New York City Urban Training Camp

5 May - 10 May 2017 in New York City

Join Steve Maxwell in New York City for the Urban Training Camp.

In May, Steve will convene on the island of Manhattan for an innovative spring training camp.


Meet up with Steve on Manhattan's Upper West Side and benefit from his approach to healthy living in the city and unique outdoor conditioning strategies. Directly experience how Steve reconnoiters the urban landscape for pull-up and workout opportunities and keeps up his training discipline amid the distractions.

Training Activities

Training activities will be held at various locations around Central Park, Riverside Drive, various public playgrounds, and friendly host facilities. Anticipate running, pulling, pushing, lifting, pressing, and a very special kettlebell session.

Additional activities: walking-breathing drills, joint mobility, therapeutic massage techniques, and visualization as an active recovery.


To allow for local participation, accommodations are not included in the registration fee. Steve recommends a very economical hotel called Riverside Tower Hotel, and will be staying there himself. At 80th St. and Riverside Drive, this hotel is converted from former dorm rooms of Columbia University and is a great value on the UWS. It is private, cozy, and clean, with mini-fridge and microwave in each room.

The typical single room is about US$135/night, and a terrific "suite" option is $160 - 169/night. The suites are two dorm-size bedrooms sharing a bathroom in the middle. These suite rooms will accommodate up to 4 people, if you are looking for a real budget stay with 1-3 friends.

This camp is priced invitingly at $650 reflecting the low overhead and Steve's natural goodwill.

Delicious Morning coffee, smoothie, or comparable from Juice Press are included with registration fee.

Feel safe, healthy, and fit-for-anything in the city with Steve -- you can expect to feel inspired, as well as improve your health, fitness, and well-being over five springtime days in New York, New York -- you can't afford to miss it.
