2017 is here! If it hasn’t already, your fitness routine starts today. Group exercise classes are one of the easiest ways to stick to your New Year’s resolutions. If the people around you are pushing themselves, you can too! Plus, once you’re a regular, you will have to answer to the instructor if you skip. We know when it comes to group fitness, there are a lot of options, but we are here to help! Sweat it out in some of the best classes 2017 has to offer.
AG6™: Fitness meets arcade in this high-intensity workout. The class launched at Asphalt Green’s Upper East Side campus in April 2016, and everyone has been buzzing about it since. Walls and floors respond to touch and come alive with integrated LED light and sound. Your senses are so engaged, time flies! In just 45 minutes, burn up to 1,000 calories and build endurance, strength, balance, speed, agility, reaction time, and overall fitness.
Pilates: Turn your six-pack goals into reality. Your core will feel the burn in Pilates. Our dedicated reformer studios at both Asphalt Green locations allow participants to hone their craft under the guidance of experienced instructors. Regular practice prevents back pain and improves balance and stability by focusing on proper alignment and posture.
Yoga: Take your mind away from the hustle and bustle of New York City living in a yoga class. Yoga connects the body and mind through poses that improve strength and flexibility. Yoga is about being present and focusing on breathing through each movement. After bending, twisting, and maybe even turning upside down, you’ll feel refreshed and ready to tackle 2017.
Recreational basketball: If team sports are more your thing, take your skills to the indoor gymnasium at our Battery Park City campus. Stop by for friendly competition during open recreation time or sign up to play in a more organized and competitive league.
Martial arts: Test your strength on the mat. Develop self-defense skills and dynamic physical fitness in Asphalt Green’s adult martial arts classes. Whether you are a beginner or itching to get back on into the sport, our program will leave you feeling empowered, strong, and more confident. We offer classes geared toward women and coed classes that focus on mixed martial arts.
