Here’s what’s happening in Austin.

Howdy, Austin! 

If you can believe it, our revamped newsletter is already two months old. So, I figured this was the perfect opportunity for me to formally introduce myself. 

I’m Sierra, your local contributor and writer of the Austin Fitt Weekly. I’m a Texan by birth, but I made it to ATX as fast as I could. You can catch me at Black Swan Yoga any night of the week and out trail running or swimming at the greenbelt on the weekends. Oh, and I’m obsessed with poke and smoothies, so you can always count on me for a trendy or tasty recommendation as well! Speaking of, here’s this week’s news from the Austin health and fitness scene.

💪 Gains In Music Lane

Luxury fitness center Equinox is finally making its way to Austin, opening a club in the Music Lane Development on South Congress this fall. The new location is expected to be three stories and will include a spa, sauna, and studios for group fitness classes, including Pilates, barre, cycling, and more!

💗 Find Your Tribe

If you’re looking to challenge yourself and find a new community to help hold you accountable, we’ve got just the thing! Athletic Outcomes is starting a new small group training session just for women that will meet for an hour twice a week. Workouts start July 23, so send an email to coach Kat Libby at, and get ready to start an inspiring new fitness journey.

☀️ Sweets And Sunshine

Summertime’s certainly sweeter on a patio, and lucky for us, East Austin vegan bake shop Capital City Bakery has opened up a new outside bar area! Grab some friends and try out a few of their favorites like the (100% vegan) sausage, cheese, and jalapeño kolache or a homemade wildberry pop tart and enjoy the new outdoor space this weekend!

🎁 The Getting Is Good

Maybe you’ve heard: we have an Instagram dedicated to all things health and fitness in Austin! If you love epic shots of nearby food and workouts, outdoorsy inspo, and all the latest local news, it pays to follow… literally. We’re giving away Fitt swag, as well as $100 Whole Foods and lululemon gift cards, to one lucky winner! To enter, you just have to follow our account, like the post, and tag two friends in the comments by July 19 at midnight. It’s that simple!

🍕 A New Plant-Based Pie

Calling all pizza fans! Plant-based eatery Counter Culture introduced a new menu item this month: Buffalo Cauliflower Pizza! Turn the heat up with this delicious combination, or try some of their other rotating toppings — you can call or check out the menu board in-store for details. Not sold yet? All of their pizzas are made with organic, whole wheat cornmeal crust or can be made gluten-free for no extra charge!

☕️ Co-workin’ With Coffee

This week, the WeWork building on Barton Springs Road opened a brand new cafe showcasing two local tenants: Tiny House Coffee Roasters and Rosen’s Bagels! With a full espresso bar and delicious healthy options like kimchi lox and a vegan shmear, this spot is serving up sustenance that will power you through even the toughest workday. But we’re not done yet, because there’s another exciting coffee and co-working spot opening in Austin next Thursday: Craftwork Coffee Co.! Located in the Domain Flatiron building, stop by the modern space for a simple but artistically-crafted coffee menu, and feel free to bring along your laptop.
