If you’re looking to head into the new year healthy, fit, and at the top of your game, we suggest you get familiar with the most recent workout spots and restaurants to open in the 614. We’ve kept tabs on the fresh additions, so check out who’s new in town. Whatever your resolution was, “new year, new you” just got a whole lot easier.
If you aren’t hip to plant-based paradise Comune, boy, are you in for a treat. Found at the new East Public development on Parsons Ave., this high-end, health-conscious restaurant takes vegan dining in the 614 to a whole ’nother level. Check out their seasonally savvy menu, which includes Sweet Potato Tortas and a variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, and more.
The Space also opened its doors at East Public, making the South Side a healthy-living destination for vegans and yogis alike. If you’re looking for a place to really lay it all on the mat, The Space is for you. Its hybrid practice of Katonah, Vinyasa, Hatha, and Kundalini yoga doesn’t just focus on the physical but your overall well-being, too. Check out the schedule — and prepare to be inspired.
The seventh time’s the charm for GoYoga— they recently welcomed studios number six and seven to their family, setting up in the Brewery District and Westerville, respectively. Whether you’re looking to build more balance, break a sweat, or finally make meditation a daily thing, GoYoga has a class for you. Newbies get a great deal too — your first 10 days of classes are just $10.
With all the exciting new yoga spots in CBUS, you might have missed the newest studio on the block. Oak Studio—opened in November 2018 by two sisters in Gahanna—is more than just a regular studio. With free coffee and tea, changing rooms, and showers, it’s a really cool place to hang out, break a sweat, and then get right back to your daily schedule. Plus, they offer sets of “layered” classes built around your goals. Want to slim down or de-stress? There’s a layer for you. There’s even a Fun-Seeker layer to cover all your bases.
Chicago-based Shred415 opened their first location up in Dublin, and we’ve been busting a sweat ever since. Worried you’re late the party? No sweat. They let you control the pace — so if you’ve missed a few workouts, you won’t fall behind. Get through just four 15-minute strength and cardio intervals and we promise you’ll be hooked.
Get know Clean Eatz, a health-conscious restaurant/meal delivery service you’re sure to fall in love with. Clean Eatz has made weekly meal planning less of a chore with affordable, high-quality meal varieties to really step up your health game. And since arriving at Graceland fall 2018, foodies now have a separate cafe menu to choose from, too.
Renovo Fitness jumped into the CBUS fitness scene in the fall and since, then they’ve been in high gear. Their Boot Camps, hosted Monday through Saturday (and yoga Wednesday through Friday), have been kicking our you-know-what — and it’s super easy to drop in. Check them out next time you’re in Hilliard for a free week of classes.
Right now, you can only find pop-up vegan cafe Woodhouse at Oddfellows two days a week, but that’s going to change in 2019. These masterminds of vegan comfort food will set up shop in Italian Village five days a week, and we’re already planning our first meal. Once open, they’ll probably switch up the menu, too — here’s to hoping their take on Cincy’s staple Skyline Chili is here to stay.
