Forget the gym! This weekend, work up a sweat at a Boerum Hill art gallery.

Kiwi Sweat, an aerobics program that offers fitness classes in unusual locations, is taking over Invisible Dog on Bergen Street from Nov. 17–20.

It’s part normal exercise class — with 40 spinning bikes — and part adventure.

“We’re giving people a chance to discover new parts of the city and get out of their comfort zone,” said Alicia Thomas, one of the program’s founders. “So many times we get stuck in our own routines. This makes it an event rather than a boring workout.”

If Crunch or Equinox isn’t your scene, try out these pay-per-class gatherings — in locations that are kept secret until a few weeks before the workouts begin.

Thomas and her partner, Pam Graf, are always on the lookout for inspiring spaces in Brooklyn to host their beginner and expert indoor cycling classes.

They’ve already set up in a DUMBO warehouse and at Chelsea Market in Manhattan, where they held a “midnight ride” replete with explicit, raunchy jams.

“We don’t lean on the Top 40,” Graf said. “We’re pushing the envelope.”

Kiwi Sweat at Invisible Dog [51 Bergen St. between Smith and Court streets in Boerum Hill, (646) 494-7905], Nov. 17-20, times vary. Classes are $27 (minus 25 percent if you bring a friend). For info, visit
