Last week I had the chance to host two amazing, healthy-living inspired events: a dinner at sweetgreen Hollywood and a ride at SoulCycle CLVR.
sweetgreen + Sweat and Repeat
Sweetgreen is my absolute favorite place for a nutritious bite to eat in LA. Not only do they source local and organic ingredients, but their salads are also reasonably priced—most between $9-12, including a protein. You can find me regularly at the Hollywood location fueling up after a sweaty spin or Pilates class nearby.
To ring in the new year and the launch of the sweetgreen winter menu, I hosted an event with ten local fitness enthusiasts who were quick on their feet and RSVP’d to my Instagram invite. We all met up on Thursday evening and sipped on frescas while munching on delicious salads.
The sweegreen winter menu uses in-season fruits and veggies to create a one of a kind flavor that excites your taste buds. The star of the table had to be the Grapefruit + Avocado packed with arugula, endives, citrus shrimp, red grapefruit, mint, avocado, cucumber, and walnuts coated with a lemon garlic chili dressing…oh my!
Thanks to all who came out and to sweetgreen for providing us with a delicious dinner!
SoulCycle CLVR + Sweat and Repeat
Some would argue that SoulCycle is the crème de la crème of the boutique fitness scene, and I might have to agree. With gorgeous, sleek, modern décor, fragrant candles, and phone charger hook ups in each locker, it’s no wonder that each bike goes for $30 a class.
When SoulCycle CLVR asked if I wanted to host an event to celebrate their opening, I couldn’t say yes fast enough. I posted the invite here and on my Instagram and was inundated with RSVPs—I knew it would be a killer group!
The studio is located on the second floor of a currently vacant but soon opening shopping center—The Platform—that reminds me of a mini Grove and will be home to many upscale, unique tenants.
Despite it being a Sunday morning, the vibe was pure excitement as people put on their spin shoes while listening to beats spun by a live DJ and snapping pics in the animated photo booth (check them out here).
The energy only continued to build as we clipped into bikes and Julia started blasting her upbeat tunes. For 45 minutes we pedaled like nobody’s business, taking short breaks only to towel off the insane amount of sweat or give a loud “wooooo” cheer. Midway through class I literally got chills from the incredibly motivating, dedicated, and inspiring atmosphere.
We ended class with a much-needed stretch and a final breath of gratitude before heading out to mix and mingle!
Thank you to SoulCycle CLVR for welcoming us into your space and to everyone who was able to join!
