On March 19 the Junior League of Boston kicked off spring with an amazing health and wellness event that featured fitness classes, massages, a wellness seminar and more.

Attendees who made JL Boston headquarters a stop on their Saturday morning had the opportunity to choose from 5 booty blasting, heart pumping classes including:

  • Barre with Endurance Pilates & Yoga
  • HIIT with Cassie B. from BFX Studios
  • Yoga with Core Power Yoga
  • Yoga with Erin Madore Wilcox
  • Pilates by JLB’s own Kathleen Riley, an instructor at The Studios @ Benefitn

Fit & Fab Lab guests also benefited from massages and injury screenings by Joint Ventures Physical Therapy and a wellness seminar about women’s empowerment through physical and emotional help, with Crossroads of Fitness coach Garrett Wood.

FFL2The Junior League of Boston raised about $1,300 during this year’s Fit and Fab Lab, and hopes to turn this successful fitness and wellness event into an annual Junior League of Boston signature event! All proceeds from the event go directly back into the community to support the health and wellness of women and girls in the Boston area.
