Another new year, the same old resolutions: 1) Work out 2) Recycle.

Since crowded gyms terrify me in January, maybe this is the year that I commit to trying something new. Like Pilates. And there’s no better place to check off two resolutions at once than at Studio Evolve, a neighborhood studio that prides itself on being “green.”

“Our carpet is recycled plastic, the paint is low-toxic, our light fixtures are on sensors and all of our materials are on recycled paper,” says Adrin Stauffer, who opened the Wallingford studio in June with Martine Dedek. “And parking is easy.”

Which brings me to Resolution No. 3: Have less road rage.

Studio Evolve also offers private sessions for new moms, who can bring their babies along. Because it’s never too early to learn the importance of exercise and recycling.

The studio is at 3333 Wallingford Ave. N. in Seattle (206-547-9616 or www.studio-evolve.com).
