The 'November Project' started in Boston and has now grown to more than 40 cities nationwide...and it has found a quickly growing home here in Buffalo!

The November Project was started in Boston during the month of November as a way for two friends to keep each other active during the cold winter months. Now, communities across the country host free, positive workouts for hundreds of people at a time.

Steve Procknal and Jason Jerome are co-leaders of the November Project Buffalo. During each early morning workout, Procknal and Jerome shout encouragements and offer countless high-fives. The group usually meets at the steps of the Albright Knox Gallery every Wednesday morning, rain or shine and start their workout at promptly 6:10 a.m. 

Each workout lasts 30 minutes and is accessible and available to any person, regardless of their fitness level. If you're interested in joining, no need to sign up. Just show up ready to make friends and get your heart racing.

The free morning workout starts with a "bump" which includes hugs and encouragement and ends with the 'Shout song' and a group photo.
