Welcome to our weekly roundup of wellness news we’ve spotted and reported throughout the week. Our Page Six!

Adidas in Brooklyn. Racked.com reported that Adidas will open its first Brooklyn store at the Barclays Center in September. In addition to its usual fitness apparel, the 4,000-square-foot space will peddle official Nets’ merchandise. Jay-Z sightings will be free.

Work out in a chair. Chaise 23, a new workout studio that opened its doors on Tuesday, offers group-fitness classes on a modernized version of the oft-forgotten Pilates Chair. Trust us, it’s no La-Z-Boy.

skinnygirl bars
Bethenny's newest Skinnygirl product.

Bethenny bars. The former Housewife of NYC has put her name on yet another product, Skinnygirl On-the-go Bars, which she says are for “busy individuals in need of a quick and healthy bite to eat.”  Except, there are approximately four different kinds of sugar in them (which add up to 11 grams per bar). Thanks, but no thanks.

Starbucks is juicing. Starbucks opened its first juice bar, Evolution Fresh, this week in Bellevue, Washington, and will soon stock cold-pressed juices in its stores. But the company’s having a hard time spelling the word “vegetable.” Seriously.

What’s for supper? The healthy-ish farm-to-table restaurant Brooklyn Commune launched a supper club this week, the first of which will happen on March 31. It’s no replacement for 4-Course Vegan, but the spot says it will be hosting vegetarian and vegan nights for the veggie-loving set.

Tangerine time. Sephora launched a pop-up shop in the MeatPacking district this week to promote the product line the store created using Pantone 17-1463 Tangerine Tango, 2012’s “color of the year.” They’ll teach you how to wear it, then, head home and recreate it with natural products.

Flywheel flashback. Beloved trainer Lacey Stone left us last year for sunny L.A., but she’s visiting next weekend and will be teaching five classes at various Flywheel locations. You can book the classes on Flywheel’s site starting March 25.
