Sorry for the slow down in blog posts. I've been searching hard for a new gym and have tried 5 different spin classes from different locations just to find one comparable to the one I took religiously for 2 years (it closed down in March). One studio after another, I kept getting disappointed-- either with the teacher or the music and it became exhausting just to find a class to suit my style. I was looking for something to replace exactly what I once had. Finally, my wish came true and found a spot conveniently located in the Marina that specifically catered to cycling-- Body Rok. It doubles as a Pilates studio and is very clean. I highly recommend trying a class for free-- just use the code: VIP2012 when signing up online. It's a great way to get in shape and even though summer is over, staying fit is always in season. For me, I like to get my cardio through running but spinning especially. It's the only method that keeps me motivated and engaged, plus these classes are short and sweet that dedicating 40 minutes a day to feel good about myself is something I can do.
