5 Reasons To Sign Up For A Lunchtime Class Today


It’s getting warmer, so naturally that means your social calendar is buzzing with happy hour dates and outdoor concerts (Right?). If you’re getting overwhelmed thinking about how you’re going to stay in shape over the summer with your calendar filling up, allow us to introduce you to the beauty of sneaking out midday for a lunchtime class (along with recommendations in every city):

Sleeping in is better than not sleeping in
We’re looking at you, morning workout fiends. We have mad respect for that jolt of energy you get by kick starting your day at a studio, but let’s be real. The sleep benefits of snoozing through your a.m. class are going to help you be just as productive in that 9:00 a.m. brainstorming meeting.

And your happy hour game will be so strong
Need we point out that not going straight from the office to the studio means you can go directly from the office to drinks with your friends? Goodbye 7:30 p.m. class. Hello summer socializing.

You’ll be more productive at work
Studies have found over and over again that exercise can boost your memory and cognitive function, but even more interesting are the studies that have found that exercise boosts your creative and productivity in the workplace. Squeezing in a quick sweat sesh will improve your overall performance, and we bet your boss will notice. 

It’s way more fun than eating at your desk
Seriously, shoveling down a salad while scrolling through Facebook for 30 minutes in the middle of the day isn’t doing you any favors, but upping your heart rate and toning those arms definitely will.

It’s amazing out there
Ever throw a little accidental side-eye at the people who seem to have perfected the park workout? Join them! Find an outdoor class that meets in the park, pack some shades and enjoy the fresh air while your coworkers are stuck inside.

So many options!
