Urban Outdoor Workouts
On Rochester Municipal Park’s wide expanse of grass, figures crab-walk, perform squat-jumps on picnic tables, carry sandbags, and bunny-hop. It may sound like the most playful available version of a zombie apocalypse, but it's actually part of Urban Outdoor Workouts and its ever-changing boot camp. The workouts—designed to be fun and unintimidating—cycle through 10 major fitness factors, including agility, strength, and stamina. Boot campers zero in on those goals by performing everything from towing tractor tires behind them by a rope tied around their waists to sprinting in terror from Bigfoot through wooded trails. Instructors customize each session to individuals with beginner, intermediate, and advanced fitness routines, allowing people to find exercises suited to their proclivities.
