1. NYC Hangouts

     New York is a great place to live, work and play. We love it so much we thought we would share our favorite hangouts with you.

    There is nothing better than strolling through the streets of West Village and popping in and out of all the wonderful boutiques. Each store facade is charming in its own unique way. You can find popular brands and new emerging designers all on the same block!

     

     Hit the courts and get your sweat on at Randall’s Island. This is a great facility and easily accessible from Manhattan. The boutique is our go-to one stop shop for all things tennis – and of course they carry L’Etoile Sport.

     

     Why take a regular yoga class when you can spice it up with a hip hop flavor.  New York offers so many different takes on your average workouts and we are elated to find this gem.

     Favorite place to eat? That’s a trick question. However, we are currently loving Avra. The delicious greek cuisine with an emphasis on seafood is every bit as beautiful as it is delectable. Everything on the menu is made with such care we cannot wait to go back for more.

     

     If you haven’t had crack coffee then you have been missing out. This delicious energy boosting coffee from HU Kitchen is our favorite cup in town. Whoever thought grass fed butter and coffee would pair so well.

  2. Off-Court Tennis Workouts

    Strength training for tennis involves strengthening the upper and lower body for maximum performance on the tennis court. This helps protect against injuries to the joints as well as build strength in your muscles. As the game of tennis becomes more intense so does the training needed off the court. Rock a tank and short or legging to feel your best during this workout!

    Utilizing gym equipment and a jumprope is great for tennis cross training! Simply set up an interval circuit. Like you would have in a real match situation, this allows you to do quick intervals of different movements and keeps your body guessing. As long as your heart-rate is up high you are also getting the cardio aspect. We recommend a legging and tank top layered with a zip hoodie for this work out.

    Swimming provides amazing aerobic conditioning as a switch up to court play. As a sport it is much easier on your joints not to mention therapeutic to be in the water. Don't let the calm water fool you, a few sets of laps and you will definitely be feeling it the next day! 

    Hot Yoga helps to improve flexibility, plain and simple.  Not only does it mentally relax you while balancing your body, it lengthens your muscles and releases your joints. Many pros including Andy Murry swear by it - so it gets our vote! For this we recommend wearing a sports bra and short or legging to feel you best during this sweat induced hour.
