Past Issues

Here’s what’s happening in Austin.

With the longest day of the year behind us, we can officially say it’s summer (though, it’s felt like it for months here in Austin). So, without further ado, here are the latest happenings in the Austin health and fitness scene.

🛶 Pedal Power

Next time you hit Lady Bird Lake, give your arms a break in a pedal-powered ‘yak! That’s right — you can now reserve pedal-powered kayaks from local outfitter Rowing Dock. Whether you’re planning on covering a lot of ground or are in the mood for a more leisurely experience, secure your kayak ahead of time on their website, so when you get to their launch spot in Zilker Park, you’ll be ready to go.

🥤 Sparkling Sips

Local health-conscious taco spot, Austin Daily Press and Waterloo Sparkling Water have joined forces to create a new line of scratch-made “sodas crafted with fresh fruit and Waterloo Original sparkling water. Stop by their MLK location to try out the Strawberry and Basil or Pineapple and Ginger flavors — they’re only available while supplies last!

🍌 Healthy Hydration

The Coffeehouse at Caroline on Congress is in the business of keeping you cool and refreshed this season despite the Texas heat. That’s why they’ve added two new smoothies to their drink menu. Introducing the Berry Basil, made with strawberries, blueberries, basil, bananas, acai, pomegranates, and coconut milk, and the Go Green packed with pineapple, spinach, chia seeds, banana, coconut milk, agave, and lime juice. We’ll cheers to that!

✨ Sleep Under the Stars

We know that in Austin, there’s always something exciting happening in the city. But there’s nothing quite like escaping to nature for a summer campout, and with all of the nearby sites, you’ve got no reason not to grab your gear and go. Whether you’re pitching your tent at Inks Lake State Park after a day of cliff jumping or resting your head in a teepee in Marfa, there’s an option for every kind of camper. Not sure where to check out first? Peep our Instagram for an up-close look at some of our favorite spots.

🏙 In Other News

The Austin skyline is always growing, and come September 2021, there will be a new silhouette! Airbnb has announced plans for a hotel-like living development called Natiivo on the south end of Rainey Street. With hyperlocal touches meant to reflect Austin’s culture, the 33-story complex will feature studio, one- and two-bedroom units (that are already available for sale), plus a 24-hour concierge service, a rooftop swimming pool with fireplace, a clubhouse, fitness center, coffee bar, dog wash, and so much more!


Happy belated birthday to Cameron, co-owner of Pure Pilates Austin! Here’s to another great year!
