    This place is a total scene. It is a great workout and I like the views. It's better now that they banned the personal trainers. There are hot people everywhere. Good eye candy and motivation

    Go down concrete steps, jog across to the wooden steps. Semi jog wooden steps then walk across to the concrete steps. This equates to a lil over 2 miles and great for your glutes!!

    Great place to get some outdoor exercise and people watch. But note that gets routinely crowded on weekends and weekday evenings.

    Kick ass, no mercy stairs. But, often overcrowded. And very often with the scantily clad who want to be seen. I use the adjacent streets to make a loop. 7th street has a nice hill to run.

    Do as many sets as you can, until your legs feel like they're on fire and you can't take another step. Then do 2 more sets.

    I'm sure you're very important but your cell phone conversation can wait until you're off the stairs.

    Try the loop approach going up the concrete stairs and down the wooden ones. It’s free, it’s outdoors and it will kick you into shape. Track the calories you burned with MyPlate via "More Info." Read more
