No matter how much you might enjoy a good run outside for its magical mind-clearing capabilities, there's no way around it—long runs can feel so long. Like, longer than The Bachelor's season finale long. But if you're training for an endurance race like a 10K or a half, and especially if you're training for the full 26.2, ditching those appointments with the pavement isn't an option.
Over the last 20 years, we've transitioned from counting calories to tracking macros, fearing fat to loving avocado toast and ignoring sugar to demonizing it. Now, after years in the making, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is unveiling a brand-new food label to better reflect what we've learned about the science of nutrition since the original nutrition label design was conceived decades ago.
Before you ask: mobility is not synonymous with flexibility.
Sure, if you’re committed to living a healthy lifestyle, you probably don’t skip out on your workouts—but what about your post-workout refueling routine? After all, proper nutrition after training has a huge impact on the results you see—whether you’re training for a marathon or building a more muscular body.
We know you’re already hooked on SoulCycle’s next-level endorphin rush, bumping beats (shout out to Beyonce for keeping us hype), and killer workouts. But now, your favorite OG fitness boutique has announced they’re offering an (ahem) spin on your go-to group sweat class.
Let’s be real. There are no shortage of ways to sweat in The Big Apple. You can hip-hop yoga in infrared heat at Y7. You can assault your legs on an old-fashion aerodynamic bike at ICE NYC. And you can even try Muay Thai in a luxury fitness studio at Hit House. You could say we’ve got options.
Countless businesses are created to help us deal with the hullabaloo of modern life: oxygen bars, wine bars, float tanks, and Netflix, to name a few. But now, New York City’s busy young professionals are adding a new a stress-busting practice to their wellness routine… meditating. And there’s no better place to chill than MNDFL.
It’s no surprise that New Yorkers have a hearty appetite for sushi. Poke bowls, sushi burritos, and sashimi burgers are trendier than green juice, afterall. But there’s one major thing missing from everyone’s favorite sushi bar in Manhattan — the fish. But before you turn your nose up — hear us out. We guarantee that Beyond Sushi’s fishless sushi rolls are the vegan treat you didn’t know you needed. So grab some chopsticks, and get your grub on.
Since its opening in 2016, Rouge Tomate Chelsea has been a go-to date spot for New Yorkers thanks to its nutrient-dense dishes, extensive wine lists, and its location in the landmarked carriage house in Chelsea. (Yep, it’s ’grammable).
New York’s yoga scene is sizzling. You can pose and punch at Box + Flow, find your abs at CorePower, or get a little woo-woo at Sky Ting. And now you can flow to hip-hop, downward dog to Drake, and bend to Beyoncé—in two new neighborhoods, might we add—thanks to none other than Y7.
In NYC, we know a thing or two about fitness. Walking is our favorite mode of transportation. We love our SoulCycle as much as we love brunch. And if Sex and the City were to take place now, you bet the foursome would be trading in their stilettos for an athleisure look.
More and more New Yorkers are choosing The Strand over Barnes & Nobles, Monster Cycle over SoulCycle, and The Butcher’s Daughter over Au Bon Pain… all in the name of authenticity.
