A beautiful neighborhood yoga studio fronted by founder Yanti Amos, #TeamSB love to start the day with Earth Yoga’s 7am power yoga class. Yanti is also a #TeamSB Bloomingdale’s Ambassador, and perfectly represents Sweaty Betty's multi-sport focus as an established black belt in karate.
Sometimes the obvious choice is also the best choice. With its many paths of various difficulty levels to suit every runner, Central Park is a true urban oasis and the ultimate picture of clarity and freedom. An excellent time to run is when the park is closed to traffic, Monday through Friday from 10AM - 3PM and 7PM - 10PM, and also on the weekends starting at 7PM on Friday until 6AM on Monday. If you can't fit in a workout during these times, a runner's lane is always available.
An eclectic Alice in Wonderland themed tea house, this is one of #TeamSB's favourite haunts. First choice is the Indian Chai Black Tea, and fresh pastries are always available for a perfect pick-me-up. The weekend brunch is also a big hit.
Known for their amazing ice coffee, Birch Coffee always has an incredible sense of community with a free lending library and conversation cards to inspire fresh topics for those feeling interactive. Customers open to meeting new people can choose a card and approach strangers with the icebreaker of their choice.
This 63rd Street studio brings in hoards of Soul Cycle fans inspired by instructor Olivia Ward, who shot to fame after winning NBC’s Biggest Loser in the show’s 11th season. She successfully lost 50% of her bodyweight and is an inspiration to everyone on a mission to live more healthily.
The luxury fitness centre’s flagship club, Equinox Upper East Side is a bright and beautiful gym located in the historic Barbizon building just minutes from Central Park. Work out your own way with a plethora of cardio and strength equipment, swim laps in one of the numerous pools or take a time out in its full-service spa. The group fitness studios also house some of the best classes in the city – Pilates and Barre with Cathe Thompson are always fully booked.
Spin class at Soul Cycle or Equinox is best followed by a stop at Juice Generation on 63rd and Lexington. The Mr. Greengenes smoothie is an all-time favorite and you must try their Almond Butter Acai Bowl.
