Get an Early Morning Workout
Start your day out with an early morning workout! There are several fitness groups, instructors, and organizations that host morning workouts, including running groups, yoga classes, boot camps, and more.

Events for Pups!
There are several dog events and meet-ups that occur at local parks. One great event is the “Pack Walk” hosted by Boston K9 Tutors, a great monthly event for dogs (and dog parents) to meet other dogs. It’s a great way for dogs to socialize while burning some calories while walking around some of Boston’s biggest parks.
