It's usually right around this time — between the third and fourth weeks of January — that more than half the people who made New Year's resolutions to eat better have abandoned them, according to research.
But juice brand Evolution Fresh aims to help you make one more run at those resolutions — while also getting in some clever branding — by offering everyone a free three-pack of green juice next week, to coincide with National Green Juice Day. (Yes, that is a thing.)
Go to greenjuiceday.com starting at 1 p.m. Thursday, enter your address, and sometime before 9 that night someone from delivery company Postmates will show up with three complimentary 11-ounce bottles of cold-pressed Smooth Greens & Kale. Available wherever Postmates operates -- including Los Angeles, West Hollywood, Culver City, Beverly Hills and Newport Beach -- while supplies last.
A break at the Wall
Can't choose between high intensity circuit training and spinning? At the Wall, a new boutique Los Angeles pop-up fitness studio, you don't have to. Celebrity trainer Jason Wimberly, who usually charges $200 an hour for personal training and has worked with Selma Blair and Jane Lynch, set up the 1,000-square-foot space right before Christmas while his West Hollywood permanent studio is under construction. Designed for all fitness levels and limited to 10 participants at a time, a 60-minute 123 Stack class begins with 10 minutes of work on the core (with no sit-ups), followed by 20 minutes of high-intensity circuit training, then a half-hour of indoor cycling (shoes can be borrowed at no cost on-site). There are about 13 classes a week. Wimberly says the routine is designed for accelerated body sculpting. The Wall Pop-Up, 7503 Sunset Blvd. First class is free, subsequently $15 each, with discounts for packages. thewallfitness.com
Get spiritual in DTLA
Here's an idea for a spiritual staycation: the Ritz-Carlton downtown is hosting a daylong emotional wellness retreat Jan. 29 to coincide with the new moon. Get there at 9.30 a.m. for rooftop Hatha yoga by the hotel pool, led by popular instructor Clio Manuelian. The rest of the day will consist of a bento box lunch at WP24 by Wolfgang Puck, a guided meditation session and a spa treatment: Take your pick from traditional massages and facials or alternative therapies like reiki, reflexology or cranial sacral massage. The Ritz-Carlton Spa, 900 W. Olympic Blvd. $295 and up per person. Reservations: (213) 763-4400.
