    I’ve been wanting to try solidcore! You should let me know when you’re planning to go next 😉

    I’ve been wanting to try orange theory but I’ve heard it’s really difficult and I’m not in the best shape. I had a bad cough/cold in January Which kept me out of the gym for 3 weeks. My goal is to get back into a routine and then try 1 orange theory class ?.

      Lisa, Orangetheory is hard – but you can also take it at your own pace. Definitely don’t push yourself when you have a bad cough/cold, but once you feel better, you should definitely go! Just tell your teacher that you’re a little nervous about it and they’ll definitely motivate you and help you with modifications. YOU CAN DO IT!!

    Solidcore is such a good class but SO hard! I felt like I grew abs during it! Can’t wait to hear your review!

      Omg it was so hard but SO GOOD! I’m definitely going to go back for another class – although I’m slightly scared for how sore my obliques will be tomorrow haha

    After going to many Flywheel classes, I think that the key to beating your high score is finding your sweet spot – the mix of cadence and resistance that gives you your greatest output. Some people excel at high RPMs, but I personally prefer a lower RPM with higher resistance. While I NEVER win the sprint challenges in Flywheel – sometimes I’m straight up LAST – I’ll still be towards the top of the board at the end of class. I think you also have to find your ideal resistance during the arms section, too. Finally, consider how tired your legs are. I struggle to cut myself slack when I know my legs are tired because I’m competitive, but it’s a significant factor. Prep yourself to achieve a high score by avoiding leg-intensive activity 2 days prior to class.

    I definitely think with consistency you’ll see those scores come up! Also, I LOVE Allie’s classes.
