Yup, that’s right — there’s no denying that spring is here. If you’re in New York, you know what that means: rooftop bars, lounging in the park, and ditching the subway to walk or bike to your destination. And, of course, it means: Suns Out, Guns Out!
Among all of the activities to enjoy in the nice weather, attending an outdoor class should definitely be on your list.
Looking for an option to sweat outside? Join one of these upcoming outdoor classes!

PedalNYC: Wednesday, May 22nd, 60th and West End
Tucked away on West End Ave and 61st street, PedalNYC has one of the best studios in NYC — they have their own outdoor space! On May 22nd, Pedal will be seriously flaunting it’s space with a 90 minute full throttle class that includes 30 minutes in the SpinBin, 30 minutes in the Catalyst (TRX), and 30 minutes sweating outside. The class is $60 and starts at 7pm. It’s expected to sell out, so book your spot early here. If you can’t make the full throttle class, be on the lookout for other outdoor options from Pedal in June, including outside TRX classes.
Sacred Sounds Yoga, Wednesdays from June 5th through August 28th, Pier 46 (Charles & West Streets)
Smell the fresh air, feel the breeze and set your drishti on the Hudson River as you practice yoga with Sacred Sounds Studio at Pier 46.
