Glow Up! Spin, Spa, and Repeat on the Upper East Side

Treat yourself to a healthy day of exercise and beauty.

With seemingly more gyms, spas, and juiceries per block than anywhere else, the Upper East Side is NYC’s healthiest neighborhood—and the perfect spot for a feel-better, look-better afternoon.

SPIN: ‘Til You Drop with Stacey

SoulCycle‘s East 83rd Street location is the spot that started it all. Home to founder Stacey Griffith—who teaches Monday, Wednesday, and Friday—the high-intensity classes are always packed. Get the app or go online on Monday at noon to book. 1470 Third Avenue (at East 83rd Street)

DRINK: Your Greens at Juice Press

Refuel right next door to SoulCycle. The Mother Earth juice, with cucumber, celery, kale, swiss chard, dandelion, parsley, lemon, and ginger, is as green as it gets. 1474 Third Avenue (at East 83rd Street)

DO: Lengthen Your Lashes

Make your eyes look as bright as your mood at Lash Decor where experts will apply individual extensions—single strands of synthetic hair—to each of your own eyelashes. The lashes stay on for an average of two (glorious!) weeks. 1395 Third Avenue (at East 79th Street)

EAT: Plant-Based Fare at Candle Cafe

Stroll down Third Avenue to 75th Street for some of the city’s best vegan cuisine, including an open-faced avocado BLT with seitan bacon. 1307 Third Avenue (at East 75th Street)

REFRESH: Your Complexion at Face Haus

The Haus Special at this modern, non-stuffy facial bar is a relaxing and effective treatment that ends with an oxygen blast (and is only $65!). We love the World of Difference, too, that includes a peel, extractions, an LED skin boost, and a Vitamin C and algae mask for $145. Best part: no pan flute music! 1140 Third Avenue (between East 66th and 67th Streets)

SHOP: For New Workout Gear at Lululemon and Nike

End the day with new, worth-it leggings (they’re super flattering) from Lululemon and fresh kicks from Nike, both right next door, so you can do it all again tomorrow—in style. Lululemon, 1127 Third Avenue (at East 66th Street); Nike Upper East Side, 1131 Third Avenue (between East 66th and 67th Streets)
