Providence Gym is Holding Halloween BOO(t) Camp on October 31st

PROVIDENCE, RI – Providence Fit Body Boot Camp will hold a Halloween BOO(t) Camp event throughout the day on Halloween, Saturday, October, 31st, from 10:30am to 2:30pm, when special workout sessions will be held at the gym – all to raise funds for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer programs.


“I always look for ways to combine promoting healthy exercise and prevention messages while raising awareness, in this case about breast cancer, and raising funds. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it was a perfect fit to talk about healthy living, get in some fun exercise and raise funds at the same time.  Having it on Halloween?  That’s an extra plus to make the event even more fun,” said Matt Espeut, owner of Providence Fit Body Boot Camp.


Anyone can participate – you need not be a gym member – but registration is required.  Go to: and sign up for one of seven sessions happening throughout the day. Espeut says, “we encourage you to wear your flare, if you dare”.


Providence Fit Body Boot Camp is located at 1284 North Main Street, on the Providence/Pawtucket line. Free, plentiful parking is in the rear of the building.  For more information, call 453-3200.
