Long Beach residents have just a few more months to wait for the opening of Olympix Fitness, the upscale boutique fitness center originally slated to open this month, according to business partners Jarrett Tooley and Kurt Schneiter.
With the advent of social media, days in honor of sports, food and activities have gained new prominence. And today isn’t just any old day—it’s International Yoga Day. Here are some suggestions on ways to celebrate such an occasion.
Purple Yoga owner Joe Vogt is looking pretty calm these days, despite his company’s rather frenetic growth in the past five years, including its opening of a Long Beach studio. Vogt’s even eyeing other expansion locations, bringing his business acumen to the world of fitness and spiritual fulfillment.
Giovanna Ferraro, the owner of Groundwork Fitness, shared her workout and life mantra with the Post, as well as how she hopes to use her gym as a way to engage and improve the community.
Last week, the Post sat down with Joey Altobelli, former owner of the now-defunct Crossfit Intersect, and owner of the newly-minted Fourth Street Annex. Altobelli hopes his latest venture will engage fitness enthusiasts of all levels—especially those who probably weren’t Crossfit fans.
Earlier this week, the Post took time to sit down and talk with the owner of downtown Long Beach’s only yoga studio, Danielle Morrill of Yoga on 3rd. Morrill said she hopes her two-year-old, East Village studio provides a healthy place of belonging to Long Beach’s “melting pot” of a community.
