Fitness news that’s actually fun
With workouts on the brain, here?s a little help getting back on track--post holiday debauchery.
For the adventure-seeker Equinox?s new Animal Flow concept (free with membership) pushes traditional workout boundaries by combining body-weight exercises with primal movements made by wild animals (crocodiles, frogs, baboons). Yes, you?ll spend each session crawling, hopping and bounding, but you?ll feel more flexible and coordinated within weeks.
For the dance-lover Learn actual game-time routines from a Brooklyn Nets dancer at Crunch?s legit new hip-hop class: Center-Court Choreography (free with membership).
For the personal-trainer devotee Will Torres?s willRTB is a new eight-session, four-week class ($850) meant to ?Raise the Bar? of your tired routine. Ninety-minute classes couple strength training with a cardio workout and a little bit of martial arts. But act fast--it begins this week (254 W. Tenth St., Ste. B).
For the spin-obsessed It?s never been more convenient to get a ride in. Over the course of the year, SoulCycle is adding five more locations. (Noho debuted this past weekend at 384 Lafayette.) FlyWheel also recently unveiled its new flagship on the Upper West Side (466 Columbus Ave.), and newcomer studio Revolve just opened in Union Square (52 E. 13th St.), offering different classes for varying fitness levels.
