What We’re Sweating this Week
This week we’re talking exercise – our favorite fitness classes, workout studios, how to snag the best deal on a class – the whole shebang.
Say ‘Hi’ to Intuitive Exercise
We can’t talk about our favorite workout classes without first addressing our relationship with exercise in the first place. Let’s be honest, we often group exercise in with the pressures and extremes of calories, food, body image, and appearance. This can really put a damper on us enjoying and reaping the mental and physical benefits of movement. Intuitive Exercise, in short is tuning in to your body to embrace movement that makes you feel good and you enjoy doing. It also touches on letting go of any guilt or pressures you feel around exercise. Doesn’t sound too bad, huh?
Here are a few people we think say it best:
Having a Structure of Spontaneity with Movement – Kylie Mitchell, MPH, RDN, LD
Intuitive Exercise – Constance Weissmuller
Why You Should Give Intuitive Exercise A Try – Holly Goodwin
How I Found the Right Fitness Routine For Me – Jordan Younger
Food Psych Podcast: Intuitive Exercise & Overcoming Depression – Christy Harrison, MPH, RD, CDN
What We’re Sweating: Boxing
NYC always has new workout classes popping up and this Summer we’ve found our new favorite, boxing. These are our top picks 👇👇👇
Rumble Boxing – NYC’s newest studio addition has locations in Flatiron and Noho. There’s always a good playlist & a high chance of a celeb sighting (we took a class with Justin Bieber once!)
Overthrow Boxing – You’ll feel like a professional boxer in this old-school style studio. They teach actual boxing technique, combinations and footwork. Julian is our favorite instructor.
Box & Flow – The perfect balance of flow and fight! You’ll start off with intense rounds of boxing and end with a restorative yoga flow.
