And this summer, the Southampton Arts Center’s west lawn was transformed into a dance-workout space.

These outdoor gyms are the new normal of group fitness.

Because companies like SoulCycle, Barry’s, and the up-and-coming dance-inspired workout FORWARD__Space haven’t been allowed to reopen in major cities like New York and Los Angeles,

My fellow fitness instructors, trainers, coaches, and influencers:

“It is patient care that empowers the patient to take charge of their own health through coaching and support from their provider, rather than the paternalistic

How Parents Feel About Their Kids in COVID-19 Vaccine Trials

Katelyn Evans, 16, has never met Randy Kerr—and there’s no reason she should have. It was 66 years ago that Kerr, then 6, became briefly famous, receiving the first injection of Jonas Salk’s experimental polio vaccine during the massive field trial of hundreds of thousands of children in the spring of 1954. History notes that the vaccine worked, and the children who stepped forward to receive either the actual shot or a placebo were heroically dubbed the Polio Pioneers.

Evans is a pioneer of the modern age, one of an eventual group of 600 children in the 16-to-17 year-old
