Because of your support, Level Ground will open our Athletic, Academic, and Job Training Center in January 2017!  The Training Center will also provide free & affordable Personal Training and MMA classes to all Boston residents, no matter income.

Youth will serve as our Personal Trainers, Fitness Instructors, and Managers!

Check out this video to see what the Training Center will look like in action!

The LG Training Center will include 2,700 sq. feet of mat space for athletics, the Beat 58 Personal Training Studio, and our Academic and Job Training Classroom.

LG aims to raise $35,000 ($20K online, $15K offline) by mid-January. Funds will go towards vital equipment and renovations, as well as wages for our Student Trainers.
Between our online and offline donations as of 11/22/2016, we have already reached 40% of this goal!

With your help, the LG Training Center will serve hundreds of more young people through our wraparound services. Together, we will also empower our Student Trainers to become fitness leaders in their community and address key health disparities in urban Boston.

Coming January 2017: Level Ground Training Center

construction

We are so excited to announce that Level Ground has secured our own 6,300 sq. foot Training Center in urban Boston!

The LG Training Center will include 2,700 sq. feet of mat space for athletics, the Beat 58 Personal Training Studio, and our Academic and Job Training Classroom.

In March, LG will offer limited paying classes and youth-led Personal Training services for adults, and will expand our offerings in May.  Our goal is for the Training Center to achieve complete sustainability by September 2017.  Our primary staff will be our Student Trainers, of course! 

About the “Beat 58 Personal Training Studio:”

This Studio will offer free and affordable Personal Training services to low-income adults, and is managed by our Student Trainers.  Beat 58 catalyzes youth to use their passion for fitness and change the trend of early life expectancy in urban neighborhoods.  This initiative was inspired by a BU Study that found that the average life expectancy for Roxbury residents is just 58 years old, in large part due to preventable chronic disease linked lack of physical activity.

The Beat 58 Personal Trainer Studio is launched in partnership with ACCEPT Personal Training School and HoodFit, and funded by The Boston Foundation’s Collaborate Boston award.
