Indoor Cycling Studio Personal Tour

Last week, I was lucky enough to receive a tour of Boston’s first indoor cycling studio, Recycle Studio. The tour was hosted by Megan Lieberman, their teacher, graphic designer, blogger, front desk and back-end employee – essentially Recycle’s own jack-of-all-trades. Recycle has two locations, and I visited the one in the South End.

For those who may be new to these fitness classes, let me be your tour guide and show you what it’s like to attend an indoor cycling class at a small studio. This way, you’ll know just what to expect.

Mindful Mornings

Mornings can be rough, especially for naturally late sleepers like myself. I find it hard to resist reaching for my iPhone to check emails or Instagram seconds after my alarm sounds, although I know this routine isn’t a great way to kick off my day. I saw this slideshow on Well+Good NYC that gave me some ideas for positive alternatives that allow me to take some tech-free time for myself before craziness ensues. Many people say they don’t have time in the mornings (just like they don’t have time to work out), but I think it’s important that we find 10 minutes or so to set our intentions and just breathe.
