Last year, when we told you guys about the debut of Camp Bonfire — a summer camp for adults in the Poconos, started by Philly-based theatre artist Benjamin Camp and event producer Jacob Winterstein — you all freaked out. Because, the (kind of sad) truth about adulthood is that nothing warrants excitement quite like the chance to behave like a 12-year-old again. So, we can only imagine you’ll be just as giddy as you were last year when we tell you that Camp Bonfire is setting up shop in the Poconos for a second year this summer.

Your Weekend Workout Playlist: Girl-Power Anthems Galore

In case you missed it, earlier this week, Adele was on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke, and she did many amazing things, saying very British things like “me hairline” and rapping to Nicki Minaj’s “Monster,” to name a few. But the best part of the segment, in my opinion, was when she sang along to the Spice Girls and admitted that, back when she and her friends used to pretend they were the Spice Girls, she was always Geri. Then, she proceeded to to confess that when Geri left the group, it was the first time she was truly heartbroken. And now, she’s made a career off of being heartbroken, and she probably owes it all to that moment. (She didn’t say that, I’m just sayin’.)

But anyway, that’s beside the point. The point is: Seeing Adele sing along to “Wannabe” reminded me how much I love the Spice Girls. They defined girl power for many-a 90s child and they made patent leather skirts socially acceptable — both impressive feats. So, I dedicate this week’s playlist to them: Below, you’ll find a playlist full of girl-power anthems — complete with lots of Spice Girls, of course. Happy sweating! Read more »

Over the summer, we noticed that Philly native Kevin Hart was killing the fitness game on Instagram: He is a big fan of the gym selfie and often posts videos of himself getting his sweat on and/or acting a fool (because he is a comedian, after all) while surrounded by weights. And his Instagram posts aren’t his only mark on the fitness world: Over, the summer, while on his latest comedy tour, Hart, in collaboration with Nike, was holding pop-up Run With Hart 5Ks in cities all over the country (he stopped in Philly at the end of August). So, if he wasn’t already up there in your mental list of celebrity fitness idols, he’s about to be. Read more »
