making a list, checking it twice


Being home for the holidays is always a time for family togetherness and a little R&R. It’s also the perfect time to put my fit crashing skills to work here in Ohio. If you remember my Thanksgiving vacation, you’ll know that the Original Fit Crasher and I waste no time putting together a plan of action for sweating across the city. After doing some homework, I’ve come up with a Christmas list of places to choose from this go around. Which one would you want to crash?

Hot Yoga


Kettle Bell


  • Clear: the “Move” class offers a mixture of Pilates, yoga, and barre
  • Pure Barre: at $23, this chain is just as expensive as DC
  • Bella Forza Fitness: with 26 other class options, I’ll be checking this place out for more than just barre

Grab Bag

  • ELMNTL Fitness: an outdoor circuit workout in Woodland Mound Park
  • Queen City Crossfit: I’ve never tried the “sport of fitness” so why not give it a go
  • Broadway Blast Dance Class:from Bella Forza Fitness, “uses your favorite show tunes to create one dance-filled hour of fat-scorching, muscle-toning, health-building fun”
  • Insanity Fit Club and TRX: two crazy hard workouts at Hyde Park Body Boutique

What workouts are on your holiday list?

      Hi Ashley – so good to hear from you! I had such a great time meeting you while home in Cincinnati and look forward to coming back to Highfive again soon. The haircut is awesome. Thanks for the great recommendation about Moksha yoga – I loved it and was so excited to try something new. “Swing This” will be on my list for next time and hopefully you can come and “crash” with me. Take care!
