SmA is located just steps from NYC's famous "Charging Bull" statue and is basically across the street from the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island ferries. Also just around the corner from Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. So you can check out some other NYC sight seeing hot spots on your way.

If you seem unmotivated remember watching sports, reading about sports and now visiting a museum about sports is a great way to get inspired to get going on your exercise adventure!
