How to Amp Up your Fitness/Wellness Routine in 2019 

Another gut-busting and delicious season of feasting is over, and summer will be here before we know it. Now is the perfect time to set your New Year’s Resolutions and fitness goals for 2019. Luckily, Midtown Crossing is the perfect spot to find everything you need to feel your best.

A new year means it’s time to shake things up, so why not try one of the many Prairie Life Fitness classes? With plenty of variety, there is a class to accommodate anyone who wants to shake off the winter blues (and excess L.B.’s). Still sore from putting heavy Christmas boxes away? PiYo classes are just what the doctor ordered! Not only are they a great workout; they also stretch sore muscles to let you wake up feeling refreshed an energized.

If you’re feeling alone in a whirlwind of options, have no fear. Health goals don’t have to be done solo! If your pup is looking like a beach ball on legs after the holidays, why not take them on a brisk walk around Turner Park at Midtown Crossing? You’ll both be burning calories, and just four laps around the park is all it takes to reach one mile.

After a brisk walk, Long Dog Fat Cat is the ideal place to stop for trustworthy food brands that enhance your dog’s health. One of their highest recommended brands of low-calorie treats, Icelandic Plus, comes from Iceland and uses fish-based treats for a snack that is both grain-free and healthy for your pet. For an increase in energy, they also recommend Fromm brand, as their raw and freeze-dried, nutrient-packed dog food promotes overall health.

Everyone needs a little pick-me-up after a good workout. Modern Love has a menu tailored perfectly towards mindful eaters. Fan favorites include their immense salads packed with nutritious ingredients. Even their Chickpea Bacon Ranch burger has a healthy twist, featuring a chickpea cutlet, mushroom bacon, lettuce, tomato, red onion, ranch dressing, and avocado stacked atop a bolillo bun. (Yum!)

If you have a green thumb and passion for the outdoors, a charming succulent might be just the solution for your winter blues. Plants not only help people breathe easier, they can increase concentration and boost your mood while working indoors. Bryan at Hutch stresses that, “bringing nature in is definitely a relief and gives your body a bit of the outdoors in the cold months.” The best part? Succulents are hearty plants that can survive a multitude of environments!

Midtown Crossing isn’t just a pretty part of town; it’s the perfect setting for achieving your New Year’s wellness goals. Start this year on the right foot by visiting their many stops for a quick workout, a healthy meal, or verdant accessory to start 2019 on the right foot.
