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? Yes. The answer is yes. So below, where to find free or pay-what-you-can workouts around Philly every day of the week. Your wallet can give us a nice big hug later. Read more »
The really sad thing about today is that I already know it’s not going to be as good as yesterday, because yesterday, my morning started off bright and early (er, well, dark and early, actually) with candlelight sunrise yoga at Lululemon’s gorgeous, brand spankin’ new Walnut Street store. For our very first Be Well Philly Underground event of the year, we teamed up with Lululemon Walnut Street, along with Stripp’d Juice and Pure Fare for a morning that was kind of unbeatable.

My goals for the new year include: Solve the Adnan Syed Serial mystery (lofty, I know), become a master of making saag paneer and samosas so I stop giving all my disposable income to Ekta, and stay on top of my fitness game, for my mental health, if nothing else. If you share similar goals, I can’t really help you with the first two items, but I can help you with the third: This month, we are hosting two Be Well Philly Underground pop-up workouts that will help you get your sweat on for free-ninety-nine.

The holiday season has arrived and, for me, that means whenever I consider purchasing anything, from an almond milk latte to a yoga class, said purchase gets put through the “Should I buy this for myself OR should I save this money and put it toward that thing my boyfriend/best friend/mom really wants?” thought process. Cue coffee brewed at home and YouTube workouts.
But thanks to the folks at Freehouse Fitness, a studio slated to open somewhere in Center City this coming year (location TBD), we can all quit skimping on our workouts in the name of generosity: For the months of December and January, the studio is offering free classes around town. Lots of them. Read more »
It’s about that time, friends: Time for another Be Well Philly Underground event!
If you aren’t familiar with Underground, here’s the gist: Every month, we host secret pop-up fitness events around Philly. So far, we’ve done a boot camp in Rittenhouse Square followed by an all-you-can eat ice cream social; a glow-in-the-dark run to Yards Brewing Company where every participant got a free pint and a brewery tour; a candlelight hot yoga class with Philly Yoga Factory, taught to live music (it was just as dreamy as it sounds); and more. You can read all about our past Underground events here.
If you’re kicking yourself for missing all of those free workouts (and the free beer), just know: Our next event is coming up soon, and it’s going to be a blast. We’re teaming up with the guys over at Foobooz to show you guys a seriously good (and sweaty) time. We can’t say too much — these Underground pop-ups are top-secret, after all! — but what we will say is this: If you’re a runner, you’ll love this event, and if you like to drink, you’ll love it even more. Sign up to be a member of Be Well Philly Underground — it’s free to join! — so you don’t miss out. Read more »
With the weather turning colder and the days growing shorter, we thought it the perfect time to refresh our guide to free fitness options for the next few months—most of which, you’ll see, are indoor options. As regular Be Well readers know, this post is the latest in our seasonal guides that point you to free workouts all over town. Bookmark it, and add the days and times below to your fitness calendar. Happy sweating!
We posted about a slew of free fitness options earlier this year, but since there are always fun new workouts cropping up, we’ve decided to make the whole free-workout thang a semi-regular feature that we’ll update seasonally. So here you have it: free workouts every day of the week this spring.
If you’ve fallen off the New-Year’s-resolution wagon more than a few times this year, here is the perfect opportunity to hop back on: This April, Yelp Philadelphia is teaming up with over 15 Philly businesses to bring you an entire month’s worth of free fitness and wellness classes. Yep, you read that right: free! It almost sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
