November Project – NYC is proud to bring free fitness and plenty of sweaty hugs to the 5 boros. We work out Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week and you can find our complete workout calendar here. Our Tribe is lead by these dedicated humans who, between the three of them, have extensive experience in a diverse range of specialties from ultramarathons to competitive eating contests. Please meet: 

Mary Arnold:

A marketing pro by day and ultrarunner by nights, very early mornings and weekends, Mary manages the Tribe’s social strategy, recovery deck and loves coming up with new ways to torment the Tribe during extra spice. She has been known to Mama Bear the hell out of her Tribe and particularly enjoys Rob’s #FunFactFriday and the fact that 90% of Kevin’s jokes go right over Rob’s head

Rob McCombs:

Did you touch someone’s nose on your first say at NP? Have you been asked to dance awkwardly on your birthday? That’s definitely Rob’s doing. He is also a speedster, resident goof ball, and will cheer you on until he can’t talk anymore.  He has been spotted singing and dancing at each workout and one of his favorite activities is making Mary laugh so hard she forgets what she was doing or walks into something.

 

Kevin Rankin: 

Kevin is the newest co-leader in NYC and sports an impressive resume that includes Spartan Racing, the Krispy Kreme Challenge and being named the Sexiest Man on UVA’s campus in 2013. He’s also a logistics and operational powerhouse who keeps the Tribe on track and he still finds time to volunteer with the UVA community and various charities in the NYC area. In his spare time, Kev enjoys picking up heavy objects and putting them down elsewhere and adventuring through the National Parks.

You can find them here:

      Sounds like there needs to be a NP “Long Island” or “NYEast” or “Southeast NYC.” I bet there are a lot of people for whom that would work. I’d be there whenever I’m home visiting.

      Hi,

      Sorry it has taken a while to get back to you, we have just gone through a leadership change, and are still everything out. We are making an effort to get more uptown locations into the mix. We are having at least 1 Friday location uptown per month (Uptown being above the park, in the Bronx, or in Queens). Keep an eye on us on social media to see workout locations, a calendar is dropping soon that will have all locations for the month. Hope this helps, again, sorry for the delay.

      Thanks,
      Rob

    Who do I get in touch with about getting this started in Brooklyn or south Manhattan? Uptown seems to be inconvenient for a lot of people that early. Can one of the “coaches” email me please?

      Hi Alex,

      Sorry for the delay. Check out Kings County Fit Club (if you haven’t already), they are an NP pledge. We also have Monday workouts on the Williamsburg Bridge On Mondays, and venture downtown often on Fridays. Keep an eye on Social Media for the loactions, and we are dropping a calendar soon that will give everyone the locations for the month.

    Could you please refrain from jumping up and down on the park benches. Besides the annoyance of having the bench you’re sitting on continually jarred, placing your dirty feet on benches people sit on is rather rude. Furthermore I don’t think the benches were designed with the intention of people constantly jumping up and down on them, I would hate for to see one break and possibly injure someone. Maybe if you plan on having such large group from fitness classes you should look at investing in your own space with proper workout equipment instead of relying on the public park system. Thank you

    Hello NP NYC, my wife and I are from Edmonton will be visiting your tribe on Dec 13th and hopefully the Dec 15th workout depending on how our flights work out. I was wondering if you can do a special tagging session for us at the 13th workout?

    Hi there!! Was reading the comments on this page and noticed there’s some talk of a Hudson valley NP. There’s a big running community in lower Hudson, Yonkers, New Rochelle, etc. Any chance of starting a tribe around westchester?

      Bari,

      Always a chance of starting a tribe. Just need the people to take the step forward and do it. On another page “How to….?” it goes into it. There is a pledging process before you are brought on as a new tribe.

      Hi David, so very few people have cars making it tricky, BUT you can the B or D train (Manhattan Bound) from the Dekalb station you can go to either 110 (B) or 125 (D) and run down (less than a mile). Let us know if you have any other questions.
