Wintertime is often synonym with cocooning, curling up under a warm blanket by a fireplace, stuffing our cheeks with sweet treats – because we’ll have plenty of time to get back in shape before bikini season arrives, or so we think. – Here, at Ze Square, we are all about balancing a little bit of indulging with staying healthy and active all year round. But being active does not have to be boring. ON our article entitled The Ultimate Health, Fitness & Wellness Guide To Montreal, we introduced you to an amazing High Intensity Interval Training gym in town, as well as a great Hot Yoga Studio. On this article, we will be a little more exotic, by presenting to you a Tango studio and a Pilates one.
