As Virgil said, “The Greatest Wealth is Health,” and there are few places where that rings true more so than in a resort town. Staying in shape physically and emotionally is critical to one’s overall wellbeing in order to truly appreciate the opportunities and beauty outside each of our backdoors.
Luckily, local wellness experts can help you usher in 2020 with strength and serenity. I’ve put together a list of a few practitioners I rely upon to keep my work/life balance in check throughout the year so that I can both work and play hard for my clients and my family.

Founded in 2015 as a “concierge approach to fitness, happy hours and life in general,” Beau Collective – or Beauco – describes itself as “so many things … challenging fitness, fun social spots, great local businesses, motivational forces, family, life’s whatnot … & then blends them all together for a group of willing badasses for 3 months at a time …”
Based around 12-week sessions of twice-weekly 45-minute HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) classes, Beauco also offers a six-week “Teen Fitness and Social Series,” along with a “Youth Series” for ages 10+, both beginning on Jan. 8. Located in the Alpine Distilling Building in Silver Creek, the studio takes advantage of the social aspect of its host facility by offering a social room where workout warriors can mix and mingle after their session.

Those looking to build upon the basic can sign up for Tadasana’s sculpt classes, which include weight training and cardio.
