Brooklyn Bridge Boot Camp
Most boot camps give fitness seekers a view of another person's back during class, so when certified trainer Ariane Hundt started her boot camp, she chose her favorite sightseeing spots in the city. Students make a round trip across the Brooklyn bridge, with unmatched views of the city along the way. But it's not your eyes that get the main workout. Self magazine named Ariane's class one of the hottest boot camps in the country because participants also challenge themselves using bridge structures and benches as exercise props. Ariane's stable of trainers lead other outdoor boot camps with scenic views as well, including one that begins and ends in Central Park. Each is a small-group session capped at 15–20 students that challenges people of virtually any fitness level, making it easy for students to join at any time. They can also get support in reaching their fitness goals with the company's nutrition and weight-loss programs.
