I have never been a fan of working out. I’m still not really a fan of working out. Sweating, being out of breath, all of that. . .nope nope nope.
The only time I can actually work out is if I go with a partner to a group class or to yoga. If I were to go to the gym by myself, I’d probably just end up walking slowly on the treadmill for thirty minutes while watching an episode of Friends (and not breaking a sweat).
See, I’ve been wanting to get some exercise in this year ever since I cancelled my gym membership but just wasn’t sure where to look. NYC has a ridiculous amount of exercise options (at even more ridiculous prices) and I didn’t know where to start. So the collaboration offer happened at the best moment.
The Yogaworks studio in Soho is a huge space. It doesn’t seem like it, since it’s right in the middle of the craziness that is Chinatown and Soho, but once you climb the stairs and enter into the second floor door, it’s huge. High ceilings, plenty of amenities (water, feminine products, yoga mats, athletic wear) and anything you could need. The bathrooms are large and with many lockers and the instructors are all super sweet. There’s even a small area to hang out in after you’re done with classes.
The rooms where the classes are conducted are large. The windows are almost floor to ceiling so it really lets in a lot of light and the classes that happen during sunset are just so beautiful to be in.
But let’s get to the fashion part. . .I was a little hesitant to order from BooHoo, since I’ve never ordered from them before. However, the prices are fair and the clothing is super cute. I ordered a matching NYC legging and bra top. The leggings were pretty thin (perfect for yoga) as was the top so I wouldn’t recommend walking around the city in just this, but to work out in, it was perfect. I also loved the green mesh zip up, which paired so well with the whole look. I also grabbed a cropped baby blue sweatshirt, which was a great topper for after you’re done with class and want to just run home.
