Lifetime In Boca + Finally Tried A Run Class!

I have two important things to discuss before listing my workouts from last week!

Lifetime in Boca

While in Florida last week, I went to Lifetime in Boca Raton. I was last there 10 years ago!

At the time, I was a Lifetime member here in New York. Now, as an Equinox member, it was pretty interesting to go back to a Lifetime. Let me explain…


Don’t get me wrong – Lifetime is a big beautiful facility with all of the amenities you could want from an athletic club.

However, it’s what I would call a fancy sweat factory. It was sweaty, not as clean, didn’t smell pleasant, had a lot going on, and just didn’t feel as pristine as my daily experiences at Equinox.

My son had told me this same opinion once he joined Equinox after having a Lifetime membership more recently than me here in New York. Now that I experienced Lifetime again for myself, I see the difference and exactly what he meant.

Now, that does not mean I didn’t enjoy myself at Lifetime in Boca. In fact, I checked the class schedule for the day I was going and got so lucky to see Warrior Sculpt at the time I could attend!

If you have been reading for a while, you may recall that I used to do Warrior Sculpt through Lifetime on Demand workouts during the pandemic. It was my FAVORITE workout and turned me into a yoga-loving person. I had never taken the class in person until now!

Warrior Sculpt in person was challenging, amazing, and so fun. I’m actually really proud of myself for how far I’ve come with yoga and my ability to keep up with these types of classes.

I had this PB & B smoothie right after the class from the Lifetime Cafe. I mentioned the smoothie in Friday’s post but just in case you missed it, it was delicious and necessary.


My First Precision Run Class

I’m so excited to report that I FINALLY tried the run class at Equinox! While I usually choose spin on Saturday which conflicts with the run class time, I opted to try Precision Run on Saturday instead of spin because I hadn’t run in a week and was really in the mood.

First, although I was new to the class style, I’m obviously not a new runner. In fact, I was likely the most experienced runner in the class – other runners and the instructor noticed I was going really fast and not having any issues with the intervals. The girl next to me was so nice and said at one point – wow you are really fast!

The class is structured for all levels because you control your pace range but need to know what your PR pace is — well, that was not something I knew right away. PR pace as in fastest ever? Fastest for what type of workout and/or distance? I really wasn’t sure at first so I just played a bit until I figured out halfway through the class that 8.0 and even above was my PR pace to base things around.

The class is run/walk intervals. I don’t normally walk during my runs — if I’m running intervals, I would run fast and then run easy for the slower intervals. This particular workout was one min running/one min walking with a mixed focus on inlines and speed. So honestly, this felt relatively “easy” because every minute I was walking but not really easy if that makes sense. Running is always a workout and the intervals, even though they included walking, were much different from my usual runs which is really A GOOD THING. I like variety right now so it’s nice to add variety to my running.

I mentioned the class structure to Laura who also wrote this good post about the benefits of Run/Walk intervals.

Will I take the class again? YES. Will I try to remember I can also use the Equinox+ App for the running workouts to do on my own? YES.
