The Pru & You: Free Fitness Classes Plus a Prize [Ended]


Wanna know what sounds like a blast? Taking a fitness class at the Prudential Center — outside.

It’s been a toasty summer which means you’ll be that much more flexible for those downward dogs and warrior poses. Like hot yoga, but outside. With a breeze.

The series is called FIT on the Garden.


Every Wednesday from 6-7 p.m. until August 31st MoveWith and the Pru are hosting these FREE classes for the community. You’ll be led by a variety of talented Boston fit pros with your choice of yoga or pilates: each class is held outside on the South Garden.

So really though, what’s your excuse?

On top of free fitness (whoop, whoop) I’m giving away a ‘Prudential Center FIT prize pack’ valued at $75. It includes gift cards and/or swag …. Hint, hint: retailers may include Sweetgreen, FlyWheel, Lulu, etc.

What You’ve All Been Wondering …

It’s been about 2 months since I stopped teaching fitness on a consistent, full-time basis.

May 26th to be exact.

That date doesn’t really matter except if you’ve been following me on social media … in that case you’ve probably been thinking, “Mmm … Does she work? Like at all?” for quite some time.

My plethora of beach day pics and wedding selfies validates this question.

Well friends, I’m SUPER excited to share that starting August 15th I will be the Fitness Director for a private school in the Boston-area. While I’ve been coaching lacrosse here for 3 years, the wellness/fitness building is finally finished and I’m proud to announce I’ve signed on as a faculty member!

And now my Snap story makes sense …


So what will I be doing exactly?

Coaching young minds about staying healthy, promoting positive body image, creating strength and conditioning programs for some of the high school athletes and teams as well as teaching TRX, small group training and cycling classes to the students.

Something I learned from coaching lacrosse over the past few years was that these 14-18 year olds are like sponges. With social pressures to look/act/dress/speak/eat/think a certain way at an all time high, it’s more important than ever to show these young ladies (yes, it’s an all-girls school) the power of health and treating your body with respect.

I graduated from a similar private high school in 2005 … except 11 years ago some major components were missing: Facebook was only for college students (remember that pesky .edu requirement?), selfies did not exist and Snapchat, Instagram, retweets, favorites, likes and emojis were not a thing.

Don’t get me wrong, I love social media. But I do believe it’s imprinted some unhealthy habits on the younger generation.

Bottom line: When a 15-year old freshman tells me she’s on a 3-day juice cleanse and we have 3 games and 2 practices that week — well — I know I have a job to do.

And let me tell you, I can’t wait to get started.
