My healthy: Tara Lipinski

The iconic figure skater’s favorite Equinox class and travel-friendly workout equipment

Figure skating legend Tara Lipinski took home a gold for the United States during the 1998 Winter Olympic Games in Nagano, Japan when she was just 15. The Philadelphia native will be back at the games this February delivering NBC’s figure skating commentary alongside Johnny Weir. Lipinski has continued her athletic lifestyle well after retiring from professional competition, and revealed to Furthermore the healthy things she can’t live without.

equinox’s gold barre class

“It’s such a fun experience to mix my knowledge from ice skating and my love for barre. It fuses them together to make a class that’s really difficult, but I love it. When I go to it, I’m so sore in the following days it feels like I was on the ice.”

gliding discs

“These are great because they mimic the same thing you do on the ice as you’re skating. They allow you to get in that low speed-skater position, sliding your legs in and out. I’m always looking for a workout that gets as close to skating as possible. I’ve tried so many things and nothing kicks my butt like skating does.”
