Last week, in the midst of trying to sift through all of the things going on in Baltimore last week, I got a text from local mom and business owner Beth Laverick.

“Next campaign is going to be supporting local gyms since #poundsforpeace is not good for my summer waistline.”

LOL. Literally. Beth has always had a great sense of humor.

We had been communicating about her #BeMoreFamilyEatOut promotion that’s aiming to help local restaurants who had tremendous loss of income due to the events in Baltimore last week.  As I wrote about last week, some restaurants are offering great promotions (up to 25% off of your bill!) and Beth has given family-friendly insider tips on each particpant. A great initiative! But she’s right — eating out all the time could definitely be detrimental to bathing suit shopping. Even if it is for a good cause.

Three local gyms had a brilliant solution.

As part of the #BeMoreFamilyEatOut promotion, if you dine at any of the participating restaurants and spend $60 or more (receipts may be combined) you will get to cash in on either One Hour of FREE Personal Training at Federal Hill Fitness in Federal Hill or MV Fitness in Mount Vernon or 3 FREE Classes at BeachFit Baltimore in Fell’s Point.
