Accelerated Fitness is up to a lot of Good!

It is the Holiday season and Accelerated Fitness wants to say thanks to all of our clients!

Thanksgiving morning we will be holding a charity boot camp in our Glastonbury location (259 Eastern Blvd).  We will be taking donations for a local food bank and also for breast cancer.

The class is free and open to everyone, so bring a friend or family member. If you can’t make it but want to donate, we will have a food drop box at our studio in Cromwell or you can drop a check off made out to “Making Strides Breast Cancer Foundation”.

We are running a special on our boot camp in Cromwell, 10 classes for $99.00! This is open to the first 15 people in the all levels class and the first 10 people in the advanced class, so call me back and let me know that you are interested.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!!
