Trade in your gym membership for a free workout in Manhattan's shared backyard, thanks to the Central Park Conservancy. Trainers Rich Fortunat and Whitney Jacobs helped design this outdoor circuit that utilizes park facilities—such as benches, stairs, hills and lawns—in cardio and strength-building routines. Conservancy members have first dibs on trainer-led workouts, which take place on Tuesdays (6:30–7:30pm, Great Lawn at 81st St) and Thursdays (6:30–7:30pm, Great Hill at 106th St) over spring (through June 20) and summer (through Aug 15). The classes are capped at 20 people, but you can download a PDF of the exercises and view instructional videos at centralparknyc.org/circuit.
