Spinning with a View

A change of location and a different atmosphere can elevate an everyday activity into something extraordinary. Just think about the enhanced bliss guests experience in a beachside cabana massage treatment rather than a standard indoor space. It rings true for yoga and a variety of fitness offerings too, as I discovered at a recent rooftop cycling class. It was well worth the effort to assemble a full room of bikes atop the Refinery Hotel (New York City). “We are dedicated to redefining wellth for a new generation of travelers, and we are excited to work with a like-minded hotel that does the same for its community and guests,” said Suzie Baleson, cofounder of Wellthily, which hosted the fab event. The morning included a Cyc Fitness ride, a Provita yoga class, healthy snacks and fresh juices, and a chance to mingle with health experts. The space was buzzing, and I felt extra motivated to push myself harder on the bike and relax into stretches in the yoga class that followed.

What does your spa do to liven up standard treatment offerings and enhance fitness classes?
