Pilates Athletic Conditioning
  • Hot Pilates
Whoa, that's way more classes than I was expecting. Maybe I'll shoot for 75% of them by Thanksgiving. Has anyone ever done rowing classes before? They sound terrifying!

That's quite a goal. I am trying some new classes as well, but am pretty limited thanks to my stupid foot.

So many choices!!

I'm usually scared to show up to new fitness classes, mainly because I think everyone will be OMG AWESOME and I will be dying in the corner. Luckily, this has never happened - fake it til you make it!
