How I Stick to My Fitness + Wellness Routine

Cardio
Fitness
Recovery
Beauty
Salon
Dance

One of my resolutions for 2019 was to focus on being healthy and taking care of myself. For me, that meant drinking lots of water, getting a good 7-8 hours of sleep every day, making healthy choices, and having a regular workout routine. If you're like me, you may find that sticking to one kind of fitness routine can get boring and repetitive, which can lead to taking long breaks or worse abandoning it altogether.

Since I love trying new and different ways to workout, the MINDBODY app came to my rescue! With so many fitness studios around me to discover, it’s also a huge plus that I can keep up with my routine even when traveling by booking classes wherever I go! 

The app takes away the hassle of figuring out schedules, pricing, and the process of booking classes at individual studios. And it's not just fitness – you can also explore hundreds of beauty, spa, and wellness centers in your area.

From a cardio dance class to cryotherapy, let me take you through a few experiences I’ve discovered through the MINDBODY app

BKBX BOSTON

What I Booked: Skills - Joint Effort 

Offering workout routines that are adventurous and fun, I decided to try out BKBX – a one-of-a-kind adventurous sports training studio. I attended the skills-based training class and loved that they turn exercise into a game, making it so much more exciting and effective.

305 FITNESS

What I Booked: CARDIO

Nothing motivates me more than dancing. So, I was really looking forward to trying out the 305 Fitness cardio dance class and boy did I have fun. One hour of high-intensity dance moves that were easy to follow while a live DJ blasted some sick beats made this my favorite workout!

BKBX BOSTON

What I Booked: Cryotherapy 

When I found out that the BKBX recovery room offers cryotherapy, I knew I had to come back and give it a try. It was a chilling experience, to say the least! Don’t know what cryotherapy is? To give you an idea, it means standing naked in a chamber where the temperature drops to -240 degree Fahrenheit for three minutes. You might be asking, why would I do that to myself? It felt great after a challenging workout, although my body was numb for a few minutes.

EXHALE BOSTON

What I Booked: Exhale HIIT 

This non-stop 30-minute high-intensity training class was the perfect way to tone and strengthen my body. It was an exhilarating workout, and I came out stronger from it. I’m even thinking of going back to take the famous Exhale Barre class – my body is ready for it.

What I Booked: Sports Pedicure 

It’s not all about fitness and training – taking care of your body is also part of a healthy lifestyle. So, after a grueling class, I treated myself to a Sports Pedicure at Exhale Spa. It was therapeutic and left me with two happy feet!

DEIFY LASER & BEAUTY LOUNGE

What I Booked: Bombshell Blowout 

On a surprise pre-birthday trip to New York City, I found myself in need for some TLC, and the MINDBODY app delivered. I browsed through several hair salons in the area and quickly booked my appointment to be ready for a night out with my squad!

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.
