We recap everything earth-shattering that happened in health and wellness this week: January 3–10, 2013.
BOUTIQUE FITNESS NEWS
Cyc officially opened its New York cycling studio inside David Barton gym at Astor Place on Wednesday, January 8.
Fly Fitness NYC opened near Penn Station, with a schedule that includes pole dancing, hoop fitness, aerial silks, contortion, and yoga.
Astoria got its first boutique cycling studio, Simply Cycle Astoria, which opened on Steinway Street between Thirtieth and Thirty First Avenues.
CityRow opened in Union Square, with three types of interval classes based around the rowing machine.
And, taking a break from opening a new studio this week, SoulCycle partnered with Shopbop to launch a capsule collection of its cult fashion line, now available for purchase on the popular shopping site.
East Coast juice-and-food bar Elixir Juice shuttered its only Los Angeles location, just one year after opening.
While Liquiteria announced it’s taking over the shuttered Gray’s Papaya location in the West Village and will also open two Union square locations in the next six months.
Franklin Becker’s The Little Beet is now open in Midtown West. The fast casual restaurant serves dishes made with local, seasonal, and organic produce and meats, and many menu options are gluten-free.
Brooklyn Running Co. introduced “Operation House Call” for the month of January, which allows too-cold-to-go-out Brooklyn residents to order running sneakers from the shop and have them delivered via bicycle for free (they’ll even do an on-the-stoop fitting). Just try not to pass the delivery guy when you’re out running. He might be pissed.
