How to have your healthiest birthday ever—for free

The best things in life are free, right? Happiness, love, rainbows— and, hey, the occasional coconut milk smoothie wouldn’t hurt.

While most of the free things in wellness are reserved for celebrities, fitness instructors, and fashion editors (it’s true), there’s one day of the year when everyone is treated like a queen: your birthday.

From green juice and a zen yoga class in the morning to your very own eyebrow touch-up, let your birthday be your official day to treat yourself—all for free.

How? We’ve rounded up a selection of b-day bounty. Some of the freebies below require you to join a rewards program, but most just ask for your email. So all you’re really doing is adding another newsletter to your morning mix (which you can opt out of at any time).

Scroll down to see all of the healthy picks, to make your birthday the best—and cheapest—day of the year.

Flywheel

No better time to sweat than on your birthday, right? Turn it into a two-a-day with CorePower Yoga, plus a free class at Flywheel. Although there’s nothing (visible) on the site about the free class, there are many bloggers who swear by—and have completed!—a birthday “fly-for-free” ride. They say simply call your local studio, have proof of your birthday when you arrive, and you can too fly for free.

Refuel from your big day with a delicious and nutritious salad from Sweetgreen. If you register in the free app at least two weeks before your birthday—and spend at least $100 within the year (which is really about 10 salads)—they’ll send you a $10 credit to use within the month. (But why waste it on a regular day?)
