Boston is perennially ranked as one of the fittest cities in the US, and the Boxer ensures that its guests have access to all of their exercise needs during their stay:
24-Hour Fitness Center
For those desiring only a quick cardio workout to keep active, the Boxer offers 24-hour access to its fitness center. This guarantees a place to break a sweat regardless of your schedule or time constraints. With a treadmill, stationary bike, elliptical machine, and a selection of free weights, as well as complimentary water and towels, this is a sound choice around the clock.
Boston Sports Club
For guests looking for a more intense workout and a much larger gym, The Boxer has you covered. Free for all of the hotel’s guests, the Boston Sports Club’s Government Center location, only a five-minute-walk from the hotel, is accessible with a keycard and picture ID. This location has just about everything one would need, from several different kinds of cardio and weight machines to free weights.
On top of your typical equipment, this BSC also features a relaxing sauna and UXF Training Zone, an area with an array of innovative equipment that focuses on both strength and conditioning. Boxer guests can also take part in a variety of classes offered at the gym on a first come, first served basis including yoga, cycling, pilates, and total body conditioning.

The November Project
This free movement began in Boston and is a great way for people of all fitness levels to work out with a community of healthy-minded individuals. Meeting times and locations are announced every week on the Boston Blog and the November Project Tracker, and participants must offer only a verbal commitment prior to each session to take part. Boston workouts include conquering the stone steps of Harvard Stadium, running hills in Brookline, and “Destination Deck,” a game involving a deck of cards and an abundance of pushups and crunches.
Another fun and relaxing way to exercise in Boston on a nice day is to rent one of many available watercrafts for a Charles River excursion. Charles River Kayak and Canoe has locations in both Boston and Cambridge and offers kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, paddleboats, and rowboats for hourly and daily rentals. Explore the river at your own pace or sign up for a guided tour for a more structured, informative experience. There’s no better way to mix exercise and a unique view of the great city of Boston.
