The Street Is Offering Five Free Fitness Classes a Week
Sure, Boston’s free fitness classes get all the press, but suburban-dwellers have a lot to be excited about, too. Not only did they get Massachusetts’ first SoulCycle location (don’t worry urbanites, a Back Bay location opens this fall), but now they can boast a slew of free fitness classes this summer.
Starting Tuesday, June 2, The Street, an upscale shopping plaza situated along Chestnut Hill’s bustling Route 9, is offering five free fitness classes a week. Below, The Street’s lineup for free fitness classes in Chestnut Hill:
When: Saturday June 6 at 12 p.m. and 3 p.m.
