Dear Fit U families:

I hope you are all doing well and hanging in there with the changes and things we have all had to endure over the last year or so. Last year, as you know, we had to take Fitness University fully virtual because of the COVID restrictions. And while this year, we do intend to have a virtual option for FIt U, I am happy to announce that we have secured a location to be able to have an in-person Fitness University for a limited number of families!

As you know, in the past, we have held Fit U on Tuesday evenings at the track at Nashua South High School. Unfortunately, we have been unable to secure the track at either of the high schools. But, we were able to reach out to the YMCA of Greater Nashua and they are graciously allowing us to use the field located at their Merrimack Branch on Henry Clay Drive.

Things will look a little different this year. We will only be able to allow 50-75 kids at each Tuesday night session (we are still working out on the max number we can get), and the sessions will run from 6:15 until 7:15p.m. on Tuesday nights from June 29 to August 10th. We will have safety procedures in place to follow the local and state COVID guidelines as well.

We are still working out all the details, but I wanted to share the exciting news that we will be able to have some in person sessions in conjunction with the virtual option for families that don’t feel comfortable being in person or who are unable to register.

We plan to release more details and open up registration soon, so stay tuned!

Stay safe and healthy!
