Fitness Vacations – The new IT way to jump start a healthy habit?

Just one quick google search will prove that Fitness Vacations- or Fitness and Spa excursions- are slowly gaining speed and popularity in the fitness world. These types of vacations are usually in an exotic area or a desolate and quite area. You focus on healthy eating, exercise, and rest and relaxation. Well, who wouldn’t want that?

However, for those of us that don’t feel like shlepping on an airplane and traveling to a resort in the middle of no-where, maybe we want to stay a little closer to home. Smart Workout now has your answer!

Since Spring is slowly sneaking in, Smart Workouts Fitness Vacation will now feature our Spring activity line up- including the Orchid Show at the NYC Botanical Gardens, walks along the Cloisters, and a full excursion of the newly designed Highline Park.


The best part of OUR Fitness Vacation- you can choose how YOU want to vacation- a week, a weekend, whether you are close to the city and want to stay for the weekend, want to visit family and make it a healthy trip where you can see new parts of the city and learn healthy eating habits, or live in Manhattan and just want to take a little time for yourself, we’ve got you covered!

Ready to really immerse in a healthy habit and indulge in the city full of culture and fun? Our next vacation begins on March 25th, so registration is open now! Learn more here.

I dont know about you, but Im REALLY looking forward to the Spring!

Kidz Fit at Smart Workout

Kidz Fit



(For kids ages 6 to 10)

Small Frye Cooking: Kids learn healthy choices, while doing hands-on cooking activities. They eat what they make, take home “leftovers”, and get recipes to try out on the whole family. Examples of our menus include: Whole wheat pita pizza with Italian green salad, and baked pears with low-fat ricotta; fiesta cheese quesadillas with confetti black bean salad, and toasted coconut fruit kebabs.

Mighty Muscles: Gymnastics, hula hoops, basketball drills, “soft weight” lifting, fencing (with foam swords), all help to develop your children’s strength, stamina, and co-ordination.

Big Kid Boxing: A non-combat class that teaches exercise and training methods used by boxers. There is no sparring or actual boxing performed, but kids will definitely feel like a young Sugar Ray. The class includes workouts using the trampoline, the physio ball, the step, Airopes, medicine ball relays, and of course, the punching bag.

Youngsta’s Yoga: Includes creative poses, yoga games, obstacle courses, and relaxation time with lavender eye pillows, and temple massages.

Parent’s Pump-Up: Kickboxing, Total Body Conditioning, Katami, Kettlebells, Zumba, and Warrior Workout. There is nothing kid-like about these heavy duty workouts.

Each session has 4 classes for Kids and 4 classes for adults.

All classes are held on Saturdays, from 11:30 to 12:30pm.

the dates of the Spring Session are 5/14, 5/21, 6/3, 6/10.

Why Zumba can be the best workout you’ve done…

Zumba is one of the hottest workouts around for many different reasons. First, you work up a sweat while dancing and having fun, so you’re improving your cardiovascular health. It is also a workout for the brain. Having to focus on dance moves has been proven to stimulate brain function and memory.  Fusion dance fitness classes are perfect for those who want a fun and challenging workout.

At Smart Workout, we recently re-vamped our Zumba class. Zumba has been around for a few years now, and to keep up with the evolution of this exciting fusion class we’ve creating two new and different Zumba classes (Zumba 1 and Zumba 2) to keep you engaged, interested and loving working out!

To launch these new classes, we decided to give new customers a great deal. You’re invited to take one of our Zumba classes for FREE on one of our “Zumba Days.” Details are below, as well as a video to preview some of the great moves you’ll have in your upcoming Zumba class!

Zumba Days are as follows:

Thursday, 4/21. at 6:00pm Zumba 1

Tuesday, 4/26, at 7:30pm Zumba 2 

Thursday, 4/28, at 6:00pm Zumba 1

Any one who would like to take a complimentary Zumba class should send an email to with their full name, phone number, and the date of the class that they would like to attend.
