- By Caila Ball-Dionne

We get it: sometimes you just need to get outdoors. After all, the sun is beckoning, and if last winter taught us anything, it won't be here forever. Follow that warm weather-chasing urge straight to summer fitness at some of New York City's top outdoor classes! From yoga to running and boot camp to tennis, here are 12 ways to add some Vitamin D to your next sweat sesh.

Brooklyn Bridge Boot Camp

Join a fun, fearless group of likeminded fitness adventurers, and get your sweat on with a view with locations on the Brooklyn Bridge, Prospect Park and Central Park. Using your own body weight as resistance to sculpt, tone, and blast calories in the great outdoors with Brooklyn Bridge Boot Camp.

Circuit of Change

Bring your own mat and towel to Circuit of Change, a killer mind-body outdoor bootcamp. Using elements of yoga, martial arts, core fusion, gymnastics, and meditation, burn calories, tone and sculpt your entire body, while finding peace of mind through movement.
