In-person exercise classes are popping up around New York City for you to get active and some fresh air. While our Zoom classes have been amazing keeping us active indoors and mentally sane, many of us still miss being able to go to our favorite studios and work out in person with others. Luckily, many studios have adapted to the outdoors and some indoor gyms are even getting ready to welcome their members back at limited capacity. If you are looking to get out for some exercise, browse through our roundup of outdoor exercise classes.
Psst…The school year is almost here. Make sure to also take care of yourself with Back-to-School Wellness Products for Moms: Vitamins, CBD, and More
**Please check the website for updates before heading to a class.**
