Wellness Around Boston: Lululemon Newbury
If you’re a Lululemon fan, you’ll love their latest outpost on Newbury Street in Boston. Not your typical retail store, this massive outpost boasts a lounge and workspace, event space, fitness studio with fully stocked locker rooms, and a juice bar for a healthy post-workout treat. Fitness classes range from kickboxing and HIIT to yoga and strength workouts. Don’t worry about bringing your own equipment; each class has all the supplies you’ll need on hand.
The Lululemon retail store encompasses the entire first floor. Upstairs you’ll find the lounge, studio, Nourish Your Soul juice bar, and locker rooms. The Nourish Your Soul juice bar has a wide variety of smoothies, bowls, and other healthy snacks. Adjacent to the juice bar, the lounge welcomes you with a wide range of comfortable spots to sit and take a break or get some work done. The studio is big, bright, and open with space for 30. In the locker rooms, gorgeous waterfall showers with eucalyptus plants hanging from the showerhead lend a welcoming touch. Lululemon outfits each shower with Davine’s brand body wash, shampoo, and conditioner as well as their recently launched skincare line of deodorant and moisturizer.
We stopped by for a 50-minute HIIT class at the studio. Katie Barrett, BSpoke trainer, led us through an intense hour long HIIT workout filled with pushups (her favorite), burpees, squats, lunges and more challenging exercises. At the end we meditated which was a nice touch for such a high energy class and off to the showers we went.
Overall, we’ll definitely be going back (probably this weekend). Your first week is FREE when you sign up on the mindbody app. So go get a workout in and most importantly check out the locker rooms. You won’t be disappointed.
