If you’re regularly scrolling through the Facebook events page looking for things to do, then you might have seen fitness classes popping up at restaurants around town. It seems like every other week there’s a restaurant hosting an afternoon yoga series before happy hour or a Saturday morning barre brunch. And there’s even a few fitness studios welcoming local cafes into their midst, like Sukha Cafe at Yoga Bliss and MJ’s Cafe at Yoga Rouge.
Here at 225 Dine, we fully support this Red Stick restaurant trend—it’s a great way to eliminate that post-cheese-fries guilt. We’ll gladly donate an hour of sweaty calorie blasting if it means we can fill up on tacos and cocktails right after. Whether you’re a one-timer or a weekly regular, there’s definitely a foodie workout in the Capital City for you. So check out this list of local restaurant-workout combos the next time you’re in the mood to feel the burn and scarf down a burger.
White Star Market has become our go-to spot for, well, just about anything. Between endless food options, drinks, speed dating and workout classes, there’s a lot packed into this Mid City market. Head over on weekend mornings, and you’ll likely stumble onto a small group armed with water bottles and yoga mats. The food hall regularly hosts yoga, Pilates and barre classes on the outside patio. If stretching and pulsing isn’t really your thing, don’t worry. You can join in on a weekday evening community run or bike ride that starts and ends at White Star.
