Are you tired of being tied to a fitness class schedule? Tired of spending all that money too? Here’s a free fitness guide for you to download and print, and free classes to help you learn how to free yourself of other people’s schedules.

The Good News:  The Friends of Morningside Park and I have teamed up to create an innovative way to help you celebrate Independence Day every day.

Learn how to use Morningside Park’s Green Gym map and guide along with the program of 12 instructional banners installed in the park–and make it your own. I show you how to put together jogging or brisk walking and stair climbing with a variety of exercises using park features such as benches and lamp posts to work every muscle group and provide bursts of cardio, plus strength training and healthful stretching. The workout can be modified to suit any/all levels of fitness, strength and flexibility. Sponsored by the Partnership for a Healthier New York. Get your free Morningside Green Gym Fitness Map & Guide at the class, or download it here:

The class meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 7:00 am- 7:45am until July 22nd… then you’re on your own. Meeting Place:  Recreation Center at West 123rd St. and Morningside.

Super Good News:  Email me at for a free pdf of the 12 exercises — infinitely adaptable to any park!  Or, email if you’d like information about ordering my book, “101 Things to Do on a Park Bench”– that’s right: 101 stretches and strengtheners that need no equipment other than a park bench and an open  mind.

Dips on a bench… how many can you do?

  1. Hi Nancy!

    I would like to commit and take advantage of this wonderful offer. It’s also a wonderful way to connect with you physical intellect and energy to infuse motivation for a full recuperation.

    We begin Monday, July 4th?
