Hellooooo, March!

Save for Monday (because I got in late from Miami Sunday night) I am back in morning workout mode this week. I wouldn’t say getting out of bed in the pre-dawn hours is easy, but it’s doable, so I’m doing it.

Here’s what went down:

Monday: Back to Peloton for a post-work spin class. The instructor played “Bug a Boo” by Destiny’s Child which is now the 2nd best musical moment of my fitness career. (I once heard Jai-Ho! at Physique 57 and so far nothing can surpass how much I smiled.) I was assigned a bike in the front row and eye contact with the instructor definitely made me work harder.

I read internet mumblings that I. AM. YOU.  was an A-grade yoga studio. My zone of existence for fitness doesn’t extend to Little Italy, so I’d never been.  I had plans to meet pal Tracey (creator of Kale with a Side of Fries) who lives downtown for a workout + dinner date and that was impetus enough for me to venture to Mulberry Street.

Let’s dig in because you’ll want to be prepared.

I tried a new studio last week, and I liked the class I took so much I signed up for the same class the following week on my phone on my way home.

Meet Crossfit Solace, she’s a unique beast.

Basically it’s an amenity-laden, very clean Crossfit studio that also offers yoga and sculpting classes. It breaks the Crossfit mold by attracting mostly ladies. Solace isn’t in a windowless basement like many Crossfit boxes, not does it smell like the inside of a old shoe. It’s also in Murray Hill so please infer the usual stereotypes.  It’s been on my list to try for a while because I like nice things.
