JAMIE LOVES in January…
January is one of my favorite months; I love having the feeling of a fresh start into a new year! January is a great month to get in shape, especially after all the holiday parties and festivities.
We are so fortunate to live in the Valley of the Sun, which has the best hiking, biking and studios for Pilates and Yoga. This month I would like to introduce our readers to my favorite local studios …
Located in a refurbished factory building on 7th Street in Phoenix, SuTRA offers a diverse array of yoga, Pilates, and Skullpt classes, which combines Pilates, Ballet Barre, yoga, and athletic conditioning into one revolutionary hour, for students of all levels of fitness.
I love the environment — teachers and the Chop Shop Café, featuring locally roasted coffee and espresso drinks and a fully stocked raw juice bar. My favorite is the blood orange lemonade!
They offer drop-in rates to unlimited packages, so please visit the studio’s website for New Year specials and a full schedule at sutramidtown.com.
The Body Lab
SPX Fitness is the fitness regime of choice by Hollywood’s elite and professional athletes. SPX, simply put, is the most innovative and aggressive approach to full-body conditioning, combining Pilates, cardio and strength training. This workout, in just 50 minutes, is so great you will feel the results in places you didn’t even know had muscles!
They offer single sessions for $30 to unlimited monthly packages for $239. Please check out The Body Lab’s website regarding pricing and schedules at thebodylabaz.com.
At One Yoga
This studio has great instructors and a variety of classes (over 80 a week) for the beginner to the advanced Yogi. I love that this studio offers so many options for classes from flow to Ashtanga to Tai Chi. At One Yoga takes this 5,000-year-old practice of Yoga and fuses it with modern elements to practice in. Drop in on a class for $18 to unlimited membership of only $119 month. Visit atoneyoga.com for full schedule and pricing.
When looking for all the necessary workout gear I love lululemon! Lululemon is technical athletic apparel for yoga, running, dancing and any kind of movement.
I love that the fabrics they use are quick to dry and move with your body. Lululemon has strong ties with the local community, and they host Sunday yoga, which gives you the opportunity to try new instructors and get introduced to the studio where they teach. It’s a great way to find your favorite instructor without having to bounce around to a new studio every week.
The following are my favorite items from lululemon! Visit lululemon.com for locations.
|Groove Pant: $98
|Swiftly Tech Short Sleeve: $58
Wishing everyone a healthy and happy 2012!
