In college, I made it a point to head to the gym once a week (for social reasons mostly), maybe went for a quick run around the sorority block (probably to work on my tan), and most definitely never enjoyed any of it. It was a means to control my weight and eat even more nachos that at-the-time I didn't see any issue with. Fast forward years later post-graduation I grew a new found appreciation for breaking a sweat. It wasn't easy and took a lot of trial and error to figure out the right classes and sweat sessions that felt fun and right for my body. On top of that I didn't just want to work out better I wanted to see the fruits of my labor and see a change in my body so eating healthier was step two to finding a better balance. 

Currently, I am training for a 10K. In February I ran one so this one will be my second 10K in a few months. The training is my favorite part, it allows my body to prepare itself for the big run. Last time around I didn't push myself enough to run on hills so when it came time to do it for real I overexerted myself and hurt my knee somewhere along on race day. 

To be better prepared for this race I partnered up with Flywheel-- an indoor cycling studio-- to train better, smarter and push my body for the upcoming race. I've been a fan of Flywheel for many years now, I've spent many a bad-Monday in the studio sweating out the day. The energy from the tireless instructors, immaculate facilities, perks I didn't even know I needed like fresh fruit, face wash, and endless bobby pins make this gym one of my favorites in San Francisco.  

If you are in the area, I'd definitely recommend this gorgeous gym, central to downtown and the Embarcadero. Use code FLY VANILLA for your first class on-the-house!
