Community Building Week – August 10th-16th


NP founders set out to:

  • Get strong and fast through tough workouts
  • Build and strengthen a community around fitness
  • Keep moving

Every day in Boston, there are hundreds, nay, gazillions, of people getting stronger in group workouts. In the summer, the agenda of free group workouts stretches across every day, time, and location you can think of. There are free yoga sessions, introductory cross-fit classes, weight-workouts, track workouts, and a plethora of running groups. This isn’t an excuse to skip NP, it’s an opportunity to add some more people and movement in between and around our M/W/F.

Dedicate one week to showing respect and support to these other free-fitness groups, bringing with us our strong NP culture of commitment, strength, and hugs. Let’s strengthen our Boston community by exploring a new group and making new friends.


Wear your #GrassrootsGear and #selfie with a new friend.  Try something new. Explore. Challenge yourself and push your comfort zone. Run with your mom. Share NP love, explore the other cool free fitness opportunities, and help include other people there in the NP opportunity.

Here are a few starter suggestions that are organized by core NP members:
