Friday + Fitness + Fun

Happy Friday, Friends!

I hope you have had a wonderful week!  For the first time in a month, Jonny and I are not packing our bags to get out of town and a weekend at home is just what the doctor ordered.

I have talked about fitness on occasion and workouts that I like (here and here)... they may be few and far between as I am not a fitness guru by an means, but when I find something I love I always want to share it with you guys right away.  I am so excited to talk about CycleBar with you.  Not only is it my new favorite workout, but my little sister (Zoe) is instructing at their DTC location and I just can't get enough of these classes (reserve a bike here).  As many of you know she just moved home from NYC and CycleBar has been the perfect place for her to bring her love for music, choreography, and tap-backs to Colorado.

After I shared my Soul Cycle experience with you all, I got a lot of questions about my favorite local spin studio and I had a very hard time coming up with any that I really loved and would return to on a regular basis.  Enter CycleBar... I bumped into master instructor (Kmax) while out to dinner and she explained that her class was a lot like a dance party on a spin bike.  That's I'll I needed to hear - I attended my first class a few days later and have been hooked ever since!

The classes are hard, but I love leaving each time and knowing that I have gotten a fantastic workout in (in less than an hour!).  The time also goes by quickly because each instructor focuses on great music and matching your RPM's to the beat.  I also love the effort and little extras that they provide at each studio... happy hour classes, blow out/beauty evenings, water bottles (for those like me who tend to forget theirs at home), fruit for refueling, plentiful hand sanitizer and chapstick... it's the little things, ya know!

However, I do think my very favorite thing about CycleBar is that they are so involved in the community.  CycleBar is teaming up with the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association to host 3 CycleNation pop up rides to raise money and awareness for such an important cause.  The first ride is tomorrow (and almost sold out!) get more information here and the next two are October 1st and 2nd (info here).

I am hosting a great giveaway with CycleBar over on instagram - you can enter to win a 5 class package... If you have not tried it yet, enter to win @denver.darling.  

Have a great weekend!
