Be Active Together!

Sometimes we need a little motivation when it comes to working out!   Well, Southie resident Hannah Frelich has created an app that combines workout and socializing!  Be Active Together is a new mobile app that uses real-time scheduling and instant messaging to make it easier to workout or play sports together.  

Whether it’s playing hoops, running around Castle Island or taking a class, Be Active Together will help you…well…be active together!  Now that spring is finally here, it’s the perfect excuse to put away the flannels, get off the couch and meet some new people!

We had a little Q&A with Hannah about her new app:

How long have you lived in Southie?
I’ve lived in Southie for six years.  I moved here after graduating from BC in 2009 and have been here ever since!

Favorite spots to workout in Southie?
I’ve been a member at Gold’s gym since I lived here.  I joined because my sister was going at the time and have stayed because it’s ver reasonably priced and as an entrepreneur and former teacher, I’ve always had a tight budget!  I have also taken some boxing class at the Club by George Foreman III and thought the classes were really great!

Who did you design the app for?
I designed the app for anyone who likes to be active or wants to be more active and enjoys the benefits of “social fitness” (working out with a partner or group).  This description encompasses a wide range of people.  It could be an extremely athletic person who trains for marathons and is looking for someone to train with because they train harder in the company of another person.  Or it could be someone like me, who has the desire to be more active but finds it difficult to self-motivate at times, and thus needs the motivation and accountability of their peers.  

What can people expect when they use your app?
People can expect to have more fun and experience more consistency with their exercise routine when they use the Be Active Together app.  

Favorite spot in Southie to blow off some steam?
My favorite place in Southie to blow off some steam would be Stephi’s – their Doli martini is delicious!
