Unlocking Your Mindbody: How to Use Your Mindbody App to Find a New Workout

The last few months have posed quite the challenge for fitness junkies all over the world. What used to be as simple as waking up early to go to your favorite sunrise yoga class or hitting the gym after work to maintain physical fitness has unfortunately come to an abrupt halt. For most of us, our fitness routines have been put to the test as we learn to embrace this “new normal” of WOFH (working out from home).   

Even though COVID-19 has forced us to change up how we get a sweat sesh in, we’ve also been presented with a great opportunity to redefine the way we commit to our wellness routines. Luckily, the simplicity modern technology affords us these days gives us a ton of options to stay fit and healthy right in the comfort of our own homes.  

Here’s how you can use the Mindbody app to freshen up your workouts: 


Take a class from anywhere in the world—literally 

While you may be missing out on the in-studio experience (trust me, I get it!), the Mindbody app enables you to take a class from any studio, no matter the distance. Whether you’re fixing to keep it local and check out places within your area or interested in a virtual workout 500 miles away, your options are endless. With 91% of group fitness studios making their classes available through live stream or video-on-demand, you can work out at any studio of your choosing.  

Finding a virtual class in your area or in another city is simple with the Mindbody app. Simply log into the app and access virtual classes directly from the home screen.

Search Anywhere

Whether you’re fixing to keep it local or interested in a virtual workout 500 miles away, your options are endless.

Try that one class you’ve been meaning to check out 

With virtual classes dominating the workout scene right now, you have more access to different types of fitness classes than ever before. Maybe you live in a town where certain workouts aren’t available quite yet—or maybe you tend to be “set in your old ways” when it comes to your fitness choices and you never can get around to trying something new. I’ll be the first to admit there are certain classes I may have avoided in the past (I'm looking at you, HIIT) because I’m more of a yoga fan and enjoy being able to go at my own pace and take breaks when I need to. 

We all get in our own head when we’re experiencing something for the first time—especially when it comes to a workout class. However, being in the privacy of your own home, you have the luxury of setting your own pace and taking rest/water breaks when you need to. Plus, tons of studios have Intro Offers for new clients, so you can try out new studios and classes for less.


Connect with new studios and teachers near and far 

You know what they say—variety is the spice of life. Well, the same can be said about your workout routine. If you’re looking for another way to mix up your fitness journey, try taking a class from a different studio or teacher than you normally would. Not sure if you’ll vibe with a certain studio or teacher? No problem. You can learn about a studio and get to know their teachers all within the Mindbody app.  

Here’s a fun tip: Are your virtual game nights or weekly House Party check-ins with friends getting stale? A fun way I’ve been staying connected with friends during quarantine is by jumping into classes my friends have on their weekly rotation—whether they live in another state or just down the street.  

Even though the in-studio experience feels like an activity of the distant past, the Mindbody app makes it easy to stick to your fitness goals, stay sane, and support your favorite studios, too. With the ability to browse and book virtual classes anywhere, anytime, you can find the right workout for you whenever you need it. And let’s be honest, a good sweat is something we all REALLY need right now.

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!
