3. When do I have to attend?
Every Friday from February 22nd through March 22nd (5 weeks), we will gather at our Columbus Ave location for Back Bay members and Fenway for Fenway members and begin our Friday Night Lights. Every Wednesday, an email will be sent out to attendees allowing them to sign up for hour long heat blocks. This way, if you are restricted by time, you can get in for a time you can attend.
4. Do I have to attend every Friday Night Lights?
No. While more points are awarded for teams who have more team members attend and participate in Friday Night lights, if you cannot make one or several of the weeks, you are simply encouraged to attend as many as you can! You can also get bonus points for your team by completing the workout before the following Monday at 8pm.
