About Fitness Tours of NY
Ray Dente has been part of the fitness industry for 25 years, conducting outdoor workouts on standup paddleboards and bicycles. His proclivities allowed him to spend ample time on New York's waterfront, soaking up some local history while sweating. In an effort to combine his love for fitness and his city, he created Fitness Tours of NY.
Ray and his guides conduct six tours of the city, each one rooted in a fitness activity that will also allow participants awe-inspiring views of famed landmarks. Visitors mount footbikes—a cross between a bicycle and a kick scooter—to take in views of the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge, and gather at the Hudson River Bridge for bouts of exercise-band training. The guides also helm the Fitness Tour Challenge, a rigorous all-outdoor session of circuit training on the edge of Manhattan, in which participants travel from Pier 40 to the Canal Street Pier as they fire off pushups, lunges, and squats along the way. As they eradicate calories, participants can admire skyscrapers, surging waters, and the envious glances of tour-goers who just have to walk everywhere.
