Here is what they said about JERSEY CITY
The views of Lower Manhattan from Liberty State Park’s four-mile running loop are spectacular. But Jersey City (“JC” to locals) also boasts some kick-ass indoor options. At last count: 31 gyms, 14 Pilates studios, 14 martial-arts studios, four boxing gyms, and 10 dance studios—all within 21 square miles. Inside, group classes rule; these extra-effective ones offer free trial sessions.

Bootcamp meets six times a week—and has helped many local women drop many dress sizes (jcfbootcamp.com).
