Event recap: Mercedes Club fitness adventure with One Medical


Mercedes ClubLast Wednesday night 90 Well+Good readers poured into the gorgeous Mercedes Club for evening of rooftop fitness. Nearly $2,500 was raised for Health Corps!

Hosted by One Medical, readers could choose between three fitness experiences: dance cardio with Anna Kaiser, rooftop spin with Uplift’s Stephanie Nieman, and cardio kickboxing with Jacklyn Atkins.

Readers also mingled with One Medical doctors and had the opportunity to get three months free when they sign up for a year-long membership to One Medical. The whole Well+Good community now has access to that offer. Use code WGNYCOM3 for three free months at One Medical!

Get Started
Anna KaiserAnna Kaiser, creator of AKT In Motion, along with two of her instructors, led a heart-pumping class. Music flooded the deck and several Mercedes Club members wondered if Anna could come back and teach regularly. Um, she more than a little busy with clients such as Kelly Ripa and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Stephanie Nieman spinningMeanwhile, out on the north deck Stephanie Nieman of Uplift and Revolve taught a dreamy spin class.

Cardio kickboxingIndoors, in the light-flooded group fitness room, Golden Glove champion Jacklyn Atkins taught cardio kickboxing. Jacklyn is one of the Mercedes Club’s regular in-demand teachers.

Dr. Ron EnglertOnce everyone was all blissed out from their fitness class, One Medical’s Dr. Ron Englert taught everyone a simple breathing exercise. He spoke briefly about cortisol levels (stress!) and the parasympathic nervous system, giving readers a sense of how holistic One Medical’s philosophy is.
