NoMad is home to some of NYC’s hottest gyms and fitness classes. Find the perfect one for you and break that boring routine!
We all know it’s a fight to stay fit. Sure, there are plenty of healthy food options around us. Still, there seems to be twice as many delicious, greasy, fatty, caloric temptations.
If you’re like me you need to go to the gym right after or right before work. That little pit stop at home first is always a workout killer. Once my butt hits the couch, it’s lights out, and no amount of guilty entries into the MyFitnessPal app will change that.
Most get very bored with standard lifting or cardio routines. When you do the same thing over and over you can feel yourself plateau, or just get so bored you lose motivation. For example, simply adding a yoga class into the mix can help keep your workout routine fresh, like the free classes we give our members by Bellavita 360.
Lucky for you, there are plenty of gyms around Nomad that can keep a spring in your step and refresh your workout routine.
