I've always wanted to try rock climbing. They have a rock wall in my university's gym but I never get the nerve to try it.

@le romantique, do you have an equinox or lifetime fitness near you? I have gotten great results from equinox barre burn, and it has been a great compliment to my yoga practice.

I've always wanted to get back into running. I did track in middle and early high school, though that was well over a decade ago. My knees have since turned into crunchy balls of pain if I do any impact cardio, so I've been relegated to the elliptical. I think I could take it on if I did a massive amount of prep work to strengthen the muscles around the joints, but I'm just not sure if it would be worth the work.

Been wanting to take up a new dance class, but not quite sure where to start! Also would love to get back into spin/rpm classes. Used to do them all the time, but now I just don't feel like I'd be fit enough to make it through!

I've always wanted to try spinning, but i'm not in that great of shape (at least when it comes to cycling) and I've heard so many stories of SUPER INTENSE spinning instructors.

I am not only intimidated by running a marathon, it sounds like pure torture. And I don't think I could ever try spinning again. I only did it for a few minutes and my poor non-existent rear was sooo sore!

I have been thinking about trying a boot camp, but I don't want to pay $100 for 10 classes and then not like it!

I would love to try everything! But there's no way I'm going to a class until I'm at an acceptable weight--people stare and it sucks.

Yoga. I tried a few minutes at my gym's class and seriously punked out. Ugh. It seems too hard. Le Romantique, I hear you. I wanted to try the Barre Method and I looked at two websites here in L.A. It does seem to be run by high-maintenance bitches.

I really want to try deep water running, but I'm not the best runner. Plus bathing suit...

Always was curious about the various "Barre/Barre Method" classes, but when I find a place in my area and I check out their website... they all seem like they're run by a bunch of b*tches. I'm not kidding... I'll stick to my distance running, circuit training and yoga for now...
