Beach Bootcamp at Willard Beach is a perfect blend of sweat and sand. Amy Currie, founder of Fit Justice in Westbrook, runs the bootcamps every Saturday in June and July.
The Spin + Barre + Wine class happens once a month (on the second Friday of the month) at 5:30 p.m. Instructor Shannon Ireland leads a 25-minute spin class followed by a 25-minute Barre class. Afterward, everyone's invited to stick around for wine, and perhaps some cheese, crackers, and fresh fruit, too.
Enjoy all-levels yoga in the grass with stupendous views of the Portland skyline and Casco Bay during Yoga at Bug Light Park with Kelly Rich Yoga.
At Riverview Martial Arts in South Portland, you can do a whole lot of socially appropriate kicking and punching during a fitness kickboxing class. You'll also do pushups and ab work and squats and lunges, which means the sweat will be abundant and you're certain to be spent by the end of the 55-minute class.
The brewery yoga started just a couple weeks ago, and there are classes at 5:30 p.m. on Fridays and 9 a.m. Sundays (which happens to lead right into brunch time!).
There were turkeys everywhere at the inaugural Savage Family Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning, which started at Bug Light Park in South Portland.
Body rolling stretches out those muscles and tendons that get so darn tight, allowing for improved range of motion, injury prevention, and much-needed tension release (which means less ache in the hip for me).
There are squats and lunges and plyometrics and the rhythmic banging of drumsticks - on your mat, on the floor and overhead.
