It’s that time of the year again! New York City streets are ablaze with holiday lights and every happy hour seems to advertise some concoction of spiked hot liquid to warm your bones. In about a week, many of us will likely spend time with friends and family, gorging on various types of meats, cheeses, desserts, and making merry with eggnog mixed with bourbon and rum. I love the holidays!
Oh, let’s not forget how lit you’ll be getting on getting on New Year’s Eve. Sure, you told yourself that this year will be a quiet one. You’ll enjoy some champagne while you watch the ball drop and call it a night by 1:00am. NOPE. It’s not even 8pm and you’re a bottle of Moett, two shots of tequila, a beer, and three cigarettes deep. Next thing you know, it’s New Year’s Day. As your head throbs with pain, you check your Snap story to reflect on the good times you don’t remember. Oh well, 2016 sucked anyways.
It’s 2017 and THIS. IS. THE. YEAR. You want to cut down on the junk food and get into shape. But where do you begin? It’s the first of the month, so your rent is due. You’ve got utilities to pay. You already have sixty unread e-mails from work. How will you find the time and money to hop onto the wellness train? Don’t worry, I gotchu.
What’s to come?
With community support, I’ll start by posting stuff containing basic knowledge and tools you’ll need to start 2017 in New York the right way. I’ll discuss how to stay in shape while still indulging in the vices that the city has to offer. I’ll also point you to team sports, meet-ups, fitness groups, outdoor groups, etc. How can you possibly stay motivated if you’re not having any fun? Wait, did he say community support?
Be a part of it!
Yes! This site doesn’t function without YOU. Here, you can create a profile, see what everyone is up to, post some interesting shit of your own, blah blah blah it’s got social networking features. But seriously, spread the good word because this community is the first of its kind in NYC. It’s not a Meetup (though those are great), not Crossfit, not a prayer group, none of that – this is a one stop shop for all things fitness in NYC that connects fitness enthusiasts across 5 boroughs. See you in 2017!
