Everything fitness, from must-try classes to new athleisure lines.
A Biathlon you’ll actually want to participate in: Wellness site Well+Good and athleisure purveyors Sweaty Betty are teaming up for their fourth annual Fitness Biathlon. The good news here is that there’s no running involved, if that’s not what you’re into. The event’s on Saturday, October 22 but tickets go on sale on September 26 and sell out faster than you can run a marathon. The event raises money for breast cancer awareness, and allows participants the opportunity to pair up two classes, including Lyons Den Power Yoga, Dancebody, Mile High Run Club, Aerospace, 305 Fitness and Tone House. via Well+Good.
Join an Orange is the New Black star to get fit: Dascha Polanco, better known as Dayanara Diaz on OITNB, is helping Blink Fitness cast real life people for their next ad campaign. Polanco is known for her body positivity, making her the perfect person to look for normals to represent Blink. Get your submission in now, since they’ve already received a few hundred. via Blink Fitness.
Yoga for elephants: Venture to the Bronx Zoo on Friday (so start traveling now) to practice yoga with elephants. The afternoon of free classes is to raise awareness about the 96 elephants killed daily for their ivory tusks. As depressing as that is, you’ll cheer up once you’re next to the sea lions. If the thought of working out next to a sea lion pup isn’t enticing, Tao Porchon-Lynch will be teaching at the age of 98…now that’s motivation. via 96 Elephants.
Travel to an adult-only resort in Fiji: Are you already over fall, and can’t stand the thought of ordering a Pumpkin Spice Latte? Journey to Savusavu, Fiji, a resort beloved by Russell Crowe, Edward Norton and Mike Myers. If you’re not ready to truly commit to a wellness retreat because you like carbs, Namale allows guests to indulge while visiting waterfalls, snorkeling and traveling through the rainforest. via Namale.
