Get ready to sweat.
Dare to Bare
On Sunday, May 20, Movemeant Foundation is hosting its annual Dare to Bare fundraiser at Marina Green, benefiting the organization's body-positive programs in public schools and scholarships for underprivileged girls. Break out your sports bra and sunblock to participate in an outdoor SoulCycle class, with gear provided by Sweaty Betty. // Dare To Bare, May 20 at Marina Green Triangle. (Fort Mason), movemeant.org
Care for a MNT?
SoMa's barre and Pilates studio for the fit Pinterest set (their HQ is across the street), Mint Studios has expanded its space and offerings and has now been reborn as MNTSTUDIO. As Hamptons-feeling as any SF studio can be, the new MNT offers all of the same classes but with upgraded amenities and a new kids' play space for parents who want a workout but don't want to pay for a babysitter. // 766 Brannan St. (SoMa),
New in FiDi
Love Barry's Bootcamp but can't deal with the trek to the Marina or SoMa? Barry's just opened a 5,800-square-foot studio on Bush Street, less than two blocks from the Montgomery BART stop, with the largest locker rooms of any Barry's in the city and new 50-minute 'power breakfast' and 'power lunch' classes. An upgraded Fuel Bar and loungey lobby make this the most luxe Barry's in the Bay. // 333 Bush St. (FiDi), barrysbootcamp.com
A Mind/Body Sweat Fest
One 60-minute session on workout days is usually all we can fit into a good work/life balance, which means a daily struggle of whether or not to prioritize strength training, cardio, yoga or meditation. North Beach's new ZenFit studio combines all three practices into one 55-minute session of HIIT and yoga intervals, finishing with a 10-minute guided meditation—the ultimate mind/body solution for modern multitaskers. // 1020 Kearny St. (North Beach), zenfitsf.com
Attn: South Bayers
Those living or working in the South Bay can now clip into Cincinnati-based CycleBar's first Bay Area location, in Westgate in San Jose. Different from other cycling imports, rental shoes are complimentary, unlimited monthly memberships are offered, and all drop-ins and members are given a consultation on best classes for their personal goals. Monitors on each bike track how far you've come. // 5293 A Prospect Road. (San Jose), cyclebar.com
Pilates, Meet Yoga
Pilates ProWorks, known for its proprietary hard-core fitformer Pilates classes, is adding a yoga-inspired Tone and Flow class to its repertoire at studios throughout the Bay Area. A blend of yoga and mat Pilates, the class is meant to complement a reformer practice with more focused core-strengthening techniques and flexibility work. // Multiple locations, pilatesproworks.com
Indoor cycling's gold standard and still-growing empire, SoulCycle, is getting real about a Bay Area takeover. Three new studios are opening this month in San Mateo (May 18), Berkeley (May 21) and Los Gatos (May 23). All will be staffed by a combination of fan-favorite instructors and local newbies who will push you to your sweatiest edge as you pedal like crazy to the sound of your new favorite jams. // Multiple locations, soul-cycle.com
