Maybe it is because the summers in New York City can be unbearably hot so the city is trying to reward us for putting up with it.
Or maybe it is because from food to fitness, NYC prices are on the high side so they are cutting us some slack.
But whatever the reason, one of the major perks of living in the city during the summer months is the free fitness opportunities. It is the best way to get fit all summer long without paying a dime.
If you live in the area then plan your schedule around these summer fitness events for 2019 :
