Ah, New Year’s resolutions – they give you a great feeling of starting fresh, and having a whole new year ahead of you. And you do! But I think we all know how easy it is to fall of the wagon with them – especially when they’re resolutions to exercise and eat healthy! So I’m starting a mini-project this month to discover what’s fun and or/delicious about healthy living and healthy eating downtown to help all my friends, and myself, keep up with our resolutions! I’m going to try out the gyms and the healthier dishes on restaurant menus, and share everything I find with you all! And if you’ve got places you want me to visit, just let me know!
OK, first up – I’m starting with fitness!
What: Goodlife Downtown
Where: 7th floor, 201 Portage
What’s awesome about it: Funnily enough, the “where” is also the “what’s awesome” here. And I don’t just mean that the Portage & Main location is super-convenient for a lunchtime run. It’s the fact that it’s the whole 7th floor of the 201 Portage building – that means it’s got a fantastic view, and they work it! The spin class has big floor to ceiling windows along the side that give an amazing views to help keep you feeling good when your legs start to feel like they’re going to fall off. The room for their classes is the same – think doing yoga or cardio gazing over the rooftops of downtown. But the treadmills are the best of all – they’re all arranged right up against the windows that overlook Portage & Main. Running in the sky? Yes please! Makes it MUCH easier to keep on going back.
Next up – I’m going to try some outdoor cardio! 🙂
