When I first moved back to Cleveland after graduation, it was a bit of a change all at once. I went from being a college student one day to being a young professional in the business world the next. It took a while to get into a routine with all aspects of my work week, especially finding a workout that I loved. I was used to going on hikes with my friends, spin classes with my sorority sisters and jogs around campus. I found myself in a new city, even though I grew up in a suburb of Cleveland, asking around for workout suggestions, trying out new classes and making friends!

Here’s a roundup of my top 5 go-tos in Cleveland when you are looking for a fun group workout. So grab a buddy and choose one of these out today!


1. Harness Cycle

Harness Cycle is one of the most popular spin studios around. It’s located on West 29th and Detroit Avenue in Ohio City. With the opening of this cycling studio in 2013, the Ohio City area began to transform.


2. Orangetheory Fitness

Orangetheory Fitness is one of the most unique workouts around and has a location in Rocky River. The one hour class involves cardiovascular and strength training intervals and much more. Their goal is to burn more calories, even after leaving the studio, which they refer to as the Orange Effect. Check out their video to learn more about what exactly Orangetheory Fitness is:

3. Inner Bliss Yoga Studio

Inner Bliss Yoga Studio offers a variety of classes, located in all of the hot spots of our city! With locations in Cleveland, Rocky River, and Westlake, Inner Bliss is one of the hottest spots around when it comes to yoga. From classes for kids to unique workshops and events, there is always something on the calendar to participate in.



4. Fitworks

I attend Heidi’s Zumba class every Tuesday and her Club Vibe workout on Thursday nights at the Rocky River Fitworks. They also have locations in Mentor, Parma, Highland Heights, and Willoughby. I love the energy in the room and enjoy letting off steam by breaking out dance moves to “Uptown Funk”, Lil' Jon's "Outta your Mind" ft. LMFAO, "Girly Things" and many more. Jumping around with friends, while working out different muscles with squats, jumping jacks, and more never fails to be a great time and an intense cardio workout.



5. Cleveland Plays

Not much of a fitness class person? No problem! Cleveland Plays is a sports and socials club that offers sports like beach volleyball, floor hockey, and more. It’s a great way to get a workout in while still having a good time with your best buds.

Planning For EveryTHING Isn't The Best Plan For EveryONE

Let's face it; planning is stressful.

103

Honestly, planning everything throughout your life sucks. I've done it and it had ultimately lead to disappointment or had actually worked out. It's frustrating living life like that.

What I have learned through these last few months of my 19 years on this planet is that planning for everything is not realistic and leads to overwhelming expectations that can't be met in some cases.

Examples of life's spontaneity are when you just stub your two and then later find a dollar in your sweatpants pocket.

You honestly didn't plan to buy a 99-cent coke from the machine today but you had a dollar. And does your foot hurt from working all day and should you go to the hospital to see if your toe is broken maybe?

Though I am really young and have only been through a small sliver of life I've seen/heard a lot of things that give me many different perspectives.

Sometimes it's better to just sit back and see how life unfolds in some cases it may be good or bad. As people, we take the good and the bad and just roll with it.

Though at first, it may be difficult to start just letting things go, trust me I know.

According to Inc.com, it's important to manage your stress but also develop positive and healthy affirmations.

The point of this article is to show how unpredictable life can be and it really happens to everyone . things do go out of sync and that's perfectly okay.

As Ariana Grande would say "just keep on breathin'" because things will get better and things won't go as planned all the time and once you realize that you will be more content and know what to expect and don't let one miss hap ruin your day.

Starting a day with a bad attitude can lead to a bad week, a bad month or even year. This sort of funk can set things totally off the rails and no one wants to live life like that.

Perspective is the most important thing a person can have within themselves and perspective allows us to see things from different point of views and different struggles and successes.

If someone were to plan every second of their day it could lead an overwhelming feeling of being trapped within the schedule. Sometimes having little bumps down the road are good things to distract you from the daily stresses of life. being productive is important and setting time for work and events is important but it is also important to find time to enjoy life and relax.

Sometimes you have no idea what you may be doing that day and that's okay because some of the best things that happen in life aren't planned to a T. yes, is it important to prepare for some things, like a big meeting absolutely but what the point I am attempting to make is to enjoy the little surprises life has to offer.
