Private Group Exercise Classes

Pictured are staff from the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at an after school outdoor bootcamp.  The Wellness Coordinator at the Horace Mann collaborated with Michael Lagomarsine, the Fitness Director at Fitrec, to set up this class once a week at the school in Allston.  Mike met the staff after school and put them through an outdoor exercise class.  This included body weight strength training and ropes, hurdles, and ladders to keep the teachers working hard.  It was a program enjoyed by all.
