It was actually Personal Touch in the Park, a small group Jazzercise fitness class led by Fara. (Who runs rings around all of us in spite of being pregnant.)

I highly recommend it.

It's also very low maintenance, meaning you don't have to have a lot of bells and whistles to get a good work out. Fara brought tubes from the studio but most of the routine simply made us of our body weight and the park's "equipment." You can easily turn the outdoors into a gym. Here's a few ideas.
- At PT in the Park, we did squats and step-ups on a picnic table.
- Run or walk stairs. I found this great stair workout on the Fit Sugar website with a variety of options, such as climbing stairs with high knees or going up and down sideways.
- Do triceps dips and push-ups on a park bench.
- Use the monkey bars at the playground for pull-ups or lift your knees to target the abs.
