5 New Year Resolutions You Can Accomplish at 2M

2M is the perfect place to obtain all of your new year aspirations.

 

The New Year is here, which means it is time for a fresh set of goals, otherwise known as, “New Year Resolutions”. The challenge with the new year is finding the time and motivation to move down that checklist.

To help you out with the time and convenience piece, we have curated a list of 5 New Year Resolutions you can accomplish right from the comfort of your own apartment community.

1) FITNESS

The number one New Year Resolution on everyone’s list is fitness. What separates 2M residents from the rest of the pack is that you have access to a free, fully equipped, fitness center right below your feet! Any fitness goal you’re hoping to reach this year is attainable with an endless list of fitness equipment including, two Peloton bikes, yoga mats, multiple thread mills, dumbbells, squat machines, and more!

Take your fitness goals seriously this New Year inside of our 2M fitness center.

And when you’re not working out, you can work on your jump-shot on our basketball court located right beneath the fitness center.

2) BE MORE SOCIAL

 

The year tends to move very quickly. If you’re working for a living like everyone else, it’s easy to lose track of your social life. Don’t let that become you in 2020; at 2M, we have multiple areas in the building that are perfect for hosting an event or two. These include our Skyline rooftop lounge area, resident clubroom, television room, and a few outdoor spaces. It’s as easy as going to the front desk to reserve your date and time.

So, throw that viewing party, Super Bowl Party, Paint and Sip, or whatever else you have in mind to take your social life up a notch in the new year.

3) ENJOY THE OUTDOORS

 

If one of your New Year Resolutions is to get out more, we have the perfect amenity spaces for that too! If you’re not enjoying the ideal weekend over-looking the beauty of DC on our rooftop this Spring and Summer, then you’re doing something wrong!

If you’re looking for more of a quiet outdoor space, our courtyard area is a prime location for an excellent book while enjoying your favorite drink. Remember that enjoying the outdoors doesn’t have to mean hiking or running, sometimes it’s merely getting outside of your four walls.

4) YOGA

 The most consistent theme with a new year is trying new things. Things you would have never thought of trying before. At 2M, we host an experience that a lot of people are curious about, but have never experienced. This experience is yoga. If you are looking to expand your boundaries this year and focus on self-growth, we challenge you to try one of our weekly yoga classes offered on the 2M basketball court.

Be the person who is open to new things and actually takes the step to make new things a reality, instead of the one who always wondered.

5) SWIM MORE

 

Even though we are in January, the warm season is not as far you think. Sooner than later, the 2M pool will be open, and the months from there will blink by until it’s closed again. Remember last year when you said you want to get into the water more next year? That year is this one.

 Find some time to enjoy a sweet dip from the comfort of your apartment community on our rooftop pool this year.

What is 2M Street Made Of?

Hello, Friends!  We hope everyone had a great weekend.  With the opening of 2M Street, we are so enjoying meeting potential residents and showing off our brand new building in NoMa.  There have, of course, been questions along the way, so we’ve created this infographic to show you exactly what 2M Street is made of!

Commit to be Fit in the New Year

A new year is upon us, and the start of January will surely bring resolutions galore.  On January 2nd, the treadmills at your local gym are bound to be filled with runners looking to shed the cheesecake and eggnog of the past week.  Getting fit is a popular goal for the new year, but how can we stay motivated throughout the year ahead and beyond?  Furthermore, how do you begin?  To help jump start your healthier new life, we consulted with local personal trainer and fitness guru Errick McAdams.  Errick has been working in DC for the past four years, motivating and transforming clients with his supportive and upbeat attitude.  Lucky for us, he took the time to answer a few questions about kick-starting your wellness routine:

What is a great first step that we could start doing today?

The first step that anyone can take towards getting fit is to take a walk. Walking is great exercise and almost anyone can do it. Not hard enough? Put some hills in your route or use the incline on the treadmill. Another first step is: Drink more water. Actually, drink only water (black coffee and tea being the exceptions). Challenge yourself to drink only water for an entire month. You will feel awesome!

 Why is hiring a personal trainer a good idea?

The biggest benefit to hiring a personal trainer is having someone to hold you accountable to the lifestyle you want.

What are your go-to apartment exercises when you are limited on space and equipment?

My favorite apartment exercises are jumping jacks, push ups, planks and burpees
