Event Navigation

Join us for a free, year-round “Fitness at the Fort” exercise program on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays!

NOTE: Pre-registration is not required, but if you do not pre-register on Eventbrite you will be required to sign the NYC Parks/Fort Tryon Park Trust activity waiver before the class begins. Please arrive 10 minutes early to do so.

This regular fitness class incorporates climbing multiple staircases, stretches and strengthening exercises, notable tree identification, and forest bathing. Led by instructor, Nancy Bruning, BA, MPH, PAPHS.

Classes are structured so that all levels of fitness will be accommodated; however, all classes involve relatively brisk walking and some stairs because of the layout of the park itself. Classes vary according to the season, path conditions, and the weather, but always meet at the Heather Garden entrance.

Tuesday and Thursday classes end at various points near the starting point, including the volleyball courts. Saturday class ends at the Anne Loftus Playground, using the various pieces of equipment, and offers optional after-class group walk to the Greenmarket on Isham Street. All classes end with closing with stretches.

(Note: Fitness Walking does not meet if it is raining or if the actual temperature or wind chill is below 20 degrees F.)
