Fitness Challenge: Day 58
Basement gyms are often cramped, depressing places, but Harbor Fitness in Park Slope, Brooklyn, has high ceilings and enough shiny surfaces that you forget you are below grade.
The huge gym, at the edge of Park Slope, has 2 other Brooklyn locations and all 3 are open 24 hours a day during the week. I don't know how crowded the gym gets at 3am on a Tuesday, but even on a Sunday morning, usual prime time, the gym felt empty.
The Ultimate Conditioning class was another story. Women were lined up before the class, making sure to get a prime spot in the studio.
I lurked in the back, since I didn't know what to expect. What I got was a tough workout, with weights, that touched on every body part.
The gym has an interesting mix of unusual classes, form a jump rope class to Grid Iron Spin and Grid Iron workout, both taught by a NY Sharks Women’s Professional Football Player.
Didn't even know NY had professional women's football
