MNT 10 Challenge, started Nov 6 through 19
SoMa's prettiest fitness location, Mntstudio, is hosting its annual Mnt10 fall challenge starting this week. This Pilates and barre challenge asks that participants complete 10 classes in 14 days, with sweet swag for the 10 high achievers who take the most classes including gear from Outdoor Voices and ToeSox, as well as local beauty goodies from local brand Whyld and more. Those who accept the challenge receive 20% off of 10-pack class packs and retail throughout its duration. To bring the challenge into your kitchen, an add-on cleanse with Mnt's in-house nutritionist is available for an extra $50. // Nov 6-19, 766 Brannan St. (SoMa), mntstudio.co/mnt10
SoulCycle's New Ride
It's hard to believe, but after ten years of sweaty-spiritual empire-building, SoulCycle is upgrading their bikes for a second time. Most notable is that they are going from the signature SoulCycle yellow to a sleek black. Noticeable only when you ride are changes to the ride itself: a new magnetic resistance gear for a smoother and more consistent ride and a sleek aluminum frame and more customizable settings throughout. NorCal is the first region to get the new bikes on the west coast, and you can take one for a spin starting November 7 at the Castro studio and November 9 at Soma. // soul-cycle.com

Yoga at the Aquarium
This Thursday, Cal Academy of Sciences is teaming up with Yoga Tree, Outdoor Yoga and Motiv to offer a night of aquarium-side, silent-disco yoga. Have your pick of aquatic scenery: either roll out your mat around the Philippine Coral Reef or the jellyfish-filled Water Planet. Class will be accompanied by a DJ set by DJ Avani. If you're up for a surf and turf yoga experience, Yoga Tree's Dianna Oppenheim is leading a savannah-side yoga session in the African hall.
