NEW HAMPSHIRE, USA — The former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, otherwise known as Big Papi, hosted a virtual "work-in" Wednesday night with a New Hampshire-based Planet Fitness.
The virtual class is part of Planet Fitness's "United We Move Home Work-Ins" series, an effort of the gym to keep people active while home during the coronavirus pandemic.
The classes are about 20 minutes long and free; no equipment is required.
Other New England sports stars have also hosted classes. New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman hosted a class back in April.
