Denver is giving us extra motivation. Culturally sophisticated, naturally active (pun intended) and with so many health-first options, we can't wait to visit again. Check out our favorite healthy spots to break a sweat and fuel our bodies.
The Barre Code: Your core + hips support the strength of the rest of your body, so make sure to invest some time in your glutes during these low-impact, challenging classes. The studio is centrally located near Union Station, with an industrial chic aesthetic.
Fierce45: For something higher intensity, visit Fierce45. The energy here is driven by passionate teachers and beats to get your heart rate up. Bonus: they offer childcare!
City Surf Fitness: Denver isn't their only location, but we love their coastal-inspired workouts. It might look easy - workout on a board, sure - but adding the balance element to typically floor-based exercises will break you out in a serious sweat.
The outdoor options in Denver are mesmerizing, and gorgeous. A few of our favorite locations for biking, hiking + running, and general outdoor awesomeness.
The Corner Beet: This spot makes our heart skip a beat. The food is fresh, organic and local. Not to mention the vibe is open and warm. Plus, we can never say no to breakfast burritos. Perfect for breakfast + lunch.
Root Down: Taking locally grown to the next level. Their two on-site gardens produce most of the vegetables that appear on the menu as well as their sister restaurants. They're exceptionally accommodating for dietary restrictions and their global influencer is noted from arepas to risotto.
True Food Kitchen: Not unique to Colorado, but we love the experience, the choices and the commitment to science. The story here is leveraging experts in true healthy living like Dr. Andrew Weil, to create a menu prioritizing anti-inflammation.
