Four Ways to Burn Off That Turkey In and Around Seneca One
After (or before!) you get gobbling this Thanksgiving, you might want to get going and get that blood flowing. Here are some ideas on how to keep things fit and fun in and around downtown Buffalo this holiday week. Burn that turkey or earn that extra helping of mashed potatoes!
- Turkey Trot (Virtually)
This year’s 125th Annual YMCA Turkey Trot in Buffalo is going to be looking a little different than in year’s past. Delaware Ave will be much quieter on Thursday without its costumed runners and cheering fans at water (or beer) stops, but you can still participate in this year’s virtual event! Experienced runners or hungover walkers can complete the 8km race wherever they would like, anytime between Thursday, November 26 and Sunday, November 29. Plus all participants will not only receive a t-shirt, but they will also receive a commemorative mask. How’s that for peak 2020?
- Take a Waterfront Run
Bundle up and take a run around Canalside for a quick workout. Although it is much quieter in the wintertime than it is in the summer, you can still head over and enjoy the fresh air and great views. Looking to clock some more miles? Try the Wellness Trail at Outer Harbor, a nice green break from Buffalo’s industrial heart.
Maybe if you’re lucky, your run will be enhanced by the smell of Cheerios wafting from General Mills.
- Take A Hike
Don’t forget that Buffalo has easy access to the natural wonders of Niagara Falls! Drive on up, or take a train from the brand new Exchange Street station just steps from Seneca One. From the Niagara Gorge Overlook to the more challenging Devil’s Hole, Niagara Falls has hikes suitable for the whole family, from the kids to the more experienced outdoors people.
- Hustle at Home
Now more than ever there are options to break a sweat at home! Every week Canalside drops a Funday Fitness video that you can do from anywhere in the world. Other local gyms and fitness studios are also getting creative to offer classes you can do from home, like Space On Seneca’s Virtual Yoga, Barre Centric’s Virtual Studio, Sweat716, Boxstar On-Demand, and many more.
Residents of Seneca One are especially lucky to have 24/7 access to a state-of-the-art fitness center, including a shiny new Peloton Tread+ for those trying to replicate the boutique fitness experience at their residential gym.
The Future of Fitness at Seneca One
Health and wellness is definitely at home at Seneca One for both residents and visitors! While there are limits on how we can sweat and fuel up together, we are excited for everything on deck for healthy living in downtown Buffalo. When it’s safe to do so, Seneca One will continue partnering with local businesses to host creative and fun fitness and social events for the community, like our Urban Runs with Flying Bison Brewing Company and Yoga at Seneca One with Space on Seneca.
When the city thaws and Reddy Bikeshare season starts, you can grab a bike right outside of Seneca One to cycle around and explore the city.
After your workouts, you’ll also be able to fuel up at The Blend at Seneca One. This local favorite mobile protein shake business is excited to find a more permanent home at Seneca One.
