We recap everything earth-shattering that happened in health and wellness this week: February 15–21, 2014.
ART ON WHEELS
The Armory Show announced it will introduce limited-edition Citi Bikes featuring artwork from the fair’s 2014 commissioned artist, Xu Zhen, on March 5. Two of the bikes will be displayed at Piers 92 and 94 as artwork, and eight will be released onto the street for riders. We expect these beauties to be the most in-demand. Wave if you see us on one!
FITNESS AND YOGA BUZZ
Unpacking boxes of weights sure is a tough workout. Crunch opened a second Chelsea gym, on West 23rd Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenue, in a space that was previously a DavidBartonGym, and its very first gym across the river in Hoboken, New Jersey.
Brooklyn yoga studio Goodyoga announced it will open another location, this one in Williamsburg on the corner of Metropolitan and Grand on April 1. It will be its fourth, if you include its Wythe Hotel pop-up.
Throwback Fitness revealed it will open its first permanent studio in April at 31st Street and Fifth Avenue. Before, the rowing-based workout brand had been offering its classes out of Titan Fitness Studios in Chelsea.
Indoor cycling company Peloton launched an iPad app that will allow users on any at-home bike to stream live cycling classes into their living rooms.
Dance cardio company 305 Fitness announced it will be relocating its classes from Stepping Out Studios on March 1. Weekday classes will be at Complete Body on West 19th Street and weekend classes will be held at PMT Dance in Union Square.
Sun in Bloom’s anticipated new take-out restaurant in Tribeca is officially open, on the corner of Church and Reade Streets. (And the new space will stay true to its name with lots of sun streaming through its glass facade.)
Dig Inn Seasonal Market opened a new location in Morningside Heights on Wednesday, with a pay-what-you-want day where all food proceeds went to charity. The Columbia University-adjacent location is the healthy food purveyors’ seventh New York shop.
Juice giant BluePrint launched an app that provides cleanse support, green juice mapping, and more.
New York’s Restaurant Week kicked off on February 17, and the prix-fixe dining campaign used a kale-centric campaign to encourage diners to participate.
