Flatiron BID’s Fitness Series Returns: In-Person Classes Resume On The Flatiron Plazas & Hotel Rooftops – Broadway World

Posted: June 6, 2021 at 1:46 am


Following last year's pandemic pause, the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership's popular Flatiron Fitness Series will return this summer with fitness classes on the Flatiron Public Plazas next to the famed Flatiron Building and, for the first time ever, on rooftop terraces at nearby hotels.

Spanning eight weeks beginning on June 15, the series will feature yoga, high intensity interval training (HIIT), Pilates, barre, and dance classes in collaboration with local fitness studios.

"People are eager to get back out and participate in group activities again, and we are thrilled to provide an opportunity to do just that, in some truly iconic New York settings, through our Flatiron Fitness Series," said James Mettham, Executive Director of the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership. "We're grateful to the resilient and diverse group of participating Flatiron and NoMad fitness studios, as well as the hotels that are hosting some of our classes for the first time."

The series' signature "Wellness Wednesday" evening classes will take place on the Flatiron Public Plazas, located at the intersection of 23rd Street, Broadway and Fifth Avenue, every Wednesday from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM from June 16 through August 4.

New to the series in 2021, additional morning classes will be hosted on rooftop terraces at two nearby hotels - MADE Hotel and Mondrian Park Avenue - every Tuesday from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM from June 15 through August 3, giving participants more opportunities to take in the skyline and enjoy the open air as they get active with district studios and gyms.

Registration launches on June 3 at noon at https://www.flatirondistrict.nyc/flatironfitness.

In an effort to support Flatiron's fitness studios and gyms as they recover from the impacts of the COVID pandemic, the Flatiron Fitness Series classes will collect donations this year. For classes hosted in the Flatiron Public Plazas, donations are not required to participate, but they are very much appreciated. For premium rooftop classes hosted at hotel terraces, a donation of $10 per person is required due to limited class size. One hundred percent of funds from plaza donations and hotel terrace tickets will be directed to fitness studio partners.

Before the pandemic, there were more than 50 gyms and studios in Flatiron and NoMad, earning the area a reputation as New York City's "Fit-District." During last year's prolonged pause on in-person indoor fitness and subsequent capacity restrictions, many fitness businesses in the district and throughout the city closed. Currently 27 gyms and studios are open in Flatiron and NoMad.

A complete schedule for the 2021 Flatiron Fitness Series follows:
