The party’s just getting started at David Barton Gym Limelight.
January is generally a time for personal “inventory”: we assess everything from our work/life balance and relationships to our financial health and real estate aspirations. We weigh, literally, how the holidays, themselves, or the fall months before, may have inflicted some damage to our bodies. (Though all that eating, drinking and celebrating did wonders for our spirits–and that’s okay.)

But, just because the new year is here doesn’t mean that the party’s over. Never one for major New Year’s resolutions, I do believe in reasonable goal-setting to keep myself motivated through the dead of winter.

So, I’m dedicating 2015 to moving forward.

STRENGTH+Sole is getting a new look and we’re busy behind the scenes now, making your experience even better. That means: easier search, bigger images and more weekly fitness and fashion content. Stay tuned–it’s coming your way by March!

If you’re shopping for a new gym, take a look at David Barton‘s just-opened Chelsea location. Formerly, the raging, all-night dance club The Limelight, it’s now a haven for sweating of a different sort. With Life Fitness treadmills, ellipticals and weight machines tucked into dimly-lit, dreamy spaces and the original stained glass windows all around, this gym is proof that in New York, everyone–and everything–is always being reinvented.

Here’s to the power of positive change.

    Thanks for the positive spin on January.
    I usually find it to be a long and dreary month
    but, as usual, your glass is half-full! Hope
    2015 brings you all that you wish for.

    I’m in disbelief that this club is now this gym. I don’t know if I feel sad because I wish it was still the place I used to dance for hours and hours or jealous that I am not a member and don’t live next door. Rachel, thanks for keeping me posted on such interesting things. Happy New Year to you! Love!!!
