Break Out of Your Comfort Zone with These 4 Fun Workouts

Fitness
Yoga
Cardio
Motivation

With spring just around the corner, it’s time to gain a fresh perspective on your post-New Years workout goals. If your fitness routine is becoming less glow-tastic and more yawn-worthy, we’ve got four workouts (and studios where you can find them) to get you moving—no experience required! Exercise your right to fight through that comfort zone with a little guts and a whole lot of glory.

Jump on it!

The higher you fall, the harder you bounce. Dare to jump with a trampoline-based workout! Taking your fitness to new levels, trampoline-based workouts  feature heart-pumping low-impact cardio and they can improve balance and coordination. Plus, if our girl crush Margot Robbie swears by rebounding, count us in.

Studios like trampoLEAN in New York City give you your own jumping device to move, groove, and burn those calories on. Now, who’s ready to bounce?

Get low + let it flow.


What happens when those Saturday night shake-your-tailfeather jams pour through the speakers of a yoga studio? Pure booty muscle shaking bliss. It’s time to kick your flow up a notch with a hip-hop yoga class! As the beat drops and your downward dog gets a little deeper, let your worries will melt away to the sound of music. 

At Y7 Studio, you’ll get all the Zen of candlelight yoga but with the intensity of heat, strength and hard beats. Featuring some pretty sweet bi-coastal locations, Y7’s “We Flow Hard” is not just a mantra, it’s a way of freaking life.

Earn your wings.


If “I believe I can fly…” is going through your head right now, then you’re on the right track. You might have heard all about the benefits of aerial yogamajor ab work, zero-impact, living your gymnast dream—but what’s better than getting your swole on while defying gravity? Plus, even the beginner poses make for some Instagram-worthy images your whole crew will be asking you about.  

Studios like AIR offer friendly, intimidation-free atmospheres with hands-on instructors for all skill levels. With locations across five states, AIR takes your workout to the next level by blending elements of conditions, Pilates, ballet and HIIT to light your muscles on fire… while looking effortless of course.

Pole position.

No, we aren’t talking about race cars. We’re talking about an empowering pole fitness workout session.  It’s about time you take your muscles (and your self-confidence) for a spin. One of these classes will not only test your upper and lower body strength; it will help you love your body even more and heal chronic pain. Who doesn’t love new moves that make you stronger—physically and emotionally? People even think pole dancing should be an Olympic sport, and we can get behind that. 

Studios like Pole Fitness Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada offer a selection of seductively sweat-inducing strengthening classes, like bootcamp, gogo dancing, kickboxing and more!

Whether it’s rebounding, hip-hop yoga, aerial or pole fitness, the Mindbody app has thousands of options to refresh your workout and add extra excitement to any fitness routine.

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  
 

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.  

Looking for more businesses to support? ClassPass has also created a list of Black-owned business to check out all year-round. While both of these lists are a great start to get you familiar with many of the Black-owned businesses either in your neighborhood or around the globe, we have only scratched the surface. We'd love to keep these lists growing.If you have any businesses you'd like to see on this list, click here to submit a Black-owned business we should be highlighting as well!
