We all have busy lives! I am thankful that I am able to have a gym membership with some really great classes. There are days however when I just can not make it to the gym. I do workout on my own sometimes, but I have found that I tend to do better with at least one other person. Mostly for the accountability of it.
Thanks to my partnership with Girls Gone Sporty, I had the privilege of being part of a beta test group for Mommy Track Fitness! Through this opportunity I was given the chance to virtually attend 2 classes in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.
I was really excited to try out these classes! They came at the perfect time since I was not able to make it to the gym much last week due to my work schedule.
Before I was able to attend the classes, I was sent a link to register for the class. It was pretty simple to pick the classes I was going to attend. (At first I clicked on the wrong date, but it was simple to fix). Then I received confirmation emails about the classes, and the links to take me to the live class. All the emails I received gave great instructions on how to get everything done.
The first class I attended was a 30 min Cardio Fusion. Bringing you the best of both worlds, Cardio Fusion combines low and high impact cardio, cardio drills, and strength training for the ultimate calorie-burning workout.
The second class I attended was a 30 min Tabata Max. A high intensity interval training workout based on the Tabata training method — 4-minute intervals that consists of 20 seconds of intense exercise, followed by 10 seconds of rest. Our Tabata Max class consists of a 5 minute warm-up, followed by 20 minutes of Tabata-style training featuring upper body, lower body, and cardio intervals, and closed out with a 5 minute cool down and stretch.
The classes offer a variety of exercises with modifications if you need them. The beauty of each class is that you can work at your own pace!
You don’t need a lot of equipment for the classes. A yoga mat, resistance bands, and weights. It is a great combo for at home workouts!
I used my laptop for the classes, but you can also access them from a phone or tablet. Great if you are on the go!
Even though the company is called Mommy Track Fitness, you don’t have to be a mommy to attend! The class is open to anyone (even men).
One thing I really appreciated about Alex was her cheerful attitude and her ability to make sure we were all on the same page. She was great with communicating back and forth and letting me know what I needed.
I was not expecting for everyone to be able to see everyone else who was attending, so at 5am, I was a little surprised, but it all worked out. It ended up being nice to be able to see others so I did not feel like I was really alone!
For me the only drawback was the time of day. The classes I attended were at 5am my time (6am on the east coast). It was little rough getting up at 4:30, but I made it. There will be options for other times in the future, so that is something I would consider for the next time I take a MTFit class!
