While Boston was ranked the sixth healthiest city in the country in the American College of Sports Medicineís 2013 American Fitness Index, obesity rates remain a challenge. According to the 2014-2015 Health of Boston Report, 22% of adults and 14% of high school students are obese. These rates are even higher among communities of color. Only about half of adults in Boston report exercising regularly.

By engaging in a citywide effort to increase opportunities for physical activity, the Parks Department and BPHC aim to decrease rates of obesity for all of Bostonís residents. This yearís series looks to build upon previous program efforts by expanding the number of parks that offer free classes to city residents and making them more accessible to all neighborhoods.

In extending this opportunity into the neighborhoods, the Boston Parks Summer Fitness Series aims to further reduce barriers to active living and achieve the goal of ensuring that Bostonians across the city have ample opportunity to be active.
