The Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy has announced their 2020 Greenway Fitness Series. Typically started in May, the series was postponed due to COVID-19. This summer’s program, presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield, will feature a combination of in person and virtual classes.
In person classes began on The Greenway on July 5, 2020. Participants are required to wear a face covering as well as sign-up in advance due to capacity restrictions to accommodate social distancing. Registration information can be found in the calendar listing for each class on the Greenway Conservancy website.
Instructors will no longer use equipment with shared touch surfaces, such as hand-held weights, and will instead offer more exercises that will incorporate the use of one’s own body weight. Participants should bring their own mat for select classes. Instructors will make hand sanitizer available.
