Would You Do A Workout Class With A Full-Service Bar?
By Kelly Douglas
If you've ever finished a gym session sweaty, panting from exhaustion, and questioning why you bothered to work out in the first place, you might wonder how to make exercise more enjoyable. A New York-based studio called GRIT BXNG offers an unconventional alternative to working out with a rather controversial twist.
Apart from the nightclub music that blasts through its studios and its high-intensity treadmill-based workout, the internet has been buzzing about GRIT BXNG due to its full-service bar. Featuring a variety of cocktails, beers, and mocktails, the studio even holds themed parties with specialty drinks after some of its classes, so you can bring your A-game to the workout and then watch the studio transform into a nightclub.
While a workout studio/nightclub/bar can combination sound motivating, it might not be such a great idea, according to University Hospitals. When you work out, you burn calories, but the fewer calories you have in your system, the more an alcoholic drink will affect you; so, consuming an adult beverage after exercising could get you a little bit too far under the influence.
