Blame it on the vodka. The Henny. Or on your sun-soaked, bad summer habits. Get a move on with some fun, local feel-good tips.
Take Baby Steps
New local shoe co. Kigo creates the perfect solution to the live/work/if-I-break-another-stiletto-walking-to-work-I’m-gonna-scream dilemma. The foldable, packable shoes are perfect for cyclists and city dwellers alike (Intown Bicycles, 1035 Monroe Drive; 404-872-1736).
Nip, Don’t Tuck
Lift classes and training at Tammy Stokes’s West Coast Workout studio are incentive not to go under the knife. Book a seat at one of her in-house gourmet dinners/lifestyle workshops for healthy food pointers, hilarious anecdotes, and healthy chocolate shakes.
Give a Little Bit
Saturdays this summer, Urban Body Studios instructors lead drop-in 8 a.m. classes to benefit the Atlanta Children’s Shelter. (Through August 29 at Piedmont Park. Donations accepted in lieu of class fee. For info, call 770-710-0243.
Be a Teas
Take in more than the moody lighting, mirrored columns, and glam chandelier work at Lumen, the brand new bar at The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta (Downtown). The fresh iced tea spread comes with a twist in the form of açai pomegranate, Marrakesh mint, and orange jasmine mango with tufts of cotton candy. (Not agave nectar. But it beats the heck outta boozin’, right?)
Ready, set, go.
