Harbor Fitness Debuts Grid Iron Fitness Class for
Fantasy Football Wives & Fans Alike
"Brooklyn's Gym's Four Locations Make Residents "Brooklyn Tough"

(Brooklyn, NY) – Football season is here, and it’s time to get fantasy teams, and ourselves, in top grid-iron shape. Harbor Fitness, known as “Brooklyn’s Gym” with four locations in the borough, is helping members who are football fans, or non-fans with nothing to do on Sundays, get in shape that by adding a series of “Brooklyn Tough” Grid Iron Circuit classes into their fall schedule.

Lead by certified group fitness instructor and professional women’s football player Jay Dantzler, Grid Iron classes offer a total body workout designed to encourage a hearty spirit of competition. Members taking the class will challenge themselves to complete actual American Football drills used by professional players while sweating to football stadium songs and using pigskins as stability and agility props.

The secret weapon, Jay says, is adding some ultra-tough moves that her team has to do when they lose a game or miss a play. “My arms are cut because I can’t catch. I play defense, so I bat down the balls, but if I drop one that could have been an interception, I have to do extra burpees and push-ups in practice.”

"The experience: I was a little skeptical of a class that involved shouting things-while working out, no less: This series of aerobics, yoga, martial arts and dance moves correspond with spoken affirmations ('Believe! Receive!'). But I dropped all inhibition about 20 minutes in, and found myself confidently punching the air, chanting, 'I be-lieve I will suc-ceed!' while dripping in sweat. Multitaskers of New York, rejoice, because this class is not only exhilarating cardio, it also serves as therapy. Turns out, yelling 'Courage! Confidence!' while doing martial arts actually makes you feel (dare I say it?) empowered. Sound a little cheesy? Maybe it is. But I walked out a sweaty mess, so if nothing else, it's a high-energy workout."
