New South End gym: Swet Studio

south end fitness, lgbt fitnessSwet Studio opened in the South End last month and what caught my attention was, while all are welcome, it caters to the LGBT community.  I’m not sure there is any place like it in Boston. One look at their classes and schedule and you will realize they have quite a range of unique fitness and dance classes, including same sex ballroom classes, indoor rowing and anti-gravity, aerial yoga just to name a few.Realm Health and Fitness Tips from Kyle, exerciseLater this month on Saturday, November 28th (the Saturday after Thanksgiving) Swet Studio is hosting their first ever Men’s class – Full Body Workout for just $25. Get an amazing full body workout with like-minded guys, followed by a post workout jazz brunch at The Beehive.  All net proceeds from registrations purchased will be donated to Mass Equality Education Fund.

Swet Studio has a first time offer; $20 for your first class. In addition there are some great coupons available on GroupOn; Swet Studio on GroupOn. A couple of classes at Swet could be the perfect holiday gift to give to yourself to offset the celebratory drinks and meals you know you’ll end up consuming.

Max Emerson in the buff on Hashtag Living

Hashtag Living, Max Emerson, Baker MachadoUnderwear model Max Emerson joined host Baker Machado in an episode of Hashtag Living, a show that talks to stars and how they use social media.  Watch the handsome model/actor, Max Emerson, demonstrate an ab work out in the buff. Never has an abs exercise seemed more tantalizing.

After you watch the clip perhaps you’ll want to help him with his kickstarter campaign to help end LGBT homeless youth, here.
