Exercise Together At Our Favorite Couples Workout: Switch Playground

  • Active
  • Food

Tonight's date is one of those "healthy" "good ideas" where the two of you workout. Check out Switch Playground in Soho—basically the best couples workout ever—because the class rotates around 20+ stations in pairs of two (perfect for you and your person). Each round is a different exercise (anything from jump squats to sprinting on a stationary bike), so you never get bored. And there’s a live DJ, which really makes it feel like a party. Check their class schedule here. They also have a second location in the East Village.

After you sweat out all of the day’s stress, head next door to Bar Pitti. An authentic Italian restaurant with a giant board of specials every evening, Bar Pitti is famous for its celebrity sightings (Beyonce and Jay, Jim Carrey and the Kardashians to name a few). We think you deserve to splurge on a plate of carbs after your workout (the pasta alle vongole is heaven), but you can also go the healthy route with meatballs and salad. Warning, this place is cash-only and the waitstaff can be a bit abrasive, but know that it's all part of the experience.
