Rise and Shine in the Summer

July 2017

Summer is the perfect season to continue your fitness goals and really jump-start your workout routine. At the 555TEN luxury rentals in Midtown West, you can make good on these goals at the dedicated health and wellness floor, where you’ll find state-of-the-art cardio equipment, a weight room, and an indoor lap pool. And with access to six-day-a-week fitness programming, with some of the most effective and popular exercise trends—literally—at your doorstep, you’ll be able to avoid any of those maddening fitness plateaus.

For a recent cover article for Time Magazine, journalist Mandy Oaklander interviewed leading health scientists and physicians on the cutting edge of exercise research before declaring, “If there were a drug that could do for human health everything that exercise can, it would likely be the most valuable pharmaceutical ever developed.” Study after study not only affirms that exercise is good for us; it may be the best tool we have to ward off aging, chronic pain, vision loss, Alzheimer’s, and memory loss, and to boost overall mental and physical well-being.

At the 555TEN apartments, residents have access to this “wonder drug” via a medley of six potent workouts for the week. Center yourself at Monday’s All-Level Yoga class, which will guide you through basic poses and expand your practice as you become calmer and more centered for the week ahead. Tuesday’s Cardio Boot Camp includes drills and functional movements for a full body workout that involves strength training and heart conditioning. The Circuit Burn on Wednesdays will torch calories and transform your body through a high-intensity interval workout, scientifically proven to yield benefits within minutes. The ABT Tone class on Thursday tightens abs, thighs, and glutes through low-impact weight and resistance drills. And Friday’s Sculpt Fusion is the perfect way to round out the week’s work, combining strength work, stretching, and cardio to target specific areas that may need attention.

The number-one excuse for not taking advantage of exercise’s myriad benefits is lack of time—but with a whole new exercise regime just an elevator ride from your apartment, you’ll be even closer to a stronger, calmer, and healthier you.
