Summertime (Virtual) Fitness at The Terraces at The Ambassador Gardens
At-home exercises are more popular than ever. Thanks to a virtual revolution, you can enjoy all the benefits of a workout class without having to step foot in a gym. Lucky for you, Terraces at The Ambassador Gardens offers spacious living spaces and fantastic natural light—meaning there’s ample room for you to work out and keep in shape—whatever your exercise of choice. Here are some ideas to get you moving in your Pasadena condo, townhome or penthouse.
SoulCycle Virtual Classes
As its own website says, “SoulCycle is a practice, not a place.” Continue to enjoy everything that’s great about SoulCycle’s classes via Instagram and Zoom: its roster of passionate and fun instructors will inspire you with circuit training, guided meditation, HIIT workouts, dance classes, motivating playlists, and more. You don’t need an exercise bike for most of these workouts (although your residence could easily fit one), and the generously proportioned windows and genuine hardwood flooring make for a practical, bright, and breezy studio setting. Speaking of which, you could even do your workout on the balcony of your own home.
These highly rated cardio and strength-building classes are now available in your home, thanks to YouTube and Instagram offerings from some of Orangetheory Fitness’ best instructors (including those in Pasadena). Work your way through seal jacks, alt bird dogs, woodchoppers, and cobra swings from the comfort of your luxury home. It’s recommended you get an Orangetheory miniband, which tells you when to push yourself and when to rest, but no other specialist equipment is required. In fact, the instructors might even tell you to grab household items—like kettles—to use as weights! You needn’t travel far for your post-workout cool-down: grab a juice or ice water from the chef’s kitchen, then hit the master bathroom’s frameless glass shower.
The Bar Method
Just because you’re not at the gym, doesn’t mean you can’t be working on those body-sculpting goals. The Bar Method Pasadena is a boutique barre fitness studio, but right now, it’s even more boutique, offering at-home workouts. “Long, lean sculpted muscles” are your reward if you sign up for a virtual membership and follow the Bar Method’s 45-minute classes, led by highly trained instructors and suitable for everyone. Whether you use the living room, bedroom, or balcony of your Terraces residence, you’ll have enough space for these challenging, yet graceful workouts. There’s a weekly Zoom happy hour too; enjoy it from your Caesarstone kitchen island/eating bar, clutching a glass of something tall and cool. You’ve earned it after all that exercise.
