Getting Your Sweat on in Boston

Boston is a great place to sweat it out. Not only are old apartments hard to air-condition, making every place i've ever lived a sauna in the summer (just detoxing) but we have some pretty great fitness options. Here are some of my current favorites:

RYDE & Sweat and Soul Yoga. 2 class, 2 studios, 1 location. SASY yoga is fantastic-hot vinyasa flow set to hiphop. I'm no yoga purist so this is one of my favorite ways to stretch it out. RYDE is a 45 min cycle sweat session, in a dim room, jams pumping and with a bike that you steer-hence engaging your core the entire time. + they add weights and pushups. on a bike. to power up your arms.

Babtise
The mothership of hot yoga.  you'll sweat and sweat and stretch and stretch and feel amazing. Best in the middle of winter, when it's so cold this is the only way to get your bone warm

Exhale Core Fusion
Make your legs shake, in the most zen of locations.

Pure Barre-Newton and soon to be Newbury st
Home of the elusive "ledge" (those lovely perky bums) you never thought 3 # weights could hurt so bad. In between ballet and pilates it has a cult following for a reason


Good ol' running: along the esplanade, trails at Middlesex Fells, or dodging masshole drivers on the streets (my personal favorite)

If I liked treadmills or had cash to throw around I'd totally get a gym membership at Sports Club LA or Equinox. best of the best.

Next on my to-try list: Crossfit, South Boston Yoga, Bar Method downtown, I'll report back soon!
What form of sweat are you crushin on right now?

I have never done a Barre class. Not so sure I am graceful enough for that!
