Starting June 8, the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) is kicking off a summer-long series of health and wellness programs as a part of their “Healthy Days of Summer in Georgetown” promotion. There are free fitness classes hosted in neighborhoods across Washington, but this summer campaign will expand beyond sweat sessions by partnering with Georgetown restaurants and businesses.

In addition to the free yoga (Tuesdays, 7 PM) and running club (Wednesdays, 6:30 PM) at Lululemon, the Mountains Athletic Training (Thursdays, 6:30 PM) in Rose Park hosted by The North Face, running club (Thursdays at 6:34 PM and Saturdays at 8:04 PM) and Nike Training Club (Mondays, 8:04 PM) at Nike, City Sports will also host a running club (Sundays, 9 AM), the Key Bridge Boathouse while offer free sunrise community paddles (Fridays, 7 AM) and sunrise yoga (Saturdays, 7 AM, $10), and Revolution Cycles will lead a 30-mile bike ride from the Exxon on Canal Road to Potomac and back (Sundays, 8:30 AM).

In addition to these boutique-hosted classes, the Georgetown BID is bringing Sunset Fitness to the park: a free, one-hour fitness class led by Georgetown fitness studios. The classes begin on June 8 and run through September 2, and they will take place at 6 PM two evenings each week at the Georgetown Waterfront Park, with sessions ranging from CrossFit to barre to yoga.

Local restaurants are joining the movement with “fit food,” including a Maria Light Menu with low calorie, sodium, and fat offerings at Fiola Mare; healthy breakfasts of egg white frittatas and green juice at Seasons; and lean lobster and vinaigrette slaw at Luke’s Lobster.
