Be Fit

Buddy Up! We recommend finding a friend or family member to partner with to become fit and remain fit. Having another person to walk with or bike with often makes all the difference. Give it a try and call someone today to join you to bike to Boston GreenFest!

Yoga: Yoga is a great way to stay in shape while also relaxing the mind. Boston GreenFest 2013 will have demonstrations on yoga for kids and adults.

Martial Arts: There are many places to learn martial arts around Boston and this is a great way to stay fit as well as develop good self-defense mechanisms. Boston GreenFest featured Kung-Fu demos by Yang’s Martial Arts Association last year. This year there will be a demonstration of Capoeira by Grupo Capoeira Brasil.

Ride a bike: If you bike it to Boston GreenFest, there will be Valet Bike Parking available sponsored by MassBikes.

Boston Bikes and Hubway: Part of Mayor Menino's vision for a vibrant and healthy city, this city department seeks to make Boston a world-class bicycling city by creating safe and inviting conditions for all residents and visitors. Visit for more information.

Parks & Recreation: You don't have to waste gas to drive to a park in order to get the most out of the outdoors. The Parks & Recreation Department provides residents and visitors with clean, green, safe, and accessible open space in more than 2,200 acres of park land throughout the city. Many parks have free circuits designed to act as an outdoor gym; there's walking paths and bike lanes and hiking trails and more! Visit for more information.
