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.

Everything You Will Miss If You Commit Suicide

The world needs you.
908211
views

You won’t see the sunrise or have your favorite breakfast in the morning.

Instead, your family will mourn the sunrise because it means another day without you.

You will never stay up late talking to your friends or have a bonfire on a summer night.

You won’t laugh until you cry again, or dance around and be silly.

You won’t go on another adventure. You won't drive around under the moonlight and stars.

They’ll miss you. They’ll cry.

You won’t fight with your siblings only to make up minutes later and laugh about it.

You won’t get to interrogate your sister's fiancé when the time comes.

You won’t be there to wipe away your mother’s tears when she finds out that you’re gone.

You won’t be able to hug the ones that love you while they’re waiting to wake up from the nightmare that had become their reality.

You won’t be at your grandparents funeral, speaking about the good things they did in their life.

Instead, they will be at yours.

You won’t find your purpose in life, the love of your life, get married or raise a family.

You won’t celebrate another Christmas, Easter or birthday.

You won’t turn another year older.

You will never see the places you’ve always dreamed of seeing.

You will not allow yourself the opportunity to get help.

This will be the last sunset you see.

You’ll never see the sky change from a bright blue to purples, pinks, oranges and yellows meshing together over the landscape again.

If the light has left your eyes and all you see is the darkness, know that it can get better. Let yourself get better.

This is what you will miss if you leave the world today.

This is who will care about you when you are gone.

You can change lives. But I hope it’s not at the expense of yours.

We care. People care.

Don’t let today be the end.

You don’t have to live forever sad. You can be happy. It’s not wrong to ask for help.

Thank you for staying. Thank you for fighting.

Suicide is a real problem that no one wants to talk about. I’m sure you’re no different. But we need to talk about it. There is no difference between being suicidal and committing suicide. If someone tells you they want to kill themselves, do not think they won’t do it. Do not just tell them, “Oh you’ll be fine.” Because when they aren’t, you will wonder what you could have done to help. Sit with them however long you need to and tell them it will get better. Talk to them about their problems and tell them there is help. Be the help. Get them assistance. Remind them of all the things they will miss in life.

For help, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

10 Ways To Keep Your Workout Motivation According To A Personal Trainer

"ALEXA play 'Work Bitch' by Britney Spears."

Keeping your motivation for working out is one of the number one reasons why I think people fail to achieve their fitness goals.

Now I am no "fitness guru" by any means, and I have lost my motivation many times and worked back up.

No one is perfect when it comes to working out, and everyone can have different methods that are successful but from what I have seen, and talking to a few personal trainers, these are some of the best ways to keep your motivation and not lose track of your goals.

If you stick to these 10 ways, you will definitely have a better mindset when it comes to working out, and that will help you push yourself hard because you know that you are capable of much more than you think!

That is the last piece of advice I will leave you with, you are so much more capable of than you think. I recall so many times in the gym, I've thought I was gonna just collapse or crumble cause I was so tired, but time and time again I persevere and finish a set, and see that I can really push myself to the limits, and this is when I've seen the best results.

1. Talk about your goals.

You have to speak your goals into existence. Also speaking about them to others can help hold you accountable and you are working so hard for them, don't give up and let what you accomplished so far go to waste!

2. Get a consistent workout buddy.

This is something that I have found helps me out a lot, my roommate Jordan and I are always checking in on each other to make sure that we've worked out!

3. Want better for yourself, not to impress someone else.

This is also very important, if you have fitness goals solely to impress someone else, you will never be satisfied, or never feel like enough.

4. Want it more than you say.

You really have to want your fitness goals more than you are saying. If you have this goal that is driving you constantly in the back of your mind, your motivation will keep coming from within.

5. Have a scheduled workout plan.

If you have a workout plan that a professional or yourself has constructed, it gives you something to follow and not break. Having a plan for yourself will help keep yourself on track.

6. Take pictures every week!

Seems cheesy, but taking photos of yourself every week can hold you accountable but more importantly, you are able to see results, big or small, if you aren't seeing them in person, you'll be able to tell through the photos.

7. Know what your plan is before you go to the gym.

You should know what your plan is before you go to the gym, try not to just wing it. If you are winging it, who knows if you are really pushing yourself and constantly challenging yourself every gym session.

8. Try your best to maintain a healthy diet during the week.

This can be difficult of course, meal prepping is someting that can always helps! BUT if you don't have time to meal prep, then just go to the grocery store and buy a bunch of healthy snacks to eat throughout the day to keep your motabalism working. Get foods to fuel your body so all your hard workouts don't go to waste!

9. Stick to a plan, it'll be hard at first, but it only gets easier.

Once you get into the swing of things, get into a routine, you'll get used to it. And then you will truly enjoy it, feel great, and have more energy!

10. Surround yourself with others that also have the same goals as you.

As cliche as it is, you do pick up the traits of the people you surround yourself with. If you surround yourself with overachievers, hard workers, who have the same fitness goals as you, you'll all work hard together and encourage each other along the way!
