Becycle + AVOCAI
SATURDAY MORNING - YOUR NATURAL HIGH IS SORTED WITH A SWEATY FIX AT BECYCLE FOLLOWED BY A RELAX AND REFUEL (WITHOUT THE CROWDS) AT AVOCAI
START: Becycle - Brunnenstraße 24, 10115 Berlin.
FINISH: Avocai - Brunnenstraße 165, 10115 Berlin (a short hop across the road and you're there).
U - BAHN: Rosenthaler Platz.
THE WORKOUT: The Becycle signature 10:30am Be45 class - 45 minutes of high-intensity spinning and hard work to start your Saturday on a high. Depending on the theme of the class you’ll be working to specific timely sprints, climbing hills or going for distance. If you want to start your Saturday with less adrenalin then we recommend Power Yoga at 10:00am or for early birds, the 8:45am Barre class, which still works every inch of you without the pounding heart-rate. Enjoy the luxury showers and bring a change of clothes to shower and refresh before heading over the road to Avocai.
THE FOOD: Avocai's food will no doubt hit the spot; smoothie bowls, power porridge, a variety of eggs in different styles, buddha and salad bowls - its got the lot. Plus you can add a hit of protein (vegan or regular) to your bowls and smoothies for an extra muscle refuel post-class. We recommend the “Green Protein Power Bowl” with quinoa, cucumber, courgetti noodles, pumpkin, sugar snaps, almonds all topped with tahini maple dressing. Protein extras include scrambled tofu with pesto, salmon or eggs. A glass of gut-friendly home-made Kombucha is also a good idea. The cafe is light and airy, you can really chill-out here and take your sweet time over lunch (although your food is likely to go pretty quick). Speedy service means you can avoid the post-workout hanger. If you’re still hungry, grab a few coconut protein balls on your way out.
THE PRICE: Think of this as a weekend treat. The class will set you back €23 a go - first timers get 2 classes for the price of 1. Avocai's prices are a little higher than My Goodness - the cafe that’s attached to Becycle. Bowls are around the €11 - €13 ballpark. “Green Protein Power Bowl” is €11. Extra egg is €1, scrambled tofu €2, smoked salmon €4. Home-made Kombucha €2.9. Berry coconut protein balls €2 each.
BEST FOR: Kicking off the weekend on a health high.
BONUS: Next week Becycle will be running a pop-up over the river in Xbeurg at the FvF Friends Space where you can enjoy one-off Barre and HIIT classes south of the river. The same industrial vibe, great beatz and intense work-out for €15 a class. Book via Becycle’s website.
***FYI*** there aren’t any showers, so you might want to think twice about a fancy meal out straight from your work-out.
