Fearless is loving winter in the Capital Region!

As the colder weather moves into the Capital Region, we're committed to helping our members stay healthy and active all year long. 

Lace up your skates and take a spin on the ice at one of our Learn to Skate clinics at the Empire State Plaza rink. As the New Year begins, keep those healthy resolutions by participating in a HIIT class with Fitness at the Plaza, which returns in January for a winter session!  Don't forget to keep a lookout for special events with our Healthy Zone Cruiser all winter long!

If you have an interest in reserving the Healthy Zone Cruiser for your next event, please fill out our Cruiser Request Form.
