Nix Netflix and Chill for…

Whether travel, never-ending work hours, or a generally all-over-the-board schedule, there is a lot of pull on life that can leave your workout routine neglected. The simple solution may be streaming. Whenever, wherever workouts and classes accessed anytime/anywhere (with space for a yoga mat and a solid WiFi connection). Here are some viral options for you to try out.

Sweating ADay

Heel-Side is taking a look at the fashion fitness label ADAY.  ADAY targets the millennial consumer (or those that have acclimated the characteristics embraced by this generation) of the work hard – play hard a constant push-pull of work life balance and flexibility. So much to do and so little time. Founders Nina Faulhaber and Meg He partnered up while working at Goldman Sachs over their mutual love of boutique fitness.

Sweating Sworkit

A guilty pleasure here at Heel-Side is taking a time out to watch Shark Tank. During the latest episode a company called Sworkit (Simply Work It) dove into the tank – and the Sharks took the bait. Sworkit’s premise is to remove the excuse by offering anywhere, anytime workouts. The app allows you to customize video workouts including strength, cardio, yoga, or stretching. Length of workouts range from 5 to 60

Sweating Y-7 Yoga

Heel-Side took to the beat-driving vinyasa flow space of Y-7 Studios Broome Street location this past weekend. There has been a lot of talk around town about Y-7 Yoga Studios founded by Mason and Sarah Levey. This studio is redefining the stereotypical yoga practice ‘norm’- no mirrors, no candles. The lights go off, the heat goes up and you get right into the flow. The class tempo is paced off cultivated playlists .

Each element’s unique shape allows users to perform a variety of exercises. The shapes reference regular

Après-ski

The last stop, final run of the day – Après-ski. Head to toe slope style in affluent abundance during this peak style social stop.

All About Kit and Ace

I want to take some time to catch up on the recent game changers in the athletic world. Heel-Side was on an extended hibernation staycation (i.e. outside of the blogosphere.) Good news – back home among the fashionably fit. A little overtime needed to catch you up to who’s on the A team these days – some serious cliff note sessions are queued up. Here we go… Today at Heel-Side we are

Everything but the Dress

Karlie Kloss caught sporting yet again. New face  for Kurt Geiger’s Spring | Summer 16 campaign. Black, red, and white – a pared down color pallet evoking none other than team spirit. Energetic, high fashion sporting  is the baseline appeal in this collab between Creative director Rebecca Farrar-Hockley and Erik Tortensson. Pieces include swim, sport sandal hybrids, sneakers, and flat-forms. The game plan here was to avoid compromising functionality and wearability for high
