Falling behind on your fitness resolutions for 2018? (Same.) Don’t worry, we’re only a month into the new year and there’s still plenty of time to get back to NYC's best gyms. In fact, the return of Union Square Sweat Fest is making it even easier, especially for folks who can’t afford pricey workout classes and membership fees.

The fourth annual, week-long fitness event allows New Yorkers to try classes, gyms and partake in other health-conscious events in the Union Square. It begins February 8 and goes through February 13.

More than 20 gyms and retailers are participating, and while some of the classes and offerings cost money, many of them are free. Naturally, we’re more interested in the latter, which is why we’ve highlighted 10 of the best free fitness classes you can during this special, sweat-inducing event.

Now go and indulge in those Restaurant Week deals—you’ll work off the calories later.
