This week we caught up with SWERVE instructor, Erin Nelson, to find out she is treating herself this Valentine’s Day and where she will be escaping in NYC for some quiet time.
Do you have any Valentine’s Day plans this year? Staycation! I’m going off the grid to an undisclosed location in NYC for two nights. Best treat for any New Yorker during the frigid winter months, especially if you can’t escape to a beach.
What Valentine’s Day candy is it impossible for you to stay away from? Red Hots will be my forever favorite, especially when they’re shaped like hearts.
Obviously, I’m going to throw SWERVE in the mix immediately. It’s indoor cycling with teams, so you can ride on the same team and work together to win the race or compete against each other on different teams. Who doesn’t love a little friendly competition?Switch Playground pairs people up. Each couple moves around to 20 different stations performing various strength & cardio exercises. The environment is one you’ll never forget! So fun & is over before you know it! Yoga is a great option for couples. It allows you to feel centered and open. Perfect pre-brunch burn on the weekends. Plethora of options in the City, but my favorite is Modo Yoga in the Village.
How have you noticed working out together affects people’s love lives?
I used to teach a very early morning SWERVE Ride that I unofficially dubbed the “couples ride” because so many people showed up with their partner. I think its an awesome way to start the day with your significant other. On the flip side, I’ve noticed couples that meet up after work and sweat together. You connect with each other & you connect with your own body. Plus, it’s sexy to see your partner working hard in a class.
