Most people think of the Brooklyn Bridge as a landmark and traffic thoroughfare, but for Ariane Hundt, the 125-year-old icon had even more untapped potential.
“The Brooklyn Bridge is my favorite place in the city,” she said. “One day I was wondering how I could combine that setting with fitness, and the idea of a boot camp came to me.”
So earlier this month, Hundt, a personal trainer and nutritionist by profession, launched the “Brooklyn Bridge Boot Camp,” an hour-long workout — comprised of sprints and exercise stops — that spans the bridge.
“Expect to work really hard and expect to see results quickly,” said Hundt.
“Brooklyn Bridge Boot Camp” meets Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:30 am and Saturdays at 8 am and 9 am at the Manhattan-side entrance of the Brooklyn Bridge. Classes are $15 for first-timers, $20 for each additional class. For information, call (646) 354-0039 or visit www.brooklynbridgebootcamp.com.
