Day #23, 24, & 25 – Yoga Central, BAM @ Blitz and Barre Body Studio

Sorry if this is a little late but better late than never right? Once I finished the last 3 days of my 25 day challenge a ton of things started to fall into place for SplitFit and I’ve been crazy busy moving things forward. More to come on that but now, a quick recap of my 23rd, 24th and 25th workout in a row.

Day 23 – Yoga Central

After a long day of work and then a couple meetings at the U of A it was 8:30pm and I thought I would just have to get home and take the dogs for a run and call it Day #23 – Hound Run…I had my workout gear in my vehicle so before heading home I did a quick scan of a couple yoga schedules online and saw that Yoga Central had a 9-10pm Hot Flow class and the studio was just a few kilometers from the University. Done! I ripped over and slipped in just before the class began, had a great session and ended a crazy packed day on a high note.

This was a warm yoga session (I wouldn’t call it hot) and consisted of a nice long warmup that started out with some breathing exercises and sun salutations followed by about 15 minutes of standing postures and another 15-20 minutes of floor postures. A nice thing about attending a new studio or having a new instructor is I usually get to try out some new poses that I’ve never done before. The instructor Josh had some gooders. I was also able to have a little chat with Josh after the class and we have some mutual friends through the U of A v-ball network. Small world.

Anyways – thanks Josh and Yoga Central for the Thursday late night yoga sesh.

Day #24 – Back @ Blitz Conditioning to Support BAM Edmonton

It was Friday and I knew I needed to get a challenging workout in and up until now, Blitz was the spot that I knew would deliver. So I hit up the Friday 6pm karma class…And yes – it delivered. It was a full house and all donations were going to support Bust A Move… I think the running fundraising total has reached over $1000 from Blitz which definitely says something about their dedication to supporting the community.

For the full run-down of Blitz Conditioning, check out my day #4 blog post. Out of the 25 workouts done over the month of January, the HIIT classes here are by far the most challenging.

Day #25 – Barre Body Studio Edmonton

Well I didn’t plan on doing Barre, but sure glad I did. Gent’s, this is way harder than you may think. I was literally pouring sweat after about 10 minutes.

High reps, small short movements and every exercise / movement you do, you do it until you feel the burn…

Although I was the only dude in the class, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and now my wife Kat is eager to try it out herself.

Overall – Beautiful facility, easy access, good vibe and glow juicery in the house for after workout refreshments.

Thats it ladies and gentleman. 25 days, 25 workouts. I’ve had a blast doing it and found some hidden gem fitness studios that I’m looking forward to returning to. Thanks to all the venues that welcomed me!

Stay tuned for more info on SplitFit.com

Cheers!
