Back-To-Back Exercise Classes

Do You Take Back-to-Back Exercise Classes on the Weekend?

A group of friends and I decided to make this weekend a fitness-focused one, so armed with a few coupons and new student deals, we're trying out a few exercise classes around town. Between dance class and Bar Method, it can be a lot to cram into two short days, so one of my friends suggested a schedule that will have us taking classes back-to-back on both Saturday and Sunday.

As much as I wanted to see what these classes are like, at first I wasn't sure if I want to spend that much time inside when I could be enjoying the outdoors or running errands. Not only that, I was worried that scheduling classes one right after the other would leave me sore and out of breath. So I compromised by agreeing to a yoga class followed by a dance class — not too intense, so we'd still be able to enjoy ourselves.

What about you? Are you such a fan of exercise classes that you want to take as many as you can on the weekend, or would you rather get class over with so you can do other things in your day?

I try to keep it outside on the weekends but I definitely take advantage of the extra time by extending the amount of time I am exercising. I go for a longer run or a long bike ride, which is not only exercise but fun time spent with my husband. I am also not big on classes although I really hope to someday start taking the time for yoga classes.

I go back and forth. Right now, I'm training for a half marathon, and weekends are a perfect time to fit in those 2 hour plus long runs. But sometimes it's nice to take the whole weekend off, especially if I'm on a road trip with friends or something.

The only exercise I have planned on the weekends is a Sunday-morning jog. I usually get in plenty of other exercise either walking to town or riding my bike, but I use the weekend to recuperate from my week. During the week I usually work out 2 to 3 times a day to break up the stress and monotony of my desk job.

^huh? Whoa. The weekends for me are for catching up on sleep, running errands, and prepping for the weekday. I don't even want to think about going to the gym on the weekends.

This is ridiculous. It's a commitment of what, two or three hours of your day? That's not unreasonable for a day when you're off work. IMO the weekend (or any day off) is specifically intended for those long bouts of exercise or activities that you can't fit into workdays.

I usually take the weekend off. During the week I have so much more motivation to work out.
