After years of failed resolutions, moderation is our new MO.

Spin to Win
Survivor and inspiration Jennifer Linn has been battling cancer for years. She and her husband, David, launched Cycle for Survival, a nonprofit raising funds for rare cancer research. Grab friends, pool your money, and feel your butt burn in the February 5 four-hour relay ride at Equinox The Loop. All proceeds go to research (yes, all).

Practice Makes Perfect
Get in shape before you go at new spin studio Go Cycle. The Go Yo class is a genius combo of cycling and yoga. For all-around strength training, hit up Precision Human Performance. The new gym specializes in Muscle Activation Techniques, which increases range of motion and decreases muscle tightness.

Rockin’ Your Toxins
Pretend that Christmas binge never happened with a cleanse from just-opened organic juice bar Green Corner. Choose the duration (three and seven days are most popular) and reenergize with six juices per day: four chlorophyll-packed Green Corners; one carrot, apple, beet, ginger, and orange (high in beta-carotene, aids digestion); and a morning grapefruit juice to alkalize.

An Apple a Day
Have your health and eat it, too, with Door to Door Organics. The sustainably minded company delivers a box of locally grown, organic fruits and veggies to your door each week.

Take a Break
Recharge with a massage (new on the list of services) at tried-and-true Cleise Brazilian Day Spa. The therapists are experts in Swedish, deep-tissue, hot stone, reflexology, and killer foot massage.
