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.
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!
