Back in November, ClassPass ticked off many a workout junkie by getting rid of their Unlimited membership option, trading that in for three, five and 10-class monthly membership options. If you were one of the angry ClassPass users venting your frustrations and throwing around the C-word (that would be cancel) on Facebook, do note: ClassPass has just added a perk with a lot of potential to their offerings. And it could even make you a ClassPass believer again.

A farmers’ market on fleek (are the kids still saying that?), a donut-fueled 5K, an open streets run: That’s just a handful of the fun April has in store for you. There’s a ton of fitness and foodie fun (much of it free!) to be had this month, so read up, then plan accordingly.
Ladies, ladies, ladies: Go ahead and clear your schedules for May 12th through 14th. That, my friends, is when the ladies behind Rise Gatherings will be putting on their very first “women’s transformative adult summer camp experience” at Camp Canadensis in the Poconos, about two hours from Philly. And the whole thing sounds like something I made up in a dream. Think: a weekend filled with waterfall hikes, rock climbing, yoga, vision and goal-setting workshops, 305 dance fitness classes (YASSS), and no boys allowed. I think that calls for another YASSSS.

There are a slew of new healthy eateries popping up around the city, and we can’t wait to go explore trails, try out new spring races, and generally be outside without our fingers feeling like they are about to freeze off. To expand on this excitement, we chatted with 17 Philly fitness pros to find out what’s on their spring fitness bucket lists once the city thaws out. Soak up some inspiration for your own must-do list below.
