It wasn’t quite two years ago when Philly trainer Hector Bones of Bones Fitness Partners opened The PrivateGym on Walnut Street in Center City (our buds at Be Well Philly gave it a whirl!).

Bridal Fitness: Here’s an Intense Do-Anywhere, 8-Minute Workout From a Philly Trainer

Set your stopwatch for 30 seconds and get ready to work as hard as you can for each interval in this workout. You’re going to do a series of exercises for 30 seconds, interrupted by 30-second sprint intervals. You can do these sprints on a treadmill, bike or elliptical, use a jump rope, or simply just run place in as fast as you can — the options are endless, so don’t feel like you need a gym (or even need to leave the house, really).

Your goal is to complete the eight-minute circuit four times for a quick, cardio-challenging workout. Ready, set, sweat!

PW Reader Ring: Caitlin & Steven!

Caitlin's ring!

Caitlin’s ring!

The couple: Caitlin Harvey and Steven Sztenderowicz, from Manayunk.

The ring: My ring is white gold with a round-cut center diamond with a halo of diamonds set around it. There is a sapphire set on each side of the diamond.

We had talked about getting engaged for a while, so I told him that I only had two requests of the ring: it had to have color and the diamonds had to be sustainably sourced. Steven designed my ring with the help of my best friend and the ring was made by Kranich’s Jewelers in State College.
