OUR FIT REGISTRY: The Culinary Couple
A coffee subscription from an NYC hotspot and luxe French cookware were on their wish list.
Lately, some engaged couples are pushing beyond the typical china patterns and flatware sets, asking their friends and family to toast their special day with fitness classes, camping gear, and even high-tech blenders. It's true: fitness registries are having a moment. That’s why Equinox has partnered with Zola, allowing couples to register for memberships and personal training sessions. To give you a better idea of just how healthy a registry can be, Furthermore is profiling a series of high-performing couples—and getting a glimpse at their unique wish lists. First up was adventurous couple Seema Shah and Ajay Kulkarni. Here, meet the second pair.
Elise Voss Runde and Geoff Tresley, self-proclaimed fitness-junkies, recently tied the knot in Laguna Beach, California. Then, they headed to Bora Bora for a very fit honeymoon. “Every morning we did a quick run around the island and we went paddleboarding almost every day," says Voss Runde. "We also did some circuit training together, always trying to keep the workouts outside to enjoy the beauty of the location.” Intending to stay just as active post-honeymoon, the couple's registry was full of wellness-related items.
Vitamix® A2300 Blender
"We make smoothies almost every day, but really needed to up our blender game. Now that we have the Vitamix, I’ve been excited to try Kelly LeVeque's recipes," says Voss Runde.
Picnic at Ascot Yoga Mat and Bag
"I’ve been practicing yoga for a long time, but Geoff recently started his own practice. It’s been fun for us to do together, and now, he has his own yoga mat," says Voss Runde.
HoMedics Aspire Diffuser
"This diffuser has been a welcome addition to our bedside table. We use the lavender oil to help us unwind at the end of a busy day," says Voss Runde.
Michael Aram Butterfly Gingko Pitcher
"Michael Aram is one of my favorite designers and artists," says Voss Runde, calling attention to the gold butterflies on this pitcher. "Butterflies symbolize transformation, hope, and joy," she says.
Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast Iron 7.25 Qt. Round French Oven
"I’ll admit that my cooking skills are a work in progress, but I’m hoping this French oven inspires me to cook more," says Voss Runde.
Caeden Linea Nº10 Wireless On-Ear Headphones
"We travel a lot and were in need of noise isolation headphones for long flights. I love the sleek design of this pair," says Voss Runde.
Sonos PLAY:1 Wireless Speaker
"We love listening to music (especially country) and being outdoors. This speaker is great for hanging out with our friends in Central Park or date nights at home," says Voss Runde.
