10 NYC Training Facilities To Help Inspire Your Inner Olympian

We've been feeling super sporty lately thanks to the swanky sneaks being shelled out by our favorite boutiques, mesh tanks that are oh-so-perfect for layering and, oh, right, the 2012 London Olympic Games!
To celebrate the rapidly approaching games, we looked into ways to try out some of the coolest and craziest Olympic events for ourselves. Not surprisingly, our humble city has facilities that offer lessons in almost every sport in the games! From synchronized swimming to trampolining, our list of wacky sports is our double-dog-dare to you. Start training for the 2016 games now, and if you manage to make it to Rio, be sure to give us a shout-out during your press conferences.
