The Free Group Workouts for #MyCityMoves Sound PRETTY Awesome

Hint: There’s a silent disco workout involved.

At this point, you’re either one of the nearly 1,000 Philadelphians who are signed up City Fitness’s second annual #MyCityMoves workout challenge or you’re not. (If you’re in the latter group, you should’ve read our guide to the coolest Philly fitness events in March! Next time.) For those in the first group, the folks over at City Fitness just gave us the intel on the free fitness events Run215 has designed for participants throughout the competition, which starts tomorrow, and they sound pretttttttty cool.

Here goes: Tomorrow, Saturday, March 11th, they’ll be hosting the first of three free fitness events, a boot camp workout dubbed #GroundWerk at Penn’s Ace Adams Field that will be led by Fabiana Ferrarini, Gwi Murawha, Jayel Lewis, Jon Lyons and Wayne Mutata. It’ll kick off at 10 a.m., and it’s open to anyone signed up for #MyCityMoves, no RSVP necessary.

Next up will be a #GetLow workout, which is — get this — a silent hip-hop disco party abs workout. Participants will have headphones on that allow them to hear the instructor and hear music, but the event will appear silent to anyone walking by. Cool, right? The workout, led by Molly Electro at Thomas Paine Plaza (UPDATE: This event was moved to the Warehouse on Watts due to weather and is limited to the first 100 people to arrive), will kick off at 10 a.m. and will end with a dance party. City Fitness hasn’t yet decided whether there will be sign-up for this event, so keep up with them on social media for info.

The last shindig will be a special #NightShiftPHL, Run215’s pop-up nighttime running workouts. Details of this, per usual, will be announced by Run215 24 hours in advance.

These shindigs should help you get those in MEPs (those are MYZONE effort points, for the uninitiated), huh?
