We can’t wait to see you all again!! All IN PERSON group classes will be held in the Riverside. All participants will enter and exit Riverside. Advance sign up will be required on the Fortitude Health and Training app. Class size will be limited to 12. Each individual will check in for class no more than 5 minutes before the start of class outside of the building at the Riverside entrance. You will be assigned a large workout “square” of approximately 7.5 x 12 feet. The space between your workout “square” and the next “square” will exceed the NH State minimum and keep you at least 10 feet from the next person. A mask will be strictly required to enter and may be removed once you have proceeded directly to your square. Your equipment will be waiting for you! You must remain in your workout square for the duration of class and exit promptly with your mask on when dismissed at the end of class. Locker rooms including toilets will be closed. Class end and start times will include a 30 minute buffer zone so that staff may completely wash/sterilize the entire Riverside floor, all equipment and also allow for air exchange. Your instructor will undergo screening including temperature taken each day upon arrival to teach. FortCycle classes will also be held in Riverside during the Soft Reopening. Periodic outdoor classes will continue to be held, as encouraged by the Governor. All in person single classes or class packages may be purchased on the app OR are included for unlimited members!
You may bring your own water, mat and towel for all classes – those services are suspended during the Soft Reopening. Please note that because in person classes are currently limited to 12 and because every individual should have the opportunity to participate in class, those canceling within 12 hours of every in person class or no showing will be assigned a $15 automatic late cancel charge.
In addition to IN PERSON CLASSES, you can continue to sign up for LIVESTREAM CLASSES! And guess what? When you sign up for a livestream class will have the opportunity to participate in that class livestream OR anytime you’d like over the following 24 hours – a link to the filming of that class, accessible for members and those with a paid class in their account will be emailed to you automatically approximately 30 minutes after the finish if you had signed up for that class. Livestream classes may be purchased on the app or are included for unlimited members.

Danielle Perrault and I have been coaching healthy lifestyle for 30 years, sharing with the Fortitude community and the people of New Hampshire the holy grail of immunity, happiness, and, ultimately, longevity. The secret really isn’t a secret. The Costa Ricans have been living la pura vida or, translated, good or simple life, for centuries. It works. Here are the principles: Eat colorful foods that look the same as they did coming out of the […]
JUNE Just returned from Greece, only gained a pound. Greek salads are the best (fresh veggies, no lettuce) wow I ate these twice a day, every day. However I’ve been a bit frustrated lately….no weight loss since early May. I’m hovering around 25-30 lbs weight loss. So to say I was nervous before this trip would be putting it mildly. In the past, vacations were just an excuse to eat and do whatever I wanted. […]
January 14, 2019 So, it’s Jan 14th, and it is my first day headed to Fortitude. Wow more than a bit nervous here. Tipping the scales at 281, this is the heaviest I’ve ever been and I am demanding a change. I’ve known Lisa Maria-Booth and Dave Booth for a long time as I worked with Dave years ago, and I always heard that Lisa owns a gym. I thought it was a place for […]
March 27, 2019 Somethings working, bc I’m down 20 pounds. This whole journey was started with the realization that I’m turning 50 this year in August. Most years start with a resolution and we all know where they end up, a memory by February, so I chose to make a commitment, I call it 50 4 50. I commit to lose 50 pounds in the year I turn 50, seems a bit more serious than […]
March 6, 2019 Nutrition, you can’t outwork a bad diet. Lisa and I had a had a serious sit down for the most informative one on one session I have ever had about nutrition. Quite honestly, sounds easy enough, eat less and exercise more. Burn more than you take in, create a deficit. The amount of info is like drinking water from a fire hose. She had a clear and detailed presentation to outline the […]
