Burn Notice

Give thanks for two new local workout concepts.

If history repeats itself, your mom's loaded Thanksgiving menu will surely have you vying for a position as a float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. How to battle the bulge that's coming your way this week? By looking into two exciting workout concepts brand new to the Crescent City scene. 

Tour Cycle Studio: Spin yourself thin and strong at the brand new cycle studio (pictured top) on Tchoupitoulas Street officially opening TODAY. Started by New Orleanian Madeline Spiers, the super sleek space features 35 bikes complete with power consoles that showcase your resistance and power stats, stadium style seating and pumped up music to get you through the intense interval cardio workout. Choose from a straight-up spin class or a session that incorporates free weights for extra toning. 

City Surf Fitness: Making waves on Magazine Street comes the group workout that will have you looking surfer girl svelte. Using 6-foot stationary surfboards (pictured bottom) to replicate wave riding, you'll use paddling motions to lean out your physique and increase flexibility. From cardio-based bootcamps to vinyasa flow classes, you'll want to hang 'til you're a ten. Add to it upbeat tunes and you'll be in a vacay state of mind and body. Be on the watch for outdoor classes and happy hours hosted in their picturesque backyard space.
