There are but only a few months of summer in New England, so you should log as many hours outside as you can before it’s gone, and that includes workouts. For some fun outdoor exercise classes for beginners and fitness fanatics alike, check out The Freedom Trail of Fitness starting in July. Not only can you work up a sweat and try some different class styles, each event will also feature bites and drinks from some great restaurants, plus you get a good excuse to explore all different corners of the city.
Kick things off with Hip Hop Pop-Up with Jessie Alegria in the green space at Assembly Row in Somerville at 10:00 am Sunday, July 17th for a 90-minute dance workout experience followed by brunch at Salt + Stone. Then the workouts pop up in different spots every two weeks, including yoga, beer and pizza at Castle Island Brewing in South Boston, HIIT style strength training and beer (or proprietary Maltini cocktails) at Distraction Brewing Company in Roslindale, and finally an Everybody Fights class, which is a combination of cardio, strength and boxing, followed by an outdoor cocktail party with Burtons Grill & Bar at MarketStreet in Lynnfield.
Tickets to each individual pop-up are sold separately (you must visit each link even if you want to attend all four classes) and tickets range from $20 to $35. Check out the full schedule with prices and ticket links below, and start shopping for four sporty but sassy athleisure outfits that can handle both workouts and cocktail parties.
