5 Simple Tips That Will Change Your Health Today.

In a world full of waist trainers and skinny teas, we're here to share the facts about what will actually get you FIT and HEALTHY without breaking the bank. These tips are going to seem like common sense but they work and they will help you turn this into a LIFESTYLE.

1. Drink water 1st thing in the morning: The second you wake up, chug a glass of H2O to jump-start your body and your metabolism. This will also start your day off on the right note and put a dent in your daily water intake as well.

2. Speaking of water, drink 1/2 your body weight in water EVERY DAY: it may sound like a lot, but your skin and body will thank you! Drinking the proper amount of water will also help you stay full throughout the day and keep you from giving into cravings. All you have to do is get a water bottle with the ounces written on it and keep track of how many you drink. ie: I have a 40 oz water bottle, so I know if I drink 3 of them a day it is ~ 1 gallon (more than I need).

Datefit Meets GrooveRyde: Workout Class Review.

For some, going to a new workout class can bring back those feelings of being "the new kid at school." You're in an unfamiliar place, with new classmates, taking a class with a brand new teacher. But that is the exact opposite of how it felt the first time Datefit visited GrooveRyde.

As soon as I walked into the new Downtown Cleveland studio, I instantly picked up on the welcoming spirit of the staff and classmates. This vibe was created by the founders (Anjua and Zosimo Maximo) a couple from Los Angelas with a whole lot of "Hustle and Heart". Their message is present in their mission & community as well as the walls of the new killer studio! Speaking of the studio--  this one is unlike any other I've come across! With garage doors that open up to Perk Park, hanging teardrop boxing bags, and awesome decor in the "Hustle and Heart" lit spin studio.... it definitely has that big city feel!
