One of my newer favorite sites, RateYourBurn, interviewed me as part of their “Classhole” series. Yes, that word struck me as strange and slightly off-putting when I first saw it, but it actually fits in really well with RateYourBurn’s direct, witty, borderline irreverent tone.
If you’re ever looking for a New York City or Boston fitness class review, this site not only reviews tons of classes at countless gyms and studios, they review each instructor as well. The reviews are brutally honest — not just about the class but the instructor’s personality and teaching style as well. That means this is a fantastic resource when looking for classes.
Not only do I enjoy reading reviews of classes and instructors I’ve taken, I also use the site when I’m contemplating trying something new. Just last week I read their review of Grant at FlyWheel to be sure I wanted to take his 6 am spin class. And I did. And it was awesome.
When RateYourBurn loves a class, they really LOVE the class — which makes me want to get myself there as soon as humanly possible. And even though I don’t always agree with their reviews, the fact that they make me want to drop what I’m doing and try a new class means they’re doing something very right.
