New Yorkers are extremely focused on health and staying fit, even during the super cold winter months. You can always see them carrying their gym clothes to work, so they had hit the gym when their day is over.
Yet, many of the early birds and prefer to start the day by sweating it out and getting energized for the rest of the day.

The AG6™, was the one we shot in the video above! Yes, it was embarrassing, since I look totally goofy with no coordination. But, it’s “a high-intensity, circuit-based program and fitness experience like no other. AG6™ focuses on movement with purpose to uncover your athletic sixth sense and strengthen all major muscle groups, burning up to 1,000 calories in 45 minutes.”
I’m sure you’ll do better than me!

I’ve always loved rock climbing, but besides looking very easy, it’s really not. I’m not too good with heights either, but Brooklyn Boulders equipment makes you feel completely safe and tied up!
It’s surely not only a physical activity. I believe it’s even more a mental challenge, than physical.
They offer different classes that are 60-min long for all different levels, besides being able to have your own personal trainer and still, a fitness center too.
I loved the 4-week course, with 8 sessions, called Climb Like A Girl! It is “taught by women, for women. Train as a team as you improve your technique, gain climbing power and improve endurance. Each 2-hour session is progressive, carefully designed to holistically develop your abilities.”
Plus, if you have kids, they do have great options for them to have fun!
Let’s start rocking!
