Fall is almost here and you know what that means—crisp, cool air and the return of binge-worthy TV shows. From an animated comedy starring the voices of Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph (hello Bridesmaids belly laughs) to some seriously explosive dramas, FOX is stepping it up for sweater season. 

That had us thinking: What does your favorite fall FOX show say about your workout? 

Whether you want to sweat it out to a beat post-singing competition or you need a little *extra* zen after that deep TV family revelation, here are four workouts that fit your favorite FOX show this fall: 

Prodigal Son

All new episodes Mondays at 9/8c on FOX 
Workout: Kickboxing 

A gifted criminal psychologist with a side of twisted genius? Count us in! Main character Malcolm Bright is on the hunt to solve murder cases, but his deeply disturbing family isn’t far removed. This darker drama has many compelling layers that keep our hearts racing (and stopping) at times. In the city that never sleeps, you have to have to be strong—both mentally and physically—to keep up with Malcolm's crazy world, that’s why kickboxing is the best full-body, muscle-burning workout for you. Now that’s how you give crime a one-two punch.

The Masked Singer 

All new episodes Wednesdays at 8/7c on FOX
Workout: Cycling

If you haven’t seen the first season of this top-secret singing competition, you are seriously missing out! It’s where music, fun and really ridiculous costume-clad celebrities collide. Featuring top tracks that will get you moving (and grooving) and a panel of hysterical judges, you never know what to expect once the beat drops. And if music is your thing, it’s time to bust a move and break a cardio-pumping sweat with an indoor cycling class. Animal masks not included.

Bless The Harts

Workout: HIIT

If you’re all about this new (and hilarious) comedy that focuses on a Southern family hoping to achieve the American dream, that means you appreciate a fighter—even in animated form. Like the Hart crew, we all know the struggle is real, which is why you appreciate a solid, strength training sweat session. While the workout isn’t meant to be easy, that post-class glow just makes you smile, right?

Almost Family 

All new episodes Wednesdays at 9/8c on FOX
Workout: Yoga 

Family drama always makes for a compelling TV series, but Brittany Snow and cast really define an unconventional dynamic in this new show. Thanks to a fertility doctor father who helped to conceive over a dozen children, this series focuses on this shocking news and how three main powerful female characters try to bond unexpectedly as sisters. Like these women, you need a self-care escape and a bit of solace—which you can find during your next yoga practice. Just let it go (and flow)!

When Salons Near Me Reopen: What To Expect From The First Visit Back

Beauty
Salon

Times are strange right now, as you all know. We’ve all heard the phrase “new normal” about a million times already, and all the while, things are still changing every day. If you asked me a few months ago what I’d be writing about right now, I would never have guessed I’d be interviewing someone about what it’s like to get a haircut

Nonetheless, we’re all doing our best to band together and help each other out right now. You may have noticed salons and spas offering messages of support, video tutorials for DIY beauty, and now, waitlists and announcements of reopening their doors. But as we all know, this isn’t the “old normal” anymore, and there will be changes. 

Here’s what you can expect to be different when you finally head back into the salon or spa:


Going the distance

As salons and spas begin to reopen, they’ll likely have to make changes due to new social distancing requirements. When you enter the space, you’ll probably see a complete rearrangement. Stations will be separated by at least six feet, and some might even be removed to allow for more space. Salons that don’t have that much space to spare are putting in temporary walls or partitions. 

On top of that, there may be fewer appointments scheduled at the same time (and definitely no walk-ins) to limit the number of people in the building. Say goodbye to waiting rooms and lobbies—you’ll likely be asked to wait outside or in your car until the exact start time of your appointment to prevent too many people crowding the front.


Keeping it clean

In addition to their increase in space, salons and spas will likely up their cleaning standards and procedures. We surveyed active consumers on the Mindbody app and learned that among the many changes beauty and wellness businesses can make upon reopening, following rigorous sanitization guidelines is the most important. You’ll probably see social posts or confirmation emails that outline new cleaning protocols, and you may notice some signage hanging around the building to reassure that the areas have been disinfected. Employees, and even guests, will be wearing masks and/or gloves, and you may even get a spritz of hand sanitizer at the door. According to Salon 124 Group, getting these supplies is turning out to be one of the largest obstacles for reopening.

In between each appointment, they’ll thoroughly disinfect the area before the next client arrives. Not only that, but each time you move to a new station (like from shampoo to haircut), they may also wipe down the station as soon as you get up to make sure it’s clean for the next guest. 
 

literally check ourselves out

Checking yourself out 

After a good haircut, we all want to check ourselves out. And now that we’re all more cautious of germs and bacteria, we also want to literally check ourselves out at the end of our appointments. Out of the various fitness, beauty, and wellness businesses on our platform, consumers feel most comfortable returning to hair salons, and 62.7% said hair cutting, coloring, styling, barbering, or blow-drying would be the first beauty service they book once restrictions are lifted. An extra, important layer of comfort can be added in the form of contactless payments.

Many salons and spas will likely be incorporating some sort of contactless checkout process to limit touch points. They may end up taking your payment information at check-in via text and removing the front desk, so you don’t have to interact with another person face-to-face.


Switching it up

All-in-all, you can expect changes—and lots of them. Whether it’s increased retail offerings, curbside pickups, virtual consultations, at-home appointments, or video tutorials, many salons and spas are getting creative with how they offer support to their clients. Above all, they want to help us feel beautiful, confident, and somewhat normal during this time—and for that, we’re so thankful.


Want to hear about a real salon experience firsthand? One of our own got her hair done at a reopened salon in Georgia—here’s how it went.
