Fitness to boot

Interested in getting in on the boot camp craze, but not ready to make a six-week commitment? Tim Haft, who we’ve written about before as the face behind the Greenpoint 5K training group and the city’s Punk Rope gym classes, is offering a free trial class of his Beastanetics interval training program today and tomorrow, at 6:45 a.m., 8 a.m. or 9:15 a.m. in Williamsburg’s McCarren Park soccer field. Like what you try? The full six-week series starts next week. Visit http://punkrope.myshopify

Get outside while you still can

Head to Wanderlust Yoga in the City, an urban retreat being held this Sunday (1-6 p.m.) at Hudson River Park’s Pier 63 Lawn, for gratis yoga classes led by some of the industry’s biggest stars. There will also be fitness and nutrition seminars with Health magazine editors and skin care samples from Elizabeth Arden. Registration is free, but you have the option to donate to Yoga Aid World Challenge when you sign up, which supports charities that espouse the teachings of yoga.
