To quote PureWow, what’s better than caffeine? Morning classes in the park! Join New York Health & Racquet Club for classes at 7, 8 and 9 AM on the South Plaza (near 14th Street).
Then show up ready to sweat after work with Crunch Gym for classes at 5, 6 and 7 PM on the North Plaza (near 17th Street). If running is more your speed, join Paragon Sports Run Club at 6:30 PM for a workout with trained running specialists through the city.
Sign up for classes 15 minutes before at the Paragon Sports tent, and we encourage you to bring your own mat or towel. Both gyms are also on site with gym swag and membership trials for participants.
Each week on the South Plaza we’ll open our Children’s Pavilion, meet Animals with Art Farm, play Yoga StoryTime, read and sing along Story time with 14th Street Y, and workout with Pop Fit Kids.
