Fit Tours NYC is a great example of a company that offers custom outdoor activities for groups. Born and bred in Manhattan, they set the majority of their workouts immersed within the scenic backdrops of Central Park and focus mainly on customizing group activities. They have taken the popular concept of outdoor fitness (offering Power Hour Boot Camp, Guided Runs and yoga options) and added to it by incorporating a scenic and historical tour! Each of their fitness instructors are also certified NY tour guides who recite the rich and fascinating stories of New York’s Central Park as they lead invigorating workouts. Their mantra is “If the views don’t take your breath away the workout certainly will!” and they offer the ultimate in team building as well as individual and group workouts. Now you can offer your attendees an innovative and extreme team building option as they navigate through an obstacle course, participate in a mini Olympics or test true endurance with a boot camp competition.
