The October New Balance Girls Night Out Boston is always an emotional one for me.
Breast Cancer stole my Great-Aunt Bobbie away.
I didn’t get much time with Auntie Bobbie but I think I get my love of advertising (she lived Mad Men) and the Red Sox from her.
I think of her often and hope she’s proud of me.
This particular workout was MCed by Sherri from Fit Fun Flavor.
Here’s what I said about both workouts in my Dunwello review:
Eliza taught a free kick it session in Copley Square as part of New Balance’s Girls Night Out program on 10/15. I was an attendee and was inspired by Eliza’s energy. We were moving the entire class! Eliza would often leave the stage to stand next to women working out and either hold her hands out for fighters to punch or do the moves right next to the women in the class. It was very motivating. The class seemed appropriate for both newbies and veterans.
Susan was one of the trainers for New Balance Girls Night Out Boston, for the “Kick Breast Cancer” theme. I was really impressed. Even thought this was a free class, she still spent time making sure to teach proper form for the boxing moves we were doing. I felt like I was getting an education in fighting skills along with the workout. In fact, with one of the moves, I had some muscle memory from self-defense training. She also wore a Komen tee shirt and really focused on the theme of the night, reminding us that this workout was in honor of women fighting breast cancer. I’d be very interested in taking a boxing class with her at The Club.
