Break out your excel spreadsheets and oversized desk calendars. To fit in all the free outdoor fitness classes offered throughout Boston you’re going to need a strategy, divide and conquer style.

The Greenway Fitness series is finalized and underway and it’s looking pretty stacked. The series includes a lineup of more than 130 free classes from Zumba to lunchtime Vinyasa yoga and being so centrally located, it’s the perfect excuse to skip out of the office for some vitamin D and a solid sweat.

It’s also not a bad excuse to swing by the Trillium Beer garden or the City Winery wine garden for post-workout drinks. Could it get any better than that?
