While we’re sure you’re great the way you are, the new year tends to inspire a desire to create a new you. If last January taught us anything, it’s that in order to stay inspired, you have to keep things interesting. Achieve all of your #healthgoals this year at New York City’s 12 coolest workout classes to take for a new you.
A healthy mind makes for a healthy life. Get your brain to boot camp at MNDFL, a meditation mini-chain with locations in Greenwich Village, the Upper East Side, and Williamsburg. At the studio’s Intention class, you’ll develop an intention that’s specific to you in a 30-, 45-, or 60-minute session.
Chase your goals at Mile High Run Club, where treadmill and strength-training classes give you the confidence to run after what you want. Here, classes are broken down by mileage and timing, allowing beginners to start with a two-to-three-mile option and, eventually, move up to the five-to-seven-mile level.
Put your guilty pleasure to good use at 305 Fitness, a Miami-inspired dance cardio studio that considers your wild clubbing days a workout warm-up. Soundtracked by a live DJ, the studio’s 55-minute classes combine dance moves, high-intensity interval training, and drills to make you dance like no one is watching.
Climb your mountain in 2018—but maybe start with a smaller-scale rock wall at the popular Brooklyn Boulders. Here, you’ll learn the ropes before tackling the 22-foot-tall (6.7 meters) climbing walls and 22,000 square feet of climbing space. Much like the figurative (or literal) mountain set in your sights, this workout may seem daunting, but the view from the top makes all of your work worthwhile.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A GUIDE?
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR JOB?
It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.
WHAT DESTINATION IS ON YOUR TRAVEL BUCKET-LIST?
I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
