Workout at a Park

The park is an underrated place to get a workout in, but it can hold some hidden gems that help you get the maximum effectiveness out of your workout. Try getting on the monkey bars and testing your strength at Owl’s Head Park. You can do pull-ups or, step-ups, box jumps, and other exercises using the equipment. For a quiet green space for yoga, visit Greenwood Cemetery. And, of course, there’s always a run with your dog in Cooper Park.

Find a Personal Trainer

If you’re having trouble getting into an exercise groove on your own, consider enlisting the help of a personal trainer. Brooklyn residents can look for personal trainers using a directory that can connect you with someone to help you reach your exercise goals. A trainer will be able to push you further than you thought you could go, making your workouts more effective and your results visible much sooner.

One of the best workouts is getting in the water and going for a long swim. Swimming builds muscle strength and gives your entire body a workout. It also improves lung function and lets you get a good workout in without sweating. If weight loss if your goal, then swimming is great because it burns a ton of calories.

Working out in the city presents some challenges, but you can get through them and find a routine that works for you.
