Get Toned with FitClub

Get your dose of daily exercise with Bryant Park FitClub, a new workout series with instructors from Pilates on Fifth and The Rise NYC, a pop-up boot camp.

There’s nothing like arriving at work with your daily exercise already completed. Bryant Park makes that easy for New Yorkers by introducing Bryant Park FitClub.

Two vigorous FitClub workouts are held each week, scheduled so that you’ll have time to get your blood pumping, freshen up, then appear at the office energized and ready to face the day.

On Mondays, we present Pilates classes conducted by instructors from Pilates on Fifth, our neighbor at the corner of 42nd Street and Fifth Avenue. This ‘mat Pilates’ class will help you tone up and build muscle. Some mats will be provided, but please bring one if you have it. The first class is Monday, May 12 from 7:30 - 8:30am, and continues each Monday through September 22.

On Wednesdays, participate in boot camp with The Rise NYC. A pop-up, community-driven boot camp that meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at various places in Manhattan, The Rise has now found a permanent Wednesday home in Bryant Park starting May 14. The workout consists of a “deck of cards” drill - each card’s suit and number correspond to a different boot camp-style exercise, including push-ups, sit-ups or burpees - followed by circuit training. The Rise workout will definitely make you sweat, but you’ll finish early enough that you can stop at home, shower, and eat breakfast. No equipment is required. The Rise runs 6:30 – 7:00am, and returns each Wednesday through September 24.

If you have signed up for an upcoming marathon, mud run, or other endurance test, these classes are perfect for training. They’re also great for getting in shape for summer.    

**No class held on Memorial Day or Labor Day.
