As we head into winter, you’ll be happy that you live in one of ARO’s no-fee rentals in NYC, where playing a few games of pickup doesn’t mean braving the elements to get to a sports facility or waiting until spring when the outside temp is conducive to playing.
Why play? According to research from a study in Sweden, playing any sport brings myriad benefits, both physically and socially. Basketball can help with balance, coordination, and cardiovascular health. And when you put a group together to play, you’re strengthening your social bonds and meaningful connections, which is something we all need after the past few years. Plus, it’s always fun to hang out with friends and burn some major calories without having to travel far.
So, grab some teammates, lace up your shoes, and let’s hit the court.
Whether you’re Steph Curry or only think of “traveling” as an escape to Paris, ARO has everything you need to prepare for and play one of the world’s most popular sports.
Just like pro basketball players, you can train in a state-of-the-art gym with all the cardio and strength training equipment you need to keep you in peak shape for game day. Don’t forget to stretch in the yoga room before (and after) you play. Then it’s time to head to the court, a trip that will take under a minute.
With gorgeous, authentic professional-style floors, this half-court is the perfect place to practice your shot or go head-to-head for a little friendly competition. Play all day or just for a few minutes to prove that you still dribble like you did in high school.
Not only is having a basketball court at your home a major perk, but so are the post-game options for unwinding. Of course, you can always head right to your residence and take in the stunning views. But why not indulge in the sauna and loosen up those sore muscles or take a gentle swim in the indoor pool as a cool-down?
No matter who wins, plan to have a post-game party in the lounges or game room. Just remember to grab some snacks and drinks to refuel.
Living at ARO is definitely a slam dunk. Contact our leasing team and check out everything our no-fee apartments in Manhattan have to offer.
