The Boston Public Health Commission announced today that as part of Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s Boston Moves for Health program, Fitness on the Plaza will expand to include free after-work Fitcorp Bootcamp classes on Wednesday evenings.


Fitcorp Bootcamp, a high-energy, outdoor interval class, emphasizes endurance and strength using a variety of drills and techniques to hit all the major muscle groups.


The free class class is engaging for people of all fitness levels, according to a spokesperson for Boston Moves for Health. Advanced registration is not required, but participants are asked to arrive 10 minutes prior to the class at City Hall Plaza at Government Center.


All bootcamp classes are held outdoors rain or shine every Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. from July 11 until August 29, with the exception of August 15.


Menino's Boston Moves for Health program aims to improve the health and wellness of the city by increasing access to free and low-cost physical activities and healthy living resources. Menino has challenged Bostonians to lose one million pounds and move ten million miles together.
