Few things go hand-in-hand with summer quite like a roof deck. On an 80-degree day, rooftop bars, rooftop restaurants, rooftop pools, and even your friend’s rickety apartment roof deck suddenly become prime real estate.

Perhaps that’s why so many fitness classes have taken to the sky this summer, giving you the chance to work out far above the city streets. Here are six rooftop fitness series happening around town:

1. Rooftop Cycling at the Kensington
