Wellness, as any SoulCycle devotee will tell you, doesn't come cheap these days. There are the weekly classes at $30 a pop, the $180-a-month gym membership, the daily $10 cold-pressed green juice, the pricey all-natural and organic skincare products, and the piles of fresh produce and hard-to-find supplements from Whole Foods...not to mention some of the more extravagant options out there ($500-an-hour trainers, $750 facials) and the sporty designer duds to complete the look.
