Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore’s FREE wellness series kicks off on Monday, May 16th … and this year they are offering family-friendly classes!

“Our ninth season is shaping up to be our biggest season yet for Waterfront Wellness,” said Laurie Schwartz, president of Waterfront Partnership. “We’re thrilled that we’re able to add Rash Field Park as a new location and can’t wait to have our waterfront – from Federal Hill to Harbor Point – filled with folks socializing and exercising together every day of the week.”

If FREE fitness classes don’t motivate you to head to the harbor for some healthy fun, maybe the incentives will? Those who attend 10-15 classes will receive Waterfront Partnership Swag. Attending 16-30 classes? You’ll receive a $50 gift card to a local gym, health, or wellness store. Those who attend 30 or more classes will be entered into a drawing for an Original Peloton® Bike with 3-month subscription!

While this series has traditional offered fitness experiences for “grown-ups only,” Waterfront Partnership has added family-friendly classes this year that are suitable for ages 8 and older:
