There are two things that signal to me that spring really is a comin’: 1) People preemptively donning shorts to go to brunch in 38-degree weather and 2) the announcement of when Yoga on the Pier will start up again. And we, my friends, have spotted both of these signs in the past few days. (Dear fellow humans of the world, please — I beg you — put on a pair of pants. There is SNOW on the ground.)

So, about Yoga on the Pier: In case you aren’t familiar with what it is, Yoga on the Pier is the beloved free yoga series (though donations are always very much welcome and appreciated) held at Race Street Pier in the warmer months, helmed by local yoga instructor Malik Wilson and made possible by the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation. The views of the Ben Franklin Bridge from savasana are amazing. You can bring your (well-behaved) dog. You can bring your kid. Needless to say, it’s pretty awesome. And this year, they’ve added even MORE programming than they offered last year.

Sunrise Kickboxing and Savasana with CKO Kickboxing and CorePower | Be Well Philly

You know what’s better than pressing snooze on a Monday morning? Rolling out of bed to go punch stuff. More specifically, rolling out of bed to go punch a heavy bag at Rittenhouse’s CKO Kickboxing. And you know what’s even BETTER than that? Punching things at CKO Kickboxing and then getting your savasana on at the neighboring CorePower Yoga. And that’s exactly how our morning starting at our Be Well Philly Underground Sunrise Kickboxing and Savasana event today, alongside a crew of dedicated Be Well Philly Undergrounders who will officially serve as our Monday early-morning workout motivation heroes from here on out.

Your (Free!) Spring Workout Calendar: Dilworth Park’s Free Fitness Returns!

This morning, I had to wait at the Girard El stop in 27-degree weather for upward of 20 minutes, watching three packed-like-sardines trains pass before one came that I could squeeze into. By the time I pushed my way onto the car — some days, you just have to be that person — I could not feel my toes anymore.

That said, it’s kind of hard to believe that outdoor workout season, and all of the awesome free fitness that pops up around town along with it, is right around the corner. But it is! And here’s proof: The Center City Parks District has announced the lineup for Spring Training at Dilworth Park, their annual series of free spring workouts hosted at the park. Go ahead and bust out your calendars, people!
