About Agawam
map
The city of Agawam was founded in 1855 as a town and is located in the Hampden county area. The name Agawam which is an Indian term meaning crooked river was given to the community for its location on the Connecticut River which separates Agawam from Springfield.

Although a city government, the community wishes to be known as The Town of Agawam which has retained its sense of being a small town of tradition does offer many recreational opportunities at the numerous amounts of State Parks and neighboring golf courses.

Agawam is the home of Six Flags New England (formerly Riverside Amusement Park) which included the NASCAR racing track riverside speedway.

Proud of the affordable land and buildings with low tax rates lets residents build good lives and attracts those who dream of buying an affordable home or starting their own business. Agawams setting of historic homes and traditional farm fields with the natural location of the towns mountains and rivers and streams retains an appealing sense of a great place to raise children with family values and good schools and is also a peaceful place to enjoy retirement years.

ACTIVE LIFESTYLE FITNESS, LCC HOSTS 'GO RED' EVENT
AGAWAM FITNESS STUDIO TO ‘GO RED’ IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THE NUMBER ONE KILLER OF WOMEN Agawam, MA- Active Lifestyle Fitness, LLC of Agawam will ‘Go Red for Women’ during the week of February 1st through the 7th in an effort to raise money for the American Heart Association. The fitness studio is encouraging members to wear red during their workout, take selfies to promote the cause on social media and to make a donation. Active Lifestyle Fitness will match the total donations collected. In addition, the studio’s yoga instructor, Nicole Provenzano will be donating a $1.00 for each student who attends her yoga class wearing red on February 1st. According to the American Heart Association, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke every year. The American Heart Association has been working to change the perception that this is not just a man’s disease. Throughout the year Active Lifestyle Fitness works to educate members about heart healthy choices. This event gives them even more of an opportunity to draw attention to healthy living. “We are so proud to take part in such an important cause. Our goal is to educate our members and the public about the importance of exercise and healthy eating, says Ashley Brodeur, owner of Active Lifestyle Fitness. “The week-long event will not only include working out, but recipe swaps on social media and fitness tips. It’s a great way for us to not only educate women about heart disease, but to motivate them to take action,” says Brodeur. The event comes a month after New Year’s resolutions are made and many begin to be broken. Brodeur says that this is just another incentive for people to stick with their healthy lifestyle or start one. You don’t have to be a member to participate in the Go Red event. To take a class or for more information visit Active Lifestyle Fitness’ website, activelifestylefitness.com.
