6 Outdoor Fitness Classes to Get You Out of the House
Step away from the fridge and step outside for a workout. The fresh air will do you good.
The gym typically offers outdoor classes from March to early June to avoid the extreme heat. This summer is different, however.
For about a month, F45 has provided 45-minute-long classes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on the Pentagon Row Plaza. As of June 17, the class can accommodate up to 15 people. Participants must wear a mask before and after class, but not during, says Lynn Tallant, chief operating officer for the gym.
All exercises in the HIIT class are bodyweight. Each move is typically 30 seconds of work, 15 seconds of recovery. “The one thing about our workouts is they never stay the same; they change every day,” Tallant says.
Participants need a mat or long towel, plus a towel to mop sweat from their faces and a water bottle. Classes cost $30 each or $129 to $169 per month for memberships.
