Workout for the Cure

Join us for two amazing fitness classes and a lot of fun as we work out together in the fight against Breast Cancer. 

The first part of the class will be 45 minutes of Cardio Kick led by Eliza Shirazi.  After a 15 minute water break we will kick it back into action with a Barreless Barre class led by Catherine Marshall. 

Cardio Kick is a cardio kickboxing class that works out your whole body while losing yourself in upbeat music. Barreless Barre is a class that targets every muscle group using small isometric movements accompanied by cardio movements to get the heart rate up. 

So join us as we raise money for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and exercise and dance our way for a cure!

 

Eliza Shirazi

Kick It, which was founded in 2009, encompasses her signature group fitness classes and health & wellness coaching. Along with instructing classes, Eliza has done several kick-a-thons to help raise money for important causes. One of her biggest accomplishments was the kick-a-thon that helped in raising enough money to build a library in India for the global non-profit, Room to Read. Check the Media/Press tab to view more of her accomplishments!

Kick It was developed at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, implemented at the University of Cape Town in South Africa, and now hitting Boston! This fitness pioneer currently works full-time as a ClimbCorps member for Brigham and Women’s hospital, helping to revolutionize fitness & health in Boston.

 

 

 

 

 

Catherine Marshall

Catherine began teaching Barre (Core Fusion TM) at Exhale Spa in the heart of Boston in 2007.   Back then, a stress fracture in her foot from excessive running benched her from the road, and her love for barre, as a complement to her running, exploded into a passion.   She took classes throughout the 4 month healing process and used class as a tool to balance out her weakened left side.  This process strengthened Catherine’s belief in the benefits of the program and her passion to want to spread this program to others. She adds that energy and focus towards every student in each class in a motivating and athletic way.

She is proud to be trained by Fred Devito and Lis Halfpap, the master trainers and business managers of the first barre exercise program in the US (1971), the Lotte Berke method. Catherine teaches all disciplines of Exhale’s Core Fusion program including Core Boot camp, Core Cardio, and Core Sport and  has had over 2500 teaching hours experience and over 250 hours of training in anatomy, physical alignment, and class instruction.   Catherine studied functional anatomy at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai in NYC and is a member of the Evidence Based Fitness Academy as a Barefoot Training Specialist.    


Reebok is a proud supporter of the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and will donate a minimum of $300,000 up to $750,000 to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusafe, through our pink ribbon product sales to support access to care and to help find a cure for breast cancer.

B.I.G. Canton - Speak & Be Heard

Creator of Powerful Women Revealed. Nicole Perry is a Radio Talk Show Host, Leader and Entrepreneur as well as an aspiring Inspirational Speaker.

At this meeting Nicole will share lots of valuable knowledge that she has acquired through her own journey of becoming an Entrepreneur, Leader and Radio Talk Show Host. She will share her own personal challenges with public speaking and how she continues to overcome these obstacles. It is an ongoing process that we “can” fine tune each and every day. This meeting is for you if you have found yourself at a fast paced networking event wanting to crawl under the nearest chair/table, have been to your child’s school classroom with other parents and hid behind your phone, or you have experienced a board room meeting with new faces, and you suddenly panick, oh no I haveto speak next, OMG I’m next!

Opportunities to practice public speaking present themselves each day. We all know that, “Fear and Excitement are extremely similar”. It can be scary… OR it can be fun! And if you are going to be remembered, you would most likely rather be remembered for the passion for what you do vs. your fear of sharing your passion. This meeting will be interactive in an easy way, with a fun and inspirational twist so that you can come out of the meeting with some simple new techniques that you can utilize right away. When you leave this meeting you will be looking for your calendar for the next opportunity to speak and be heard.

In addition, Nicole will share some tips and inspirations in truth and in part by being a quester of Ted Talks, a member of Toastmasters, oh, and some very cool tips from lots of really smart people!
