Yep, what started out as a one-month experiment has now quickly become a verb. My workout buddies and I “ClassPass” around town each week, testing different workouts, meeting with studio owners, spreading word about new places and making all kinds of fit friends in the process.
If you’re not familiar with ClassPass, I wrote about my initial experience with the service here. During our first round, Carolyn and I threw down the gauntlet for #30ClassesIn30Days, but now we’ve issued each other a much more sustainable challenge: hitting a handful of new (to us) studios each month.
Aside from one hiccup at a Saturday bootcamp where the class was overwhelmingly large and somewhat unruly, we’ve had nothing but excellent experiences across the board. Portland’s really stepped up to the plate when it comes to delivering quality sweat sessions.
Here are the latest and greatest from round two:
The Grinning Yogi: Warm yoga haven whose mission is to provide consistently accessible, affordable classes for all levels
Fulcrum Fitness: Bootcamp and personal training gym featuring a mix of exercises that work different body systems
Hot Yoga for Life: Fusion of sweat and serenity, this place promises to strengthen your body and leave your spirit softened
Vibrant Studios: Lively community of movement classes, workshops, musical concerts and nutrition-based food events
Yoga on Yamhill: Non-competitive approach to yoga that fosters health and well-being and is accessible to everyone
Can’t wait to see what’s in store for month three!
