Central Park is New York City’s backyard and a top attraction for tourists and locals, but what many don’t realize is that it’s also the city’s greatest fitness training ground.
Central Park Fitness Tours, a new company offering customized fitness training packages, highlights some of the most recognizable areas of Central Park and introduces hidden gems unknown even to most locals. Whether in town on vacation or business, all tours are designed to give individuals and groups an energetic and adventurous workout experience.
Patrick Populorum, founder of Central Park Fitness Tours, gives fun and dynamic tours that tap into the storied history that lies within the park , along with a workout to fit all needs and levels. “I love being able to combine my fitness background with my passion of Central Park’s history to give people a fun, exciting New York experience.”
All tours are customized to fit the individual or group’s fitness goals. Examples of some of the tours include:
•North Woods Tour – This cross-fit training tour spanning 96th to 110th Streets offers a rugged and scenic tour of the park’s north end. The North Woods were designed to replicate the forests of the Adirondack Mountains.
•Center of the City Tour – Some of Central Park’s most iconic landmarks include the Bethesda Fountain (the center of Manhattan), the Mall, the Band Shell and Sheep’s Meadow. Enjoy a rigorous resistance tour and cross the same famous finish line as the runners of the New York City Marathon.
•The Ramble Tour – Immersed in woods, this rugged terrain offers the most challenging workout for cross-country running along the trails, and fun cross-fit training at Summit Rock.
Tours are led by Populorum, a veteran personal fitness trainer with more than 15 years experience working in prestigious gyms and with high-profile clients in Los Angeles and New York. Populorum combines his backgrounds in theatre, stand-up comedy and fitness to provide a fun, first-class training session in America’s greatest urban playground.
