Workout With Me

August 4, 2017

This summer I have really been dedicating the majority of my time and energy to getting healthy. I have been working out a ton and I am trying to eat healthier, while still balancing it all out with the occasional doughnut and pizza splurge. 😉 I have been going to spin classes multiple times a week since April and boy do I see a huge change, not so much with my weight, but with my energy and my attitude. I go in the morning and its the perfect kickstart workout to my day, I leave with more energy I could have ever imagined myself having after waking up at 4:45 AM and it lasts ALL DAY.

 

workout with me

 

It’s the music during the classes and the sense of community, that my body has been lacking, which always has me anxiously awaiting my next class. Ever since college volleyball ended I have been needing to find my place again in the workout world and I have finally found it. For some it’s yoga, some prefer barre, whatever it is, find it and stick with it. I have become friends with my instructors and they are the ones that motivate me, they are what push me to be a better version of myself. …And having one of my best friends go through all of this with me, makes it all even better. I mean everyone needs someone to hold you accountable and make sure you get to class on time! (Even if you are ALWAYS 2 minutes late on Tuesdays)

 

 

It’s the music that really keeps me going and really pushes me just a little bit harder. I rounded up some of my favorite songs that I have heard in my classes or that I just love to listen to at the gym. The songs that are motivational during the “my ride” song usually really stick with me. You can follow along with me on my Spotify.

    Can’t get enough Despacito right now, but it’s not great for the gym! My gym buddy has been sick for the past couple of weeks and it has been hard to stay motivated to go! I have gone to a couple of classes and that has been better than hitting the weight room alone

      I know Michelle, Despacito is so so catchy! I feel you on working out alone, its tough to stay motivated thats why I love classes so much because someone is telling me what to do! Hopefully your gym buddy gets well soon so you can get back at it!

    Mama by Jonas Blue is such a good one!! I feel like I have had the most random Spotify playlists lately but I have been enjoying the Hot Rhythmic playlist on there.

    Good for you for focusing on your health! It’s really the most important thing to focus on. You must take care of yourself before others xx

    These are my current fav songs to workout to:
    Bea Miller- “I Dare You”
    MNEK- “Never Forget You”
    Selena Gomez- “Kill Em With Kindness”

    High five to this!! Cycle classes are the best!! I’ve always loved them but feel like the instructors energy and the music they pump out is what makes the class so addicting. I’ve been lost since my favorite cycle coach moved a year ago, but finally just joined a new(ish) studio (SALT Cycle) and it’s finally giving me life again! If you’re ever in the Tiverton/Portsmouth/Newport area and want to hit a spin class with me, let me know..You’d love it.

    Fun!! I love cycling! We have a peloton so I love the sense of community I can get whenever I want. A lot of the studios near me don’t offer times that work with me schedule.

    I’ve started to listen to podcasts while I work out, ha! Probably the most “adult” thing I do.

    I take Pure Barre classes and totally agree with you about the music and the community! I love that the music in a workout class is timed with the “mood” of the section of class, making it easier to get into the music!
