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 Workout’s 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 don’t know about you, but I’m REALLY looking forward to the Spring!
Welcome to 2012!

Here’s to a happy and healthy new year!
One of the reasons why many people get into the fitness industry is to share their knowledge with others and assist them in reaching their goals. However, when you work in the industry, one of the very best benefits is that you are surrounded by like-minded individuals who share that passion. Eventually, if you’re lucky you’ll find yourself working at a place where the staff is all supportive of each other, help out to get clients to reach their goals, and find that each instructor also has passions outside the workplace. And today, we’d like to showcase that.
One of our newer additions to the Smart Workout staff, Mary Silverstein, also runs The Pink Tutu Ballet Company. When she isn’t kicking someone’s butt here at our fitness facility, Mary choreographs numbers for performances! Over Thanksgiving weekend, Mary’s company was featured in a Showcase at Alvin Ailey.
Check out the video here. It was an amazing show, with incredible reviews, and we are so proud to say that Mary is a part of our team!
Mary also went through our Pilates Certification program, and has already had amazing success teaching. Through dedication and growth, we think Mary is a perfect example of how to turn a passion into a successful career- and we were happy to help her through that journey!
Get your work out in and entertain your little one at the same time!
