Fun and fitness come for free thanks to November Project

It may be called the November Project, but a free fitness program spreading across the world is helping people create a healthier lifestyle even in the middle of the hot Georgia summer.

November Project was created in Boston as a way to keep people active and moving during the cold weather months.  But the idea of these big, free group workouts – described as “tribal” by those who take part – has spread to cities around the globe, including Atlanta. 

Locals Alexa Lampasona and Christian Lopez lead November Project ATL, which meets for workouts every Wednesday and Friday morning at 6:27 a.m.  The group meets on the North Avenue Bridge on the Atlanta Beltline on Wednesday mornings, and moves to various locations around the city on Fridays, and people of all fitness levels and abilities are welcome to join in.  All November Project ATL events are completely free and open to the public, and organizers say they’ve been averaging around 75 people attending each workout session.

Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken was one of those 75 people this morning, as he spent some time with the folks behind November Project ATL learning more about their mission of motivating people to get in shape.
