New Fitness Trend: Lose Weight By Playing Ping-Pong

Truth: We've done the tips from our favorite trainers, and dudes, we're getting t-o-n-e-d! But, sometimes (or more than sometimes) working out is so incredibly boring—there's only so many squats or lunges or planks you can do. So, we're always game for another way to keep off the pounds, which is why we just made plans Thursday night. Enter Blink Pong , presented by Table Tennis Nation, a ping pong tournament July 21 at Blink Fitness' NoHo location. Open to the public, the tournament, or "brawl," is a swe-et way to make some new friends, get a little competitive, and, of course, work up a sweat. "An hour of ping pong can burn 400 calories, so this is a great chance to supplement your workout in a fun, different way," says Cooper Fallek of Table Tennis Nation. We're balls to the, err, net in!
Thursday, July 21, 6 p.m to 9 p.m., Blink NoHo, 16 East 4th Street (at Broadway); 212-228-7000.
