Fleeing to warmer weather after the Big Day? These Philly fitness classes will get your core and booty wedding dress- and swimsuit-ready.

Waspie at Lithe Method, multiple locations

In keeping with your wedding theme, this cardio-cheer-sculpting class—which cinches your waist and tones your backside via resistance bands that hang from the ceiling— requires some commitment. You won’t get every move on the first try, but don’t give up! You’ll thank yourself come time for your tropical getaway, when you feel like you’ve totally earned the right to be a beach bum.

Pilates may be known for giving your abs a serious leaves-you-shaking workout, but after this class, where you’ll zone in on your butt and thighs with standing and kneeling moves, your backside will be trembling, too. It will be worth it when your beachside belfie (that’s a butt selfie, for those who don’t know) makes you feel like Beyoncé. Yandpphilly.com.

Butts and Guts at City Fitness, multiple locations

If your schedule is packed (after all, organizing a seating chart is basically a second job), pencil this 30-minute class into your calendar. The high-intensity workout will tone your abs and butt with moves like lunge jumps and flutter kicks—without taking up too much of your time.
