But there come those days — usually after an irresponsible, happy hour-induced online shopping spree — where I have to make a choice: A $20 workout class or $20 for SEPTA tokens for the week. SEPTA tokens always win. (Side note: Anyone want to help turn me into a responsible, budget-loving, money mastermind?) But thanks to this handy list, no money doesn’t have to mean no workout: Here, how to work out in Philly for free.99 every day of the week this summer. Happy sweating, people!

For me, sometimes a $24 workout class feels totally reasonable — usually right after pay day. Then there are days when I’m like “Okay, dear self, you can go to that $24 workout class OR you can eat something besides beans for the next week.” And if you’re better at budgeting than I am, I applaud you — but still, doesn’t everyone love a free workout every now and then?
