Best Summer Workouts to Try While You Travel

Fitness
Travel
Yoga
Cycling
Bootcamp
Kickboxing

Summer’s coming in hot. This travel season, don’t sweat the tourist traps—instead, check out a trendy summer workout or two at your next destination. Because sweating’s better with a purpose. 

Here’s what we found out about the fitness scenes in Denver, Boston, and San Francisco!

 

Denver gets downward dog.

Fitness isn’t just a hobby in Denver—it’s a lifestyle. Nearly 78% of Denver residents exercise at least once a week. Their fave group workout? Yoga, followed by strength training. Kickboxing’s what they want to try next.

Staying fit takes grit, though. Denver’s main motivations are to reduce stress, and to gain/lose weight.

 

Boston keeps it (Pilates) 100.

Boston loves striking a pose. Yoga and Pilates are the city’s core (yeah, we went there) group fitness classes. Kickboxing’s next on the to-do list.

In Boston, it’s good vibes only. Residents work out to feel good, and better mentally. They even spend 23% more a year on fitness than the average American to keep their spirits up.

 

San Francisco flexes on ’em.

Picking up heavy things, putting them down. That’s what San Francisco likes to do. Strength training is The City’s second most popular group fitness class, after yoga. The next big thing to look out for: aerobics.

Why they do it? To live long, healthy lives. (And for the gains, of course.) It pays off too—SF’s the #2 strongest wellness market in the US.

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

Recipes

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
