(New York, N.Y.) – The Flatiron Nomad Partnership’s annual Flatiron Fitness Series will return this summer with free fitness classes on the South Flatiron Public Plaza, located at one of Manhattan’s most iconic intersections, in the shadow of the famed Flatiron Building. Spanning eight weeks beginning on June 22, the series will feature yoga, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), Pilates, and dance classes offered by local fitness studios.
“We welcome neighborhood residents, employees, and visitors to join us and our diverse group of fitness partners for fun and engaging classes this summer on the Plaza,” said James Mettham, President of the Flatiron NoMad Partnership. “This series is a New York City summer tradition, showcasing studios and gyms that, along with many other wellness-focused businesses, help make the greater Flatiron and NoMad district a destination for people with active lifestyles.”
With more than 50 fitness studios and gyms in Flatiron and NoMad, the area has earned a reputation as New York City’s “Fit District.”
“There is something timeless about Flatiron and NoMad, which mirrors the timeless quality of yoga,” said Rima Rabbath, founder of SOUK NYC, which opened in 2022 at 12 West 27th Street in NoMad and will be leading the first Wellness Wednesday class on June 22. “As a new yoga studio, participating in the Flatiron Fitness Series is our occasion to share something historic in the present moment. SOUK might be the new kid on the block, yet we are here to celebrate the incredible heritage this neighborhood offers. Let’s practice!”
The Flatiron Fitness Series’ signature “Wellness Wednesday” classes will take place on the South Flatiron Public Plaza, located on Broadway between 22nd and 23rd Streets, every Wednesday from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM from June 22 through August 10. Registration for the first three weeks of Wellness Wednesday classes is now open at flatironnomad.nyc/flatironfitness. Registration for the additional classes will open in subsequent weeks.
Additionally, the series will expand this year to feature pop-up fitness classes in July on NoMad Piazza, a dynamic new pedestrian space created by the Flatiron NoMad Partnership on the Broadway roadbed between 25th and 27th Streets. Details for these pop-up classes will be announced soon.
The series is being presented in partnership with the newly opened Whole Foods Market location in NoMad on 27th and Madison. “Whole Foods Market is proud to be the Title Sponsor of Flatiron Fitness, taking place during an 8-week series starting June 22nd. Our goal is to bring health and wellness to the communities we serve and partnering with the Flatiron NoMad Partnership, allows us to do so in our own neighborhood, on a larger scale,” said Lucia Albero, Senior In-Store and Local Marketing Manager at Whole Foods.
