Though many of us can’t feel it (I’m talking to you, East Coast), spring is officially here and summer is just around the corner. In a couple months, the bathing suits will be coming out and the shorts will be dusted off – in other words, it’s time to get ready.
Since we’re living in a technological golden age, getting fit has never been easier. Anything we want, from online personal trainers to food trackers to yoga studios, can all be found online – and won’t break the bank.
We’ve done the research and found the best of the best. So, without further ado, we present the cream of the crop – for both working out and eating healthy:
- Classpass: Gym class rats, this one’s for you. For $79 – $99 a month (varies between cities), receive unlimited classes to a variety of studios in the ClassPass network.
