Looking for a weekend sweat session worthy of your time? Well, Fitness Works, Fitness Alive and PHL Athletics are teaming up Saturday, April 22nd (Earth Day), to get sweaty for Autism Awareness Month — and the workout sounds pretty darn awesome. The fitness trio put together a three-part workout that works in spinning, running and a boot camp-style full-body workout. And to make the deal even sweeter, 100 percent of the proceeds raised at the event directly benefit the Center for Autism Research at CHOP.
Here’s the deal: The workout kicks off at Fitness Works, at 714 Reed Street in South Philly, promptly at 9 a.m. on Saturday with a 20-minute Power Spin ride on the gym’s brand-spankin’-new spin bikes. Without missing a beat, the group will then take off on a one-mile run down Passyunk Avenue to PHL Athletics, at 2017 South Juniper Street. Once there, they’ll dive into a 20-minute total-body workout to round out the morning. Since there are a limited number of bikes, the workout will run in waves, with folks who finish at PHL Athletics first cheering on folks who are still sweating it out. The Ride, Run and Reps for Autism team is asking for a minimum donation of $25 from each participant to support the cause.
Oh! And post-workout, they’ll have all sorts of treats from folks like Yards Brewing Company, Knead Bagels, Christina Cooks and more. So your donation gets you a killer workout, post-workout beer and checks off your good deed for the day. You can keep up with event updates on their Facebook event page here and grab your ticket here.
