BurnCycle is undeniably one of the trendiest fitness options in Portland. I had heard rave reviews from both Erin and Jane about the great instructors, fun music and amazing workout. I've only been to one spin class in my life at a small Montana gym and did not enjoy it. At all! So I decided the BurnCycle experience counted as a new challenge. I went during January when they offer a free class for new users and love-hated it. I found the seat rather ... erm.... painful, but also really loved the workout. The instructor, Steph, was really encouraging and everyone in the class was very nice. It was a fun and supportive space that I would certainly return to.
I already shared my thoughts on this spot a few weeks ago - but wanted to share that I have been going quite regularly through my FitMob membership.
Yes, that is Erin and me hanging upside down in slings. "Why" you ask? Because we decided to embrace life and try something new - Aerial Yoga to be precise. We took the intro class at A-Wol. There were certainly aspects and stretches that I really liked, and others that felt a bit off for my body. I also got pretty dizzy when upside-down.
As we enter into a new quarter I am excited for more new experiences!! I was thinking about finally tackling the 90-minutes at a bar alone without a cell phone. Maybe learn how to make a challenging baked good??
Would love to hear how your resolutions are going for 2015!
