New Year. New Resolve.
From finding love and buying a house to saving money and traveling more, the New Year is about more than fireworks and a midnight kiss. It's a clean slate and the perfect time to set personal goals for the coming year.
For many, losing weight and getting healthier is at the top of the list when it comes to New Year Resolutions and is something that we at Patti Nelson Luxury are passionate about, though we admit that it’s not always easy. Finding your ideal workout regimen is critical in order to achieve and stick to your fitness-focused goals. For us, that means more than treadmills, ellipticals or CrossFit. Maybe what keeps us active and engaged will be your solution to a healthy lifestyle as well.
Agave Wellness Studio | Yoga for Life
This newly designed boutique studio in the heart of Boerne offers classes in yoga, pilates, barre and personal fitness training by highly-qualified instructors in a relaxing and spa-like atmosphere.
“For two years now, I’ve been practicing yoga with Andi Weekley,” Patti said. “I felt like the combination of stretching, strength and relaxing my mind were all important for a woman my age and with a high stress job.”
Having had a total hip replacement, Patti utilizes the private lessons offered so the workouts can be geared around her limitations.
“I love Andi,” Patti said. “She is the perfect combination of Jesus and Namaste! She keeps me accountable and even texts me regularly with positive affirmations.”
Patti highly recommends Andi and all of the Agave instructors because they have something for everyone. They even offer a men’s yoga class with an emphasis on helping your golf swing!
JoyRide | Cycling + Fitness
Designed to tone every muscle in the body while improving one’s state of mind, this boutique studio offers classes and a supportive community that empowers its athletes to live a big, joyful life.
“I joined JoyRide only a month ago, because I wanted an alternative to running and riding my bike in my neighborhood,” Shelby said. “I realized a long time ago that any gym I joined needed to include structured classes with set schedules, because I despise going to the gym and jumping from machine to machine.”
Having been introduced to cycling nearly 10 years ago, Shelby knew she enjoyed it and that it would be easier on her knees while still allowing her to get in a good sweat. After a conversation with a client who spoke highly of JoyRide and mentioned a Groupon that made it more affordable to test out for a month, her interest was piqued and she signed up.
“I attend classes by myself because I typically go at 6:30 am and while my friends love me, I don’t think they want to get up that early to workout!” Shelby said. “There are so many things I enjoy about the studio such as the boutique setting, upbeat music and overall energy in the room.”
For those who want more than just a lower body workout, they’ve also managed to incorporate weight lifting into every class or you can sign up for a class with 25 minutes of cycling and 25 minutes of more extensive weight training.
“Overall, it’s been a wonderfully therapeutic experience and I hope to see you there!” Shelby said.
Regardless of the workout routine and activity you select, exercising is a great way to disconnect from everyday life and challenge yourself. Getting into a routine is the hardest part, but we know that once you start, you’ll be glad you did. Best wishes for a healthy and prosperous New Year!
