A Month on Class Pass | 1Rebel Ride

My friend Ani found out that Class Pass was available on offer for £1 for a months membership. ONE POUND. Bear in mind that for 5 classes the membership is usually £55 or for unlimited classes it's £120. So this was a real bargain and I signed up immediately.

In this blog series I will take you through the classes I did during my month on Class Pass. Some great, some okay and one I definitely wouldn't recommend. But lets start with the great!

Gym: 1Rebel
Location: St Mary Axe (near Liverpool Street)
Class: Ride
Instructor: Melissa

#KINGOFGYMS. Ride, Reshape and Rumble. 3 concepts. 2 venues. 1 Rebel Army.

1Rebel was one of the classes I was most excited to try, I'd heard so much about it and I also knew it was pretty expensive (£20 per class) so getting to do it for a fraction of the price was great! We did the Ride class, which is essentially a spin class on steroids. There is loud, club music with strobe lights, the works. Our instructor was called Melissa and she was so full of energy that you couldn't help but get into it. There was also a section of the workout where we used hand weights to get some arm exercises in so I definitely felt like I'd done a full body workout.

The changing rooms were beautiful, with copper lockers and cowshed products dotted around everywhere. My one criticism was the lack of showers, we had to queue for quite a while to shower. Some of the perks, other than the class of course, were a fridge full of chilled towels, the potential to get your hair blow dried and braided and the smoothie bar in the reception. Also if you do this class on a Friday evening then you get a free glass of prosecco afterwards. If that's not going to motivate you then I don't know what will! 

I found Class Pass to be really good in keep my motivation high and giving my fitness routine a bit of variety. I'm excited to share the other classes with you and then give an overview of my thoughts and whether it's worth the money.

Hope you enjoy this mini series!

It has been a while...

It has been almost a month since my last post. Truth be told, I have really fallen out of love with blogging. It's so competitive. How many followers do you have? Did you get sent those new products? Were you invited to that event?

I literally don't care.

I started my blog to write, I liked creating content I enjoyed. Sure, I enjoyed the freebies I occasionally got sent. I took on some dodgy casino based sponsored posts (judge away lol). But really I just liked spontaneously writing posts about life and nice beauty products.

In the past few months it feels like there is an unbelievable amount of pressure to have the perfect photos, the best writing style and the prettiest face. So I just gave up a bit. I know I won't be the kind of person to spend weekends asking my boyfriend to take my photo. I'm too self concious and it puts me in a bad mood to see that many photos of myself.

This post has no purpose, just my thoughts on the blogging world. I am so in awe of everyone killing it in their careers, it's so inspiring. But, honestly, it makes me feel like there's no point in keeping going. Who is going to read my random posts when there are so many amazingly curated blogs out there?
