New Year’s Resolutions

’Tis the season for New Year’s resolutions!

One of the most popular New Year’s pledges people make is leading a healthier lifestyle. If you’re among the many who are entering 2019 with a renewed commitment toward your health, you’re in luck—Brooklyn is brimming with exciting ways for local residents to work out, eat healthy and have some fun along the way.

For those interested in fitness gyms, Brooklyn NY provides plenty of options. Body Elite Gym is a great choice for those who want a combination of structured and unstructured workouts. The venue provides four floors of equipment to help visitors work out at their own pace. It also features a full schedule of classes, including everything from Zumba to kickboxing to cycling. Another of the fitness gyms in Brooklyn NY is Blink Fitness Park Slope. The gym provides more than 80 pieces of cardio equipment and 50 strength-training options. Gym-goers can enjoy a huge free-weight area, as well as spaces for kettle bells, battle ropes and much more. Blink offers personal training as well as several levels of membership, based on your needs. Ladies looking for fitness gyms in Brooklyn NY may want to consider The New Body Project, the area’s only bootcamp studio for women. Classes focus on high-intensity interval training, as well as a range of health and wellness programs.

Fitness gyms in Brooklyn NY also offer members some more unique opportunities to break a sweat. Brooklyn Boulders Gowanus features 22,000 square feet of rock-climbing space, with structured climbing classes as well as other workshops, including yoga and interval training. The space aims to make working out fun and social, with frequent art, music and networking events. Aline Pilates is another option for those looking to build some new skills in 2019. The studio teaches the basics of pilates, as well as offers more advanced classes for those who are more experienced.

While there are some great fitness gyms in Brooklyn, our 363 Bond Street residents can improve their fitness right from the comfort of their home. Our Gowanus apartments feature a state-of-the-art 363 FIT gym featuring Precore machines, Peleton spin bikes, and free weights. Just imagine how hard it is to getting motivated to go to the gym – let alone having to also get motivated to go out in the harsh winter conditions to trek to the gym. At our Gowanus Brooklyn apartments the gym is right at your door step. And it even features a yoga studio with a great space to continue your practice and take classes.

Healthy living isn’t just about hitting the gym, but rather is a product of exercise and diet. Brooklyn residents don’t have to travel far from home to get plenty of healthy items to stock their fridges. Park Natural Foods is a family-owned shop featuring a wide array of organic produce and grocery items. Locals can also enjoy the convenience of the neighborhood Whole Foods, which offers plenty of options for making some tasty yet guilt-free recipes. As an added bonus, the shop features electric vehicle charging stations, wind turbines and solar panels to make your healthy-food experience also a green one!

Cheers to 2019 and your New Year’s resolutions!
