A new year has begun- one we hope is the best one yet for you and your loved ones.

As the new year starts, a lot of people like to think about resolutions for improving their lifestyle and well being. Some strive to cook healthier meals or organize that one abandoned junk drawer. Whatever the case, these new goals are supposed help you start 2019 with a bang! And what a better way to start January than sticking to your workout routine during your visit to New York City.

Though it might be hard to keep up with your workout during the winter, here are a couple of options for you to stay in track in a fun and accessible way, even when traveling in the busy city.


Shape Up NYC

Shape Up NYC is a free exercise program created by the Department of Parks and Recreation of New York City. This program offers fitness classes for free in New York.
