If you’re looking for a fresh start when it comes to your fitness routine, there’s no better time than now! Seize the day (and the warmer season) with four of our favorite workouts that will keep you on your toes well through summer. 


Aerial Yoga + Fitness

Have you ever wanted to fly while looking fly? Earn your wings and seriously tone your muscles with an aerial class. Studios like AIR West Hollywood are more than just aerial yoga—their workouts will test your strength while defining gravity. Plus, you don’t have to be a frequent flyer to take advantage of the full-body benefits. With classes meant for all levels, you’ll get a hands-on lesson from instructors who bring fuse everything from Pilates to HIIT so you can find your flow, no mat required.  


Dance

You don’t have to have rhythm (or experience) to reap the benefits from a dance class. Just get ready, grab your sneakers, and sweat it out to some booty shaking songs. Newer boutique studios like 305 Fitness—with locations in NYC, Boston, Washington DC and LA—offer a live DJ, mood lighting and crazy cool workout classes. It’s all about burning calories to sick beats and bringing the club to the fitness classroom. 


Rebounding

Spring into spring with a rebounding class! Whether you’re a beginner or a pro-athlete, everyone can benefit from this full-body, muscle toning training workout that’s more than just your childhood nostalgia. Studios like TrampoLEAN utilize smaller trampolines and other accessories, including resistance bands, to help you focus on balance while getting your cardio on. Plus, rebounding classes are low-impact, so your joints won’t be hurting post-class!  


Outdoor Bootcamp / Circuit Training

Not Too Cheesy: Vegan "Cheese" Recipes That Taste Like The Real Thing

Recipes

Nutrition

We all love cheese. And if you don’t love cheese, well, you just haven’t found the right kind for you. If you’re unlucky like me, however, cheese does not like you. Thankfully, we live in 2020, where plant-based cheese recipes are alive and well.

I have been dairy-free for a few years, and cheese is truly the food group I miss the most. As much as we try, we sometimes just can’t get vegan cheese to taste like the real thing. So, I recruited my dairy-loving, cow-consuming friends to be my taste-testers. Their brutal honesty helped me create some “fake” cheese that can actually compete with the real stuff.

Goat "Cheese" Ball

Did you know you can make mouth-watering “fake” cheese with macadamia nuts? Yes, macadamia nuts. If you’re craving that creamy consistency but your stomach isn’t down for dairy, try out this recipe inspired by Simple Vegan Blog
