Timely nuggets of information and ideas we want to share with you.

ClassPass is a monthly fitness membership that provides members with access to many different studios, gyms and other wellness options in over 2,500 cities worldwide. Why pay monthly for access to one gym when you can pay a monthly fee for access to many options?

ClassPass is priced as follows: $45 a month is 27 credits or 2-4 classes, $75 a month is 45 credits and 4-6 classes and $135 a month is 90 credits or 8-12 classes.  In the New York area, it means that a workout will cost between $13.00 – $20.00 per class which is significantly less than paying directly per class at the gym. Classes are not weighted equally, some use up more credits than others – a weekday morning class at 8 a.m. is worth more credits than a Sunday afternoon class. This gives users more flexibility in how to spend their credits. With over 5 million classes available each month around the world, ClassPass has become very popular.

I love music, concerts and music documentaries.  Netflix has made many music documentaries and here are a few of my favorites:

 20 Feet From Stardom, 2013, won an Oscar and is about the lives and aspirations of successful backup singers.  They sing for stars like the Rolling Stones and David Bowie and make fascinating subjects. It is rated PG-13.

Searching for Sugar Man, 2012, tells the story of a 1970’s Detroit singer-songwriter who became a cult hero in South Africa.  He didn’t know that he had fans and his fans didn’t know if he was alive or dead. It is rated PG-13.

Echo in the Canyon, 2019, was made for baby boomers who loved The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and the Mama’s and the Papas.  The music is wonderful.  It was put together by Jakob Dylan to commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Byrds’ cover of Bob Dylan’s “Mr. Tambourine Man” and to assemble musicians of his era who were inspired by the music from LA in the late 1960s.  It is rated PG-13.
