This was such a neat tour to take! I work out regularly, so the "fitness" part is what initially attracted me to it. I also try to eat healthy, but don't worry about that as much while on vacation, so I figured a workout could be a good thing to fit in to my few days in New York. Patrick... More

While in town visiting a friend, I was lamenting the fact that I never really got to know Central Park as much as I should have when I lived in New York. She had heard of Central Park Fitness Tours from a coworker and so we decided to give it a shot. What a fantastic way to spend the morning!... More

My husband and I were in NYC for a wedding a few weekends ago and decided to find a tour of Central Park. Our hotel recommended Central Park Fitness Tours, and we are so glad that they did! We like to work out (though we're not in amazing shape), so Patrick was able to design a tour and work out... More

Patrick did an excellent job educating us on Central Park's history and fun facts, while getting a good workout in at the same time. He was very outgoing, knowledgable and understood our needs very well. I would highly recommend adding this activity if you are history and exercise buff. It's an enjoyable way to see NYC.

So much fun! A great way to get a workout in while learning about central park. Patrick was very knowledgable and interesting. I've been in NYC for 4 years and had no idea about some of the spots and history!!! Thanks Patrick!

I was in New York for a long weekend with friends, two of whom had never visited the Big Apple and wanted a grand tour. A few clicks of the mouse and we came upon Central Park Fitness Tours. Why not get some exercise, enjoy fresh air and embrace our inner tourist. Patrick was a blast. Very enthusiastic! Also super... More
