Many of us set a new year’s resolution or goal based around fitness and health. These goals maybe to loose weight, eat healthier, hit a milestone, or to stay in shape. For me working out and eating healthy is a lifestyle, something I enjoy doing. That is the key to keeping your resolution/goal, find something you enjoy doing. Now more than ever we have the opportunity to try a variety of studios making it easier for us to find something we love to do.
Last night I attended the Wellness Meet Up NYC’s talk with Amanda Kloots. I have been fan-girling Amanda for a while now, so when I heard about this meet and greet from my friend Katie, from Honestly Kate, I jumped at the chance to hear from my favorite fitness guru. Amanda is a former Rockette and Broadway performer, now she owns her own fitness companycalledThe Rope.Oh, and I should mention Amanda is also a fellow Ohioan! Anyway, Amanda teaches The Rope at Studio B, owned by Bandier, and also teaches privates– sign me up! What is The Rope? You guessed it, an entire workout dedicated to jump roping and using the rope as a tool for strength and flexibility. I have yet to grace this fitness class, but do want to try it soon.
Living in the hustle and bustle of the city that never sleeps, it only makes sense to have a place of serenity and calm for cynical, anxiety-driven New Yorkers. MNDFL Meditation is a studio for guided meditational classes. Beautifully decorated with an aroma of calmness and ease, the moment you step into one of the 3 studios in NYC you instantly feel better. MNDFL offers different types of guided meditations: breath, mantras, heart opening, emotion, movement, sleep, and more. Each with an intent to become more mindful, calm, and present.
Is it too late to work on my summer body? Maybe I should call this holidays are coming workout plan? I have taken a little break from my dance cardio classes to try some new and different workouts around New York. When I think of the classes that I have gravitated towards, only one word comes to mind. Powerful. I feel powerful. And each class has given me a different type of power; from strength to speed to personal. I feel a since of confidence. That I can do this, take on whatever challenge is a head of me. Which is evidently my new life’s motto (along with I am good enough). So if I can make it through these classes, push myself and still love them, then you can too!
