You can say goodbye to the Sunday scaries (at least for the next month or so). Lululemon is teaming up with the recently opened KG Strong fitness studio to offer free hourlong community classes at South Philly’s Bok Building every Sunday for the next six weeks. And trust us: You’ll be too beat afterward to feel anything aside from sweaty and exhausted.
Remember last year when the folks at Lululemon teamed up with Strava to turn Philly’s Schuylkill River Trail into a virtual race course for a full week? Well, they’re back at it again. Yesterday, Lululemon Philadelphia announced on Facebook that the Ghost Race will be making its return to the trail — with a new route this time around — from October 13th through 22nd. Yippee!
• Did you know Lululemon has a “We Made Too Much” sale section on their website? Shopping it can save you a good chunk of change on everything from leggings to sports bras.(Excuse us while we bookmark that page.) Here, 13 other tips for saving money on your fitness addiction, from which day of the month to score your gym membership for the best price to how to use your ClassPass to get the most bang for your buck, and more.

In my opinion, there are few better ways to spend a Tuesday evening than by hunkering down on the couch for Indian food paired with a hefty dose of whatever crazy the Real Housewives of Wherever is serving up that week. (Hi, my name is Adjua Fisher and I’m addicted to trashy TV.) But Lululemon Philadelphia and the Fishtown music venue the Fillmore have teamed up for a Tuesday event that might make me leave the house. On Tuesday, August 8th, Lululemon will be holding Here to Be, “a yoga and music experience,” at the Fillmore — and it sounds positively lovely. And much less stressful than watching Bethenny and Ramona argue over who can and can’t go on the Mexico trip. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, be glad you’ve escaped the pull of the Real Housewives franchise.)
Here in Philly, we’re pretty lucky — there’s almost always a great fitness event going on somewhere. And turns out, some of our very favorite stores and eateries host A LOT of ’em. Below, seven Philly stores that have sweet community fitness calendars filled with everything from runs to pop-up yoga to boot camps and more.
It’s hot out there. Like all-I-want-to-do-is-lay-in-front-of-an-air-conditioner-while-watching-Orange-Is-the-New-Black hot. So we get: Mustering up the motivation to hit your workouts and sweat more than you already are while just living your life might be a bit tough. But one thing that will get you movin’? The promise of a free post-workout popsicle — and the folks at Lululemon Walnut Street are offering you just that this Thursday. Say it with us: Yes, please!
• A truly good sports bra, that doesn’t cut into you when you work out and actually provides support without suffocating you, can be hard to come by. That, it seems, is why women who spend much of their lives sweating are intrigued by Lululemon’s new sports bra, the Enlite, which runs at a pricey $98 and comes in 20 different sizes. And it’s got people talkin’ — first Well + Good gave it a rave review, and now two editors over POPSUGAR give it double thumbs up. [POPSUGAR Fitness]
Last night, I couldn’t fall asleep until 11:30 p.m., and that’s like 4 a.m. in my world, which is filled with premature Grandma-like tendencies like going to bed at 8:45 p.m. on the regular. Why couldn’t I fall asleep, you ask? Well, because I was still buzzing from all the good vibes I soaked up at last night’s Be Well Philly Underground Sweat + Sip + Shop event with City Fitness and the lululemon Local Fishtown.
Going to go ahead and say I told you so: A few weeks ago, we told you guys you were going to want to start paying attention to the free fitness happenings being organized by the folks over at Lululemon’s new Fishtown outpost. But in case you didn’t take that suggestion to heart, we thought we’d bring their truly awesome January lineup of events to your attention: Over the course of 21 days, which kicked off this Monday, they have a free event of some form or another — from hot yoga classes to Spin sessions to resolution mural workshops and more — on the roster, with events going down at the Frankford Avenue store or at studios in the Fishtown ‘hood. Uhhhhhhh, yes, please!
