Everything fitness, from must-try classes to new athleisure lines. 

A new app combines Tinder and Fitbit: The dating app Once uses human matchmakers to pick one potential date for you daily. Unlike Tinder, you’re not forced to swipe through thousands of choices; and Once uses a fitness tracker to measure your match’s heartbeat to see if they’re actually into you. via Once.

A fitness fest is coming: If music festivals are a bit much for you, consider the W Downtown’s Fitfest, instead. It’s two days of panels with wellness influencers, including the co-founder of Well + Good, the founder of Sakara and a master instructor at Soul Cycle. The second day will have two hours of fitness classes, including an hour-long boot camp. via Eventbrite.

Celebrate fall in the Meatpacking District: While Meatpacking might make you think of nightclubs and Sex and the City episodes, for one day it will be the best place to take Instagram photos. If you’re a tad jealous of your friends who are always apple picking, simple snap from there instead while wearing a flannel shirt. Harvest Fest will have snacks, crafts and live music all day. via Meatpacking District.

Plié for pink: Get a ballet body and give back at Xtend Barre Brooklyn’s charity barre camp class. The cost of the class will be donated to 5 Under Forty Foundation, an organization that provides funding for women in New York under 40 who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or tested positive for the BRCA gene. You’ll even get your very own pink grip socks while you’re at it. via Xtend Barre.
