Fitness Challenge: Day 46
24 Hour Fitness Midtown has a huge subterranean space with such high ceilings that you don't feel like you are underground. On the street level entry floor, there is a cafe and a small area with a TRX station.
The 4 foot deep pool is appealing; little danger of going underwater here. And there is a large studio next to a spin room, bright, clean locker rooms and plenty of space to do whatever exercise floats your boat.
I check out a class called 30-60-90. It has nothing to do with right angles. We do a series of exercises for 30 seconds: push-ups, squats, bicep curls. Then again for 60 seconds.
And then, yes, for 90 seconds.
The only problem with the intense, hour-long class; it ends just as spin gets out, and there's a line for showers.
And Derek Jeter is the spokesperson for the club; painful for a New York Mets fan.
But not as painful as 90 seconds of burpees.
