I am terrible at sticking to a gym routine. I’ve tried, really I have, but I am just not a gym person. So what could I do? This is how I decided to start trying out different workout classes in Charlotte with ClassPass.
First and foremost, what is ClassPass? ClassPass offers a wide selection of wellness, fitness, and even beauty experience in Charlotte, North Carolina. Think of it as an amusement park for workout classes. You get credits and then cash them in for each class you like. Credits can be used to book a class or appointment. The amount of credits needed to book varies by reservation type, location, popularity & time.
To see a list of studios that ClassPass partners with all you need to do are going to the ClassPass homepage. You then hit click on “Explore Studios” at the top of the screen. Next, search by map view, list view, zip code, or activity. Here you will be able to see a full list of partners and classes you can try.
The Classes I Tried
First up, I tried my hand at AIR Charlotte Aerial Fitness again. The last time I did this work was back in 2018 so I started with the easy Flow Class. AIR® is, to put it in simple terms, it is an intense aerial fitness training program resulting in long lean muscle in record-breaking time. Basically, AIR® offers you a unique type of workout that makes you feel incredibly great.
For my first AIR® class, I took the AIR® Foundation fitness class. This 50-minute workout class provided me with the fundamentals of aerial fitness and taught me the essentials of AIR®. I really enjoyed it and felt like I had a good stretch and balance focuses workout. During this class, we did some basic inversions and a lot of leg and arm stretching. It was very simialr to yoga, just with a silk. At the end of the class we did a nice resting pose inside the silk with some lavendar oil. It was relaxing and a great way to start off my fitness journey.
The second class I tried was a Pole Bosy & Arts class. I took an intro class because I had never done pole before. This class is great because every and any body is a pole body. You don’t need any experience to start taking pole dance fitness classes and this class was a great way to deep your toes on the pole. You wear comfortable workout clothing and I wore my socks during the class. The teacher was so much fun and she went slow to help us understand pole basic grips, push and pull movements and also how to slide down. This was not only so much fun but also such an arm workout.
My Class List Goals
I ended up paying only $59 for 28 credits so I could try out ClassPass even more. What I like about ClassPass is that there is no studio commitment. I think for me, that was the hard part. Now I can workout when I want and on my own scedule. I also don’t get bored becuase I can always switch up my workout routine.
Some of my goals for these next few weeks are to experience another class at MoveStudio Charlotte which I tried back in 2020 and also add pilates, boxing, rowing and some dance classes to my weekly workout routine. You can see my ClassPass progress and the different fitness classes I try out here.
