As thunder rumbled loudly overhead, a waitress scrambled among the tables to collect payment from those of us who had been enjoying a lazy late afternoon lunch in Central Park. My 16 year old daughter and I dashed through the trees and onto the city streets, our large, overstuffed goodie bags bouncing against us, just as warm , heavy drops of rain began to fall. With less than two blocks to cover before reaching the subway station, the downpour began, and we were among the unprepared, laughing as we surrendered to our fate.
Months earlier, I had come across an ad in Self Magazine announcing the 20th Anniversary Self Workout in the Park. This event is held yearly in cities across the U.S. to promote health and fitness to women of all fitness levels. During this outdoor event, a wide variety of mini fitness classes are held every 20 minutes from 11 am – 3 pm, taught by a group of energetic instructors. For a $20 entry fee, each attendee is permitted to take part in an unlimited number of classes on the turf surface in front of the main stage, plus one yoga/pilates and one CrossFit class. Kids age 12 and up are welcome to attend with an adult.
