It's Monday, do people work out on Mondays? Take a mental rest day, do some meditating, envision what a successful week will look like, and watch it unfold before you.

Tuesday: Healthy, Hassle Free Meal Planning

Tuesday, August 16th from 6:30-7pm at Pierce's Park - Inner Harbor, Pier 5

"With Meal Planning you know what your meals will look like and what you need to buy."

What's exercise without eating right? Meal planning makes grocery shopping more efficient, reduces impulsive decisions for unhealthy choices, and ensures good nutrition and healthy eating habits during the week. Join Alexandra Miller, RDN, LDN to learn her 3-step approach to healthy, hassle-free meal planning on Tuesday, August 16th from 6:30-7pm at Pierce's Park. Brought to you by our friends at Waterfront Partnership. Email megan@waterfrontpartnership.org to RSVP.

Wednesday: November Project

Wednesday, August 17th from 6:30-7:30am at Rash Field in Federal Hill

November Project is a self-described "FREE fitness movement that was born in Boston as a way to stay in shape during cold New England months."

Although it was born in Boston (we won't mention that), the Baltimore chapter is an amazing community-building organization where friendships, and even marriages are made. It recently made it to the cover of Baltimore Magazine's "Best of Baltimore 2016," and for good reason. The workout happens outside in the same place, rain or shine, all year long (yes, even in January). It's worth attending if only for the quirky personalities you meet while working out. Get moving early, embrace the weirdness that is "hips-in hugs" and JUST SHOW UP.

Thursday: Get Grooving with Free Zumba

Thursday, August 18th from 6:30-7:30pm at the Cahill Rec Center

Don't you love working out when it doesn't feel like working out? Well, that's Zumba.  Join the community, get in the rhythm. You'll be glad you did.

Friday: Unwind your week with Free Yoga

Thursday, August 19th from 6:30-7:30pm at the Bentalou Rec Center

The Bentalou Rec Center, sponsored by Healthy West Baltimore is a free, weekly, community Vinyasa yoga flow. Open to the public at no charge, the participants are an eclectic blend of all that makes Baltimore great.
