Feeling isolated, bored with the gym, or just unmotivated to exercise? Then get with the crowd.
Specifically, the “flash mob fitness” crowd—gangs of as many as 100-plus athletes of every level, from pro jocks to newbies, who go on free early-morning city runs and do stimulating drills like bear crawls and burpees in the park. And all you need to do is show up and join in.
Called the November Project, the movement was started in Boston by two former college rowers to keep fitness buffs going during dreary New England winters. So far it’s spread to 19 cities, including San Diego, Chicago, NYC, and Denver. For locations, go to novemberproject.com.
Or, if it’s not yet in your city, start your very own mob. (The site tells you how.)
