12 Jun #WOD is a four letter word AKA Why I love Classpass Part 2
In Part 2, I will be discussing more of my favorite Classpass classes.
Ninja/Parkour at 305 Ninja Academy-if you’re a fan of American Ninja Warrior or any obstacle course race such as the Tough Mudder or the Spartan Race, this class if for you! Just off of 36th Street by the airport, this is a virtual adult playground. They have walls you scale, uneven bars, trampoline, zipline, and other toys!
305 Ninja Academy: 7213 NW 54th St, Miami, FL 33166
Level 1 at Rise Nation Miami-a 30 minute full body workout using a VersaClimber, you are guaranteed to sweat in this class. My first class was so challenging, I wanted to quit 5 minutes in. Glad I stayed to finish because I felt so accomplished and exhilarated. The room lights are turned off with LEDs coordinating with the music so you really get in the zone.
Rise Nation Miami: 3814 NE 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33137
TBC at the The Barre Code Miami-A bootcamp-style barre workout with three sections of strength-training exercises with two sets of high-intensity cardio intervals. My favorite instructor is Jo Murdock. She really gets you to work hard and emphasizes good form.
The Barre Code: 2063 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL 33137
Florida Boss Chick Workout Class at The Boss Chick Dance Workout-this class is a high intensity hip hop, dance hall, afrobeats fusion “twerkout”. The class features dance cardio set to the hottest beats of hip-hop, dancehall, and afrobeats. The instructor, Simone, is a classically-trained dancer who has worked with Madonna and Debbie Allen.
B2 Studio Boutique: 222 NE 25th Street, Miami, FL 33137
Gigi’s Dance Party at The House of Movement-Speaking of dance workouts, this is one of the best. Headed by the energetic and stunning Gigi Stoot, this cardio workout class will make you sweaty in a super fun way. Incorporates the fusion of all types of dance, such as, Bollywood, African, Hip-Hop, Latin, samba, and burlesque.
The House of Movement: 1900 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL, 33129
XCO Shape at Body Concept by Julia-This class is awesome! Even more awesome with the super high energy of the instructor Julia. She really gets you motivated and emphasizes proper form. This class uses the XCO Trainer, a tube filled with a free moving mass which consists of loose particles of an irregular shape. By dynamically swinging the XCO back and forth, the movement of the particles trigger a series of responses from the body, particularly in the deep muscles of the core. It’s a lot of fun and will definitely make you sweat!
Body Concept by Julia: 12816 SW 122nd Ave, Miami, FL 33186
45 sound meditation at Greenmonkey Yoga-Taught by the lovely Jasmyn Russell, this class is just pure bliss. Focusing on an intention, Jasmyn guides you through a 45-minute meditation using music, singing bowls, gongs, and her angelic voice.
Greenmonkey Yoga: 1800 Bay Rd, Miami Beach, FL 33139
Rock Climbing at Morphe-This is a very challenging yet fun class! My fingers and forearms were killing the next day. This 55 minute class is taught by certified International Climbing and Mounteering Federation instructor. You will learn the basics of bouldering as well as perform strengthening exercises.
Morphe: 810 Southwest 22nd Avenue, (Park in Rear), Miami, FL 33135
