Free Fitness Classes in Boston this Summer!

Summer is almost here and you know what that means- Boston is full of fun free fitness. Here are a few you will not want to miss...
Jennifer Phelan Pilates
Pilates superstar, Jenn Phelan, is back from maternity leave and kicking spring off with her "Bikini & Bellini" series in partnership with Sterling's in Faneuil Hall. The class is a bootcamp-style Pilates workout and runs EVERY Saturday from 9:30 to 10:15am in May and June, every other Saturday in July and August, and then every Saturday in September. Since it's outside, be sure to check out Jenn's Facebook page for any weather-related cancellations.

Ladies who love to run? New Balance just started a series called Girls Night Out from their Boylston Street location (read all about it on Healthy Chicks' blog). The evening starts with a fun run and winds down with stretching, live music, guest speakers by local fitness experts, cocktails and apps. I went to the first one on May 15th and had a blast!
Move Sweat Love with Ali
Another bootcamp to try is Ali Baldassare's cardio Pilates bootcamp on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in the North End. The series will take place on Mondays throughout the summer starting with June 9th and 23rd from 6:30 to 7:15pm.
Lena Andrade of the Z Spot
Good news for Zumba fans- the Z Spot will be back (but this time in Christopher Columbus Park) every Monday starting June 2nd! Their crew is so much fun to watch and even more fun to dance with. Follow their fan page for more details.

Leventhal Park in Post Office Square will be offering 8 free weekly classes for the second summer in a row weekday mornings as well as after work from June through September. Check their calendar and Facebook page for a full schedule and updates.

And finally - the 2nd Annual NEWHBA Fest! The North End Waterfront Health & Beauty Alliance will be hosting an all day affair on June 21st including live music, health and beauty vendors, and free fitness classes scheduled throughout the day. I'll be there taking photos so come say hi!

Need more free fitness? Check out this calendar on the Little Miss Runshine blog to stay updated all summer. Also, sign up for the Sweetgreen passport offering free classes all over the city every month (not just in the summer!). Have an event to share? Please leave the info in the comments below, I'd love to learn about it!

The use of Lacey S Laila Electrical Muscle Stimulation possesses no medical threat to the individuals using the belt. This is because it is just an artificially mimicry of brain stimulation in muscle contraction. EMS has also been used for years in bed ridden individuals to prevent muscle atrophy and wasting.
