Happy Friday, friends!  Did everyone have a nice Memorial Day Weekend?  What’d ya get up to?

A few things before we get started.  Feeling stressed? I enjoyed this post from The Blissful Mind on how to calm anxious thoughts. On a similar topic, my pal Ali Feller wrote an article for Well & Good that’s well worth a read: “The (very controllable) reason you might be more stressed than you were three years ago.”

Now, on to last week’s workouts:

Having a fitness habit in NYC can be pricey. So when I hear about free opportunities to experience high-end studios, I like to share the wealth. (Exhibit A, Exhibit B).

It’s almost summer time, and who doesn’t want to get outside, get sweaty and pay $0 for a fitness class?

Every Tuesday night from May through August some of the top fitness studios are offering free classes outside in the Meatpacking District through the Sweat Sessions series.

View the full schedule here.

Good morning. Excuse me as I hit you up with some random goodies. 

Last week the New York Road Runners announced the results of the NYC Marathon lottery. Did any one get in? I’m running NYC (and it’s my first ever marathon) this year and would love to know if any readers/friends will be training too. Let me know in the comments! I received guaranteed entry through the NYRR 9+1 program. If you didn’t get in, but want to run, there are two ways to still score a bib. Learn more here.

Anyone else love the Lego movies? Check out this awesome bike helmet that gives you Lego hair.  (I think Matt needs it.)

I am no newbie to the barre scene. I’m a devoted Physique 57 fan and I’ve tried all the major studios: Exhale, Barre3, Pure Barre, FlyBarre and Xtend Barre. I’ve even taken a barre class in PanamaBut recently, I’ve fallen hard for Pop Physique. This LA-based studio opened in NYC last year and I’ve had nothing but fabulous experience sinces.

Pop Physique, I love you. Let me count the ways.
