I jumped into the air, placing my hands onto the small concrete wall and pushing my legs in between my arms, letting go once my feet hit the floor again. Getting up quickly, I hopped onto a small cylinder next to the opposite side of the wall and cleared it in one large bound. Nice, but I wasn’t finished yet.
In 2009, fitness instructor and public health researcher, Nancy Bruning, MPH, designed a fitness guide with the New York Parks and Recreation Department, the Fort Tryon Park Trust, Partnerships for Parks, and Scott Stringer's Go Green campaign. The guide, titled "Let's Get Moving: a Fitness Guide to Fort Tryon Park," shows exercises that people can do in their local parks. Although the map and guide was created for Fort Tryon Park in Northern Manhattan, the images and exercises can be used in any park.

I visited the Harlem YMCA and spoke with Personal Trainer Donte Jones about what foods were good for helping the body as well as foods to avoid. Donte said stick with the fruits and vegatables, stay away from sweets and fatty foods, fast foods, cakes, pies and donuts. Also drink plenty of water. We then proceeded to go around the gym and work on several workout machines.
