Since I usually eat breakfast at work, you never get to see delicious morning eats… but Anthony’s oatmeal looked so beautiful this morning that I made him stop and take a picture of it.If someone could invent a year-round way to produce fresh summer berries, I would pay them a million dollars.
Anyways, I don’t have a million dollars which is why I’m always on board for free stuff! So when Revolve cycling studio in Arlington invited me — on behalf of Active Life DC — to come try out their Cross Cycle Challenge the other day, I was like YES. (You can read other reviews about the Cross Cycle Challenge here)The Challenge: 45 minutes of spinning, followed by an hour of yoga at Tranquil Space studio. It was a blast!Although I don’t have extensive experience in spinning, I’ll say that of the five or so studios I’ve been to, Revolve was the best one. Great instructors, clip-in shoes, free towels, awesome music, and prompt start time. Perfect!After our spin (and complimentary granola bars!), we headed to Tranquil Space for an hour of yoga. Lots of focus on the hips and legs! That’s me in the very back corner… the only one with her hands down. Yeeeep.Overall it was a fun and different experience — I’d recommend it to fitness enthusiasts with 2+ hours to dedicate to sweating and stretching. Both studios were very welcoming and the energy of the instructors and attendees was really upbeat. For a non-yoga lover and a non-spinner, I was pretty happy with the Challenge. I’ll have a full review on Active Life later if you’re interested in learning more.
And now it’s time to learn from you. I have a big question for you and need help! Anthony and I are looking for a new TV show to watch and have hit a dead end. We need a good find that’s available on Hulu Plus (we don’t have cable). Ideas welcome!!!
