Last year, I went to a luncheon for a launch of peerFit, a health technology company based in Florida. From their website, “peerFit is a health-technology company that empowers people to get fit by connecting them to group fitness. Through its free mobile application and website, peerFit offers fitness consumers interactive and motivational fitness features in order to get and stay fit”.
They’ve come out with a new concept for people to get a taste of different fitness classes before committing to a long term package at a certain studio.
Here in Tampa, we can pick from 5 different places to go to from with our peerFit Passport.
They include a long & lean section, and then the strength and power section. Right now, I will probably only be visiting studios that apply to long & lean. With the pregnancy, I’m not trying to get my heart rate up too high or push myself too hard. I’m all about lifting weights and staying fit, but just not at the level the strength and power classes provide.
Back in April, I visited Orange Theory Fitness, so I know it is a pretty kicking workout. It pushes you to your limits in a group setting, and you can really see a lot of results from it. I’m not familiar with Performance Compound, however I am crazy interested to try it out. Here is a quick snip it from their website “The Compound has paved its way as the industry leader in providing holistic programming to all clients dedicated to improving performance. Our performance programs have serviced MLB All-Star’s, Gold Glove Winner’s, NFL Pro-Bowlers, NHL Conn Smythe award winners, as well as executives, tactical, amateur, collegiate, high school, youth and weekend warriors. We want to challenge your physical & mental preparation as well as how you perceive everyday challenges. We will motivate you, inspire you and deliver results driven training to every program we offer.”
As for the long & lean classes, I am definitely planning on hitting up all of them. I have heard nothing but amazing things about South Tampa Pilates. Classes range in experience level from educating beginners, engaging intermediates and challenging advanced devotees. You can choose from private, semi- private and class environments on any given day of the week.
Surf Fit is another one of the studios in the long and lean category. From their website, “it is our mission to cater to all fitness levels. We know that building a strong CORE is the foundation to proper fitness.” I am definitely going to check this class out for sure. It seems completely scalable, which is perfect for me right now.
Last but not least is Body Heat Yoga Studio. I am a little bit hesitant to check this one out right now because of the heat, but I might give it a shot, and if it bothers me too much, I’ll just go ahead and leave the class early. It seems like a great studio, offering a good range of class times.
I am excited to get to using the Passport and check out a few new studios in Tampa. I’ll be sure to report back when I visit some of the new places! If you are in the Tampa area, check out the Living Social deal for the passport that is being featured now! You have 11 more days to purchase it for just $39.
