Friday’s Food & Fitness: Studio 360 Cycling + Yoga

Hello my friends!  It’s time again for Friday’s Food & Fitness! Woo hoo!  Let’s jump right to it!

FOOD

We had some amazing eats on our vacation in Vieques.  I love fresh seafood and fruit and smoothies and basically anything that screams warm weather.  On Friday night we indulged in a Valentine’s Day menu that was to die for: watermelon & feta salad, grilled salmon with foie gras and some chocolate dessert that I cannot recall but it was so yummy!

One night the Hubs and I decided to create our own tapas menu by ordering everything off the menu.  Man, it was delicious.  Why are the appetizers always so much better than the mains?!  We ended the meal with passionfruit cake because it’s my favorite!

FITNESS

Last week I was invited to try out Studio 360 a hybrid cycling and yoga studio located in Murray Hill.  What makes Studio 360 unique from other cycling studios and boutique fitness studios in general is that Studio 360 is committed to giving back to the community.  One dollar per student is donated to charity every class.  Their motto is that “it takes just one revolution to make a change.”  For more information on their charities, you can click here

I was super excited because the class is only 10 blocks from my work.  Score!  I made it there with plenty of time to spare and was greeted warmly by Studio 360 staff.  They were really quick and efficient with the check-in process plus the features of the studio were explained to me in detail.  I hate going to a studio for the first time and not knowing where everything is that I need or having a rushed explanation leaving my head spinning.

One feature that I love about Studio 360 is that they offer free spin shoes and water.  I can’t tell you how annoyed it makes me to sign up for a $30 plus class and then have to pay for shoes, especially when spin shoes are required for the class.  Plus, I never have the two or three dollars I need on hand, which means a trip to the ATM.  I need convenience!

 

After getting ready for class, a staff member held me get set up on my bike.  What is really cool about the set up at Studio 360 is that they actually record your bike settings so it is on file for the next time you take class.  Love that. 

I had a little bit of a hard time clipping in because the bikes were a little different than what I was used to but luckily the staff was there to help me out.  I am sure it is something I would get used to since I normally don’t have a problem clipping in. 

Each bike was equipped with a display panel that told you your resistance, RPMs and calories burned if you put in your weight.  I love having display panels like this because it helps me actually gauge my workout much better than “add on some resistance.”

Our instructor was incredibly knowledgeable.  I didn’t have a chance to ask her about her background but she was clearly a certified trainer, an avid cyclist or both.  She took us through some tabatas (so hard), mountains climbs, sprints and various other drills on the bike.  I honestly felt like this ride would make me a better cyclists and definitely more fit!  She was great at coaching us through the drills, my only suggestion would be for her to get on her bike more and ride with us.  I am such a visual person that sometimes I have a hard time following verbal instructions and I like to have the visual reinforcement.

Now the best part of this whole experience was the class I attended is Studio 360’s Signature Series class.  This class is 40 minutes of cycling followed by 20 minutes of yoga.  I was absolutely dead after the 40 minute spin class and the 20 minutes of yoga was so blissful.  Our yoga instructor took us through several restorative and stretching poses that were absolutely perfect after a strenuous workout.  This is a complete mind/body experience at its best!

In addition to their Signature Series hybrid class, Studio 360 offers regular cycling and yoga classes.  They also recently introduced bootcamp classes.  Classes are $27 each and class packages and monthly unlimited are available.   I have an exclusive discount code for all my lovely readers!  Enter B360 at checkout and you can get 20% off 5-pack, 10-pack or unlimited memberships!!

I had a great time at Studio 360 and I only wish they had some lunch time classes so I could head down there on my lunch break.  That would be heaven!  Thanks so much for the invite Studio 360! 

Readers, what was your favorite meal of the week?  Have you ever tried a hybrid class before?  What do you think of cycling plus yoga?

    Love the sound of that studio and really love the motto!! How great! I have never taken a hybrid class but I need more yoga in my life for sure!!!
    Puerto Rico looks so warm and amazing as I sit here looking out on a mountain of snow at Okemo in Vermont!!

    I LOVE the hybrid option. Yoga would be great after spin to loosen up tight hamstrings.

    I still want to try a spin class – the hybrid class sounds very interesting! I love to walk into a place and be greeted in such a nice manner and by knowledgeable people – that is the kind of place that I tend to want to go back even if it higher priced than other places!

    Um…THAT FOOD! I love vaca food – it’s like it almost…doesn’t count! Love the $1 donation idea – that would surely get me into class!

    Cute yellow top, Britt! I love spin class. I never heard of a hybrid studio before, but it’s a really cool idea. I’m not into yoga, but cycle in pilates would be or cycle and cross-fit would be fun options.

    Your birthday trip looked like so much fun! Happy belated birthday! 🙂

    Studio 360 sounds like a blast too. That’s so nice they provide you with free spin shoes!

    That Watermelon Salad and chocolate dessert look Aaaamazing! Yum! It also sounds like Studio 360 is awesome! Love it!

    I love the idea of the Yoga following the cycling. It seems like a good way to get everything in at once.

    You always have the most delish eats when you’re out. Yum!

    Wow, fitness is such BIG business there. I am always astonished at how much the places can get away with charging for 1 class. Here, people pay less that for a gym monthly membership with classes included. I don’t know of any spin class that requires cycle shoes. The instructors have them, but to charge in addition….well, like I said; everything is just so different.
