Fitness Studios in Atlanta | By @HealthyPeachGal
If you are in Atlanta for business or if you live here, Tamar Levy, from HealthyPeachGal, has some incredible recommendations on how to find great fitness studios in the city (and how to score some free classes as well!). Thank you for collaborating with the Blog, Tamar!
If you've been following me for a while now, you may have caught on to my love for a free class. I've always had a passion for fitness, but never really enjoyed breaking the bank for it. On this post, I'm going to share with you some of my insider tips of how I navigate through the fitness world on a budget in Atlanta and when I travel.
The first thing is, I have been on Classpass since it first started in Atlanta. I don't have that many credits per month, but when I want to visit a studio that has a high cost for a class, I typically use my Classpass account.
Now, here are the things that I do in order to find great classes at a low cost. I'm warning you now, it can be tiresome, but if you don't want to do all of the work, don't worry I've got your back. Each month I will include a calendar with unique or free classes in Atlanta in my blog and I also have included a free class section on my Instagram highlights!
If you are on Classpass, before choosing a class (if you have never been to the studio before) check to see if that studio offers any first time specials! That way, you don't have to use your Classpass credit right away. I typically do this when I travel because I love trying studios in new cities. Also, studios are constantly training new instructors so keep your eyes peeled for community classes because they are FREE! I usually find these offers on their social media accounts or on the MindBody app. If you are a boutique studio lover like I am, coupon websites/apps like Groupon, Gilt and Hand-Picked Atlanta offer inexpensive class packs as well.
In addition to these options, there are organizations like the November Project ATL that offer weekly free outdoor classes. If those times don't work for you, you can check your local fitness clothing store like Lululemon or Athleta. They typically host free workout classes either in their stores or nearby!
If you still are on the hunt for free classes, there are even classes in parks like Piedmont Park and the Historic Old Fourth Ward Park. I have added most of these classes to my calendar, but the Beltline website is a great resource for this.
My most recent discovery for an inexpensive workout is using apps like Fit Radio. These instructors guide you through your workouts at the gym or even on an outdoor run. I've never been the best runner but have always enjoyed fitness outdoors so this has been a great option for me. They set the pace for you, offer motivation and the music rocks.
Lastly, I've noticed that summer is the best time for free workouts because of the great weather. Several studios offer classes at a green space or your local park. Make sure to check in with your favorite studio to see if they have caught on to this fun trend too!

Tamar Levy grew up enjoying fitness and a healthy lifestyle. She has been a pescetarian for 10 years and enjoys exploring the healthy restaurant scene in Atlanta and when she travels. She has a strong passion for fitness, but does so on a budget. There is not a workout that she won't try! You can most likely find Tamar trying the newest fitness studio and enjoying a smoothie afterwards. Tamar is so excited about how the fitness and wellness community in Atlanta has continued to grow so much!
No post acima a Tamar, do Instagram Healthy Peach Gal, dá dicas de como achar academias e estúdios que oferecem aulas gratuitas ou com desconto quando você estiver viajando.
Aqui segue um resuminho:
- Olhe no site Classpass. Eles sempre tem promoções para os primeiros dias de graça, ou 5 aulas de graça, e voce pode usar em diversas cidades – eu já usei em Atlanta, Miami, Washington DC e Nova York, e já fiz aulas de barre, spinning, entre outras. O problema é que voce precisa colocar um cartão de crédito e lembrar de cancelar antes deles te cobrarem.
- Em Atlanta, Groupon e Gilt funcionam bem. Eu acabei de comprar 3 semanas de yoga por $30 dólares. Então mesmo que voce estiver a passeio, compensa conferir os sites para ver se tem algum estúdio oferecendo promo.
- Segundo a Tamar, a Lululemon e a Athleta oferecem classes gratuitas por aqui (e em outras cidades) também. Olhe em “eventos” no site deles.
- Adorei a dica dela do aplicativo Fit Radio, nunca testei mas parece que tem algumas gravações de aulas e treinos de corrida para inspirar seu próximo workout.
