Atlanta Health and Wellness Guide 2014

New workouts, healthy drinks, and a beauty treatment

Your days of crushing cookies are gone till November. New juices, fitness classes, and a major facial help you survive the next ten months.

Camp Out
The city’s coolest park is home to one of its sweatiest workouts. Trainer Julie White of Fit: to Be leads a boot camp in Fourth Ward Park on weekends (Sat., 8 & 9:30 a.m.; Sun., 9:30 a.m.). After one session, you’ll never look at those amphitheater steps the same. During the week, she’s at Piedmont Park (Mon., 6:30 a.m.; Wed., 6:30 p.m.; Thurs., 7 a.m. & 7 p.m.). The first class is free or you can drop in for $15 ($40 for four). There’s also a new studio for workouts in inclement weather. Check Facebook for more info.

Face It
You face will glow like J.Lo on a juice cleanse after the Intraceuticals facial at Aviary. Amy Leavell Bransford performs the celeb-approved infusion of rejuvenating serum into the skin via an oxygen contraption (it feels like antiaging angels are whispering all over your mug). Visible results from one treatment ($150) last a week or so, but spring for six ($900 plus you get four, full-size products) for longer-lasting loveliness.


Jump Around
The elliptical routine is so 2013. Get a better body without boredom thanks to PeerFit Passport, which lets you try five workouts (Chaos Conditioning, Orangetheory, boot camps, and more) a couple of times each at an affordable price ($59 for a limited time at peerfit.com).

Breathe Easy
After workout hopping, you need a stretch session. Evolation Yoga arrives in Atlanta with hot and nonhot classes in the Sun Room and Moon Room, plus exceptional amenities, a kids’ programs, and events (like Community Giving Sandwich Night). Scoop up a one-month unlimited special for $49.

If cleansing’s on your agenda (duh), run to Rawesome Juicery. The Sweet Auburn Curb Market staple expanded and upgraded to include healthy eats such as raw zucchini spaghetti, avocado pudding, and hummus alongside its game-changing juices like Garden Grow and Fat Burner.

It’s going to be a good year.
