Recess is the BEST part of the day!

Are you tired of your workout routine? Are you interested in taking a class such as Barre or Mat Pilates but your gym doesn't offer it? Moved to a new city and are unsure of where to workout?

Then GoRecess! is the perfect website for you!

What exactly IS Go Recess?

"The One-Stop Destination to Find, Book and Review Fitness Classes

Inspired by memories of elementary school recess, we created GoRecess to bring the fun back to fitness. Just as you couldn't wait to run around, play with friends, swing on the monkey bars or jump on the trampoline, our hope is that you'll find a fitness class you can't wait to dive into―one that is about more than just "working out." One where burning calories and getting in shape is just an added benefit. One that was like recess: communal, different, and FUN.
We're here to help you find your best class of the day, where you want, when you want, so you can be YOUR BEST every day. Maybe you're in the mood for a certain type of workout. Maybe you want convenience and something that fits your hectic schedule. Maybe you want variety and the flexibility to try new places. Or maybe you just need the motivation of a good instructor and others around you to inspire you to push yourself.
From spinning and yoga to pilates and boxing and more, GoRecess will help you find exactly what you're seeking. Say goodbye to boring runs on the treadmill, mindless strides on the elliptical and excuses to skip a workout. Now get off your couch or away from your desk and choose your recess."

 I really apologize for the photos, I did the best I could and tried several different options! Looks like you need to go to the website and check it out for yourself!

So I have been playing around with this site for a few weeks, and have already noticed an increase in fitness class options within 5 miles of my job in NYC. I have checked the options near my hometown on Long Island and there aren't as many but this website is still new. 

I encourage all of you to take a second and check out GoRecess, it may inspire you to try something you have never done before OR find something you didn't know exsisted!

I am excited to see the additions that will be added as the site grows, especially for fitness classes around my town. As a commuter I can't always make the classes I'd like to at my gym or sometimes I just don't want to take what is offered at that time, this website will provide me so many new options.


  1. Looks like a fun idea! I will have to check it out!

  2. This is great - thanks for the heads up!
