Taking in the late summer light, many downtown workers carrying yoga mats and towels traveled to the Esplanade to break a sweat during the Healthy, Fit & Fun Bootcamp, on Thursday, August 17.
Through September 7, the Esplanade Association is sponsoring free outdoor fitness classes, including Bootcamp on the DCR Fiedler Field led by BodyBurn by Ray each Thursday at 6 p.m.
This week, the event was topped off by a summer picnic put on by sweetgreen. At the end of the workout, there were 100 free salads given out featuring their summer menu including peaches, goat cheese, watermelon and roasted peppers.
Other free healthy workouts include, Zumba at 6 p.m. on Mondays at the DCR Hatch Shell, Yoga on Fiedler Field on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. and running at 6:30 p.m. at the Marathon Sports at 671 Boylston St.
