While I’m not sure there’s anywhere near NYC to practice a downward dog on a surfboard, I’d love to check out the Brooklyn Bootcamp as soon as I nurse a torn hamstring back to health. Benches and rails serve as convenient places to do tri-cep dips, step ups and push ups. Who needs a gym when you have the equipment you need and an amazing view from the Brooklyn Bridge?
