13 Gyms Offering Outdoor Workouts in Jersey City

Written by:

The halfway point in the summer has come and the weather has certainly heated up. While just walking outside may feel like a full workout {cue body sweat and mask sweat — but safety first!}, there are plenty of Hudson County residents still looking to fit a“real” exercise class back into their schedules. Earlier this summer, NJ Governor Phil Murphy shared “the difficulty of social distancing in certain indoor locations.” Since then, under his executive orders, gyms and trainers were granted permission to host outdoor, socially-distant exercise classes. 

That being said, Jersey City fitness locales jumped to making the most out of this and have re-opened a number of studios for outdoor workouts {that are socially distant, of course}. All classes are held by individual gyms/studios and will operate similar to classes pre-COVID-19 in terms of registering and cost. The times of classes, registration, memberships, and fees are determined by each organization offering the service. But for now, on to the fun part — read on for our full list of gyms offering outdoor classes in Jersey City.
