There are not enough hours in the day, am I right?! Recently I’ve been using my hectic schedule as a scapegoat for not working out. But let’s be real, if I have time to sit on the couch and eat some salt & vinegar chips while watching sex and the city then I have time to workout.
With my stress at an all-time high, my body and mind were craving a solution. I made a pact to start prioritizing physical activity for my well being. It’s funny how things seem to fall into place once you make a decision, believe in it, and declare it. Less than a week after this proclamation I was approached by Life Time Fitness to check out their facilities.
After a solid week back into my workout routine before my visit, I was beyond sore and tired but couldn’t wait to check out this new gym that I kept hearing about. Being my extra self, I decided to take two classes back to back. Mind you this was after taking 4 barre classes 4 days in a row, ya I know I’m crazy.
I took an amazingly intense spin class. The instructor was energetic, motivating, and tough- my favorite combo! The room was equipped with state of the art bikes. The vibe was right up my alley, I could feel the music pumping through my veins while the strobe-esq lights paired seamlessly to the beat. Next, being the barre addict that I am, I took an express barre session that really kicked my ass. I got to my shaky legs right away in the expansive and bright studio.
I’m obsessed with the locker room. Between the relaxation space, sauna, hot tub, and rain showers I was definitely living my best life. After spending a few hours hydrating and pruning I made my way over to the cafe for a delicious meal.
My favorite thing about lifetime fitness has to be the staff and atmosphere. I’m a little bougie when it comes to my workouts but I hate when the vibe is pretentious- this is such a hard balance to find. I felt like I was spending time at a resort, Ritz Carlton style, yet with a friendly and welcoming environment. They have something for everyone!
