The hustle and bustle from living in downtown San Francisco can be a bit much at times but getting away during the week isn’t possible with our schedules and not owning a vehicle anymore. Luckily, jumping on a bus to hike Lands End is easy peezy! This hike is pretty self explanatory, it’s where the actual land ends. It is the most north west point in the city, by Ocean Beach. You moderately hike along the Pacific Ocean with gorgeous views of the water, vegetation and probably the tourists’ favorite part, views of the Golden Gate Bridge. The weekends can get pretty busy with locals and visitors so my husband and I love meeting after work to hike. It’s nice to talk without the distraction of our phones, ect. We call this one of our “no phone zones!” Ha. Lands End is truly one of my favorite parts of the city to decompress and get a workout in at the same time.
is a monthly membership to great quality boutique fitness classes in your city. There are literally thousands of classes available to ClassPass members, including cycling, outdoor bootcamps, barre, pilates, yoga, strength training, dance, martial arts and more.
For $99 a month, ClassPass members get unlimited classes to studios in the ClassPass network. You can take as many classes per month as you’d like but only visit the same studio up to 3 times per monthly membership cycle. Super busy one month? You’re able to put your membership on hold for a $19 fee and still get to take one class which I am actually doing at the moment. It has been a busy last few weeks!
I’ve been a ClassPass member for 9 months now. In 9 months, I’ve tried so many different barre classes which have increased my flexibility and confidence. I’ve conquered several Barry’s Bootcamp classes which I’ve been wanting to try for years but have been too scared of committing to the price of a class and the intensity. I’ve gotten to know San Francisco much better since I’ve tried many classes in different parts of the city that I normally wouldn’t frequent. I’ve been on a regular workout routine since I want to get my money’s worth out of my membership.
Did I mention they have an amazing app as well? Yes, book classes with ease via your smartphone!
My absolute favorite studios in San Francisco:
Am I buff yet? Nope.
Do I feel better about myself and my abilities? Absolutely.
I cannot say enough good things about the quality of classes available, their customer service and the value of ClassPass.

When we first moved to SF, we both bought new bicycles. Knowing that we’d use them for fun + exercise on the weekends and possibly even commuting to work and back, we were picky about what we purchased. Learning to bike in the city has been an adventure but as long as you’re smart about it, you’ll survive.
Move along to a few months later.
My husband and I kept seeing red scooters all around San Francisco with the “Scoot” logo. What on earth are these and how do we sign up?! Sign up HERE for $5 of free rides by the way! So… after some Googling, we signed up and took a quick 30 minute intro class. We passed with flying colors and off we go!
You can use Scoot for commuting to work, running errands or just scooting around town (my personal favorite!) All scoots come with helmets and don’t require a motorcycle license.
- Easy to find parking
- Fun way to see the city
- Not difficult to learn to drive
- Much faster than the bus
- Multiple Scoots at some locations (great for when you’re renting with someone else)
- Better for the environment (emits 2% of what a car emits when driving in the city)
- Only in SF
- Spotty app (shows locations that aren’t available)
- Few (very steep) hills in the city you cannot get up
- Not much available parking on the west side of SF
We love Scootin’ around San Francisco. Sure beats riding Muni…
Sign up HERE! See you on the road.
