Tone up at Sweat + Soul in Kaka‘ako

The holiday and new-year season is a study in contrasts: stress and relaxation, wanton indulgence and firm self-care. Lucky for us, in the islands, there is a bevy of options at our disposal when we decide to step away from the season’s feasts. New favorite Sweat + Soul in Kaka‘ako combines one part Brooklyn cool and three parts intensity with a dash of fun, whipping up a Barre workout as astonishingly effective as it is enjoyable. Barre is a precision based full-body cardio workout that promises—and delivers—noticeable sculpting, toning and lengthening when practiced regularly. More intense than yoga, more accessible than Pilates, Barre has become a celeb favorite for good reason. All of Sweat + Soul’s instructors have been Barre Certified by exhale in New York City, and the studio offers an uncommon advanced level, as well as private classes for true Barre-istas. Group classes $24, 45-minute private sessions for $85, 810 Pohukaina St., Ste. 101, Kaka‘ako, O‘ahu, 593.8384
