Fitness Challenge: Day 55
Longtime Park Slope residents remember years-long discussions about the Park Slope Armory, which finally opened with a variety of fitness activities 2 years ago.
The Armory, run by the nearby Prospect Park Y, offers a variety of exercise classes in barebones classrooms. The shining feature of the Armory is the indoor track, a 6 lane, state-of-the-art 200 meter track.
The track surrounds a full-size basketball court that is also used for soccer.
The Armory doesn't have showers, but it does have communal dressing rooms. It also doesn't provide towels, so if you are the type who drips sweat during a step class, bring your own.
