Fitness Challenge: Day 36
Triomph Fitness, in a converted warehouse in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn has a small strength area with machines and weights, plus a studio for a variety of classes.
If you are an early riser, you can take boot camp most mornings. On Sundays, a 'body blaze' class is similar to an hour-long boot camp. We did jumping jacks, squats, burpees, reverse push-ups (going from lying on the floor into push up position) and lunges, sometimes with weights.
Classes are an unbelievably cheap $5 each.
The bare-bones gym offers little in the way of amenities, though it does have a cafe.
For the weekend class, since the rest of the building was empty, we run down halls, and up and down stairs.
The entertaining instructor demonstrated exercises and exhorted us to work harder and faster. He made the time pass quickly.
I was both surprised, and relieved, when class ended.
