The Right Fit
Your Spring Workout Plan

Spring officially starts tomorrow. So we’re about halfway between your (no doubt still-intact) New Year’s fitness resolution and you giving out beachside tickets to the gun show. You need a workout, and these are the best in town. Naturally, at least one involves deadly force.

FOR THE CORE

German Wheel Lessons

What you require: A catlike sense of space and balance.
What you’ll receive: German wheel lessons. This thing’s basically a gymnastic hamster wheel for humans, and is prominently featured in Queen of the Night. We’re sure you’ll be just as good as that guy, too.
411:
Sundays, 7:30-9pm, $35/class, Streb, 51 N 1st St (between Wythe and Kent), Brooklyn, 718-384-6491

FOR THE WILL

Pure Power Boot Camp

What you require: The ability (if not the will) to invade Grenada by yourself.
What you’ll receive: A Marine-taught obstacle course class that’ll see you getting yelled at, climbing over walls, scaling cargo nets and generally becoming a damn fine soldier. It’s like a playground... in hell.
411:
$59/three sessions, Pure Power Boot Camp NYC, 38 E 32nd St, 3rd Fl (between Park and Madison), 212-414-1886

FOR THE LUNGS

Altitude Training

What you require: Everest-conquering endurance powers.
What you’ll receive: A workout apparatus that simulates the oxygen conditions at whatever altitude you need. Kobe Bryant and Michael Phelps have used it. And their Everest climb was legendary.
411:
Hypoxico Altitude Training Systems, 19 W 21st St, Ste 503 (between 5th and 6th), reserve at 212-972-1009

FOR THE SOUL

Jeet Kune Do Lessons

What you require: Intense cardio, extreme focus and the ability to defeat Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in a fight.
What you’ll receive: Skill in a martial art invented by Bruce Lee, from a guy trained by Bruce Lee. That’s one degree of separation. So yeah, Kareem’s a marked man.
411:
NY Martial Arts Academy, 184 N 8th St (between Driggs and Bedford), Brooklyn, 347-721-3288

FOR THE FUNNY BONE

Laughter Yoga

What you require: A positive outlook; a chuckle.
What you’ll receive: An environment where you meditate, do breathing exercises and just start laughing. You’ll be faking it at first. And then it becomes real. It’s great for the abs.
411:
Wednesdays, 6:30-8pm, $10-$20, Maha Rose Center for Healing, 97 Green St #G3 (between Manhattan and Franklin), Brooklyn, 718-757-2758
