The popular Greenwich Avenue juice bar prepares fresh juice and smoothie drinks perfect for fueling up before and after a low-impact cardio workout at ClubSweat in Greenwich or on the go.
Ever wonder what you should eat before or after a cardio workout? Nutritionists recommend a pre-workout snack that's less than 200 calories and includes both low-glycemic carbohydrates and lean protein. And, afterward, replenish the body with a post-workout recovery smoothie. ClubSweat recently launched an online digital platform that allows users to work out from any location equipt with elliptical machines. The classes are 45 mins and mix perfectly with the menu at Meli-Melo on Greenwich Avenue, especially the juice bar menu!
Established Meli-Melo in 1994, Meli-Melo now offers a specialty menu designed for health and wellness. Customers can purchase made-to-order drinks or select from a variety of options, the popular juice bar also offers a 3-day cleanse program in addition to fresh lemon, turmeric, ginger, and wheat grass shots.
