4 Ways to Achieve Your New Year’s Resolutions at The Harrison
Those of us who are members at gyms or health clubs know that the first month or two of a new year tends to be the worst time to work out. Nothing can kill an endorphin buzz like having to wait in line for every machine after you’ve already trekked to the gym. Fortunately, The Harrison residents have plenty of other options for achieving their health- and fitness-related New Year’s resolutions without stepping foot in a crowded gym. Here are some of our favorite on-site and nearby suggestions.
1. Take advantage of The Harrison’s fitness center.
No commuting, no lines, no crowds, no extra fees—the benefits of having a 2,500-square-foot fitness center at home are substantial. With on-demand TVs streaming 500+ fitness programs, steam rooms in the locker rooms and a heated pool and spa, The Harrison’s fitness center is much more than your average residential gym.
2. Go for bike rides along the bay.
Hop on your own set of wheels or grab a bike share nearby and set out for a breezy bike ride along the San Francisco Bay Trail, accessible within a few blocks of The Harrison. Weather permitting, a ride with views of the city and sea beats a spin class any day.
3. Practice yoga outdoors.
Another option residents have is to head to a handful of nearby parks, beaches or The Harrison’s very own reflection pool to stretch out. Whether you bring your mat for a solo practice or join a donation-based group class, outdoor yoga is a great way to improve your physical and emotional well-being.
4. Zen out at Uncle Harry’s.
Though it can be rented out for gatherings and events, Uncle Harry’s is a very mellow escape on its own. When you need a change of scenery and a moment of quiet, this penthouse residence lounge can be a great setting for practicing mindfulness or just chilling out—because mental health is just as important as (and has a big effect on) physical health!
