BOSTON (CBS) – To get into shape for the summer, you don’t have to choose between groceries or the gym, when there are free fitness classes available.

Here are a few options in this week’s Summer of Savings:


The city of Boston just kicked off its summer fitness series. The program brings 26 free classes per week to 14 different neighborhoods.

There’s something for everyone from Zumba and yoga to high intensity interval training classes run for all age groups, including two weekday play inspired fitness classes for kids 12 and under.

On weekends, there’s a family yoga class.
