As the adage goes, news travels fast. And, in a city as socially connected as S.F., "fast" doesn't even cut it — try lightning speed. That's why we local editors work around the clock to keep our eyes on the prize and ears to the ground to bring forth the buzziest and freshest headlines in and around our city. From a juice-cleanse experiment to the exciting openings of a few new workout spots, here's everything you need to know this week.

Fitness buffs, the wait is finally over. Barry’s Bootcamp's shiny, new SoMa space is here. Opening weekend starts today and includes a boatload of classes hosted by top trainers, including none other than the man, the legend, Barry himself. (Barry’s Bootcamp)

Refinery29 editors Ali Hoffman and Angela Tafoya (raises hand!) endured three juice-filled days and lived to talk about it. The Chalkboard Mag chronicled the cleanse — from the cravings for a smashed burrito to pineapple allergies — and you can check it out here. (The Chalkboard Mag)

Still dragging your feet on getting Dad a gift? BloomThat is here to rescue you— with bacon. And, socks. Be your pop's favorite kiddo ever when chocolate-covered bacon and a sockulent show up at the door. Order today and tomorrow! (BloomThat)

It's a week of fitness-driven news: The new Equinox, situated in an old theater on Union Street, is now open. The 35,000-square-foot space houses multiple studios (including one of the prettiest yoga studios we’ve ever seen), luxe machines, lovely locker rooms, and more. Now, that makes us want to work out.

Samovar Tea moved into its gorgeous new Valencia Street space — and tea lovers, you’re going to flip. The spot differs from the other locales with its modern, streamlined, and awe-worthy setup. Time for tea, anyone? (Eater)
