Good news, guys: We’ve got one more class to add to the very, very, very long list of free fitness classes around Philly this summer. Starting tomorrow, SWEAT Fitness will be hosting a free Zumba class every Thursday evening in Manayunk. And get this: The soundtrack to the hourlong session will be spun by a live DJ. So basically, it’s a post-work dance party in the park. Um, yes, please!
Summer is prime time for concert goers here in Philly. (Don’t believe us? See what our pals over at Ticket have to say about it.) Sweat Fitness is getting in the spirit with a Summer Concert Cycling Series in July and August, a slew of theme rides that are open to gym members and the public.
The classes will feature playlists chock-full of hits from the big names coming to town, including Katy Perry (Wells Fargo Center, August 4th and 5th), Miley Cyrus (Wells Fargo, August 2nd), Bruno Mars (Susquehanna Bank Center, July 17th) and Billy Joel (Citizens Bank Park, August 2nd). There are even rides dedicated to the Made in America festival, one of which—August 27th at 6:30 p.m. at Sweat on Arch Street—will feature a live DJ during the ride and post-workout wine and snacks.
It’s hard to squeeze in a Friday afternoon workout when, come 5 o’clock, happy hour is just screaming your name. But thanks to SWEAT Fitness, this weekend you don’t have to choose between working out and boozing it up: This Friday, SWEAT Fitness’ South Philly location is hosting a BYOB Vinyasa yoga class. And this class beats even the cheapest of happy hours, because it’s totally free!
Guys, the first day of spring is officially upon us: Thursday marks the day that we can all, at least mentally, put this awful winter behind us. It also marks the first Sweat Fitness Run Club run of the season, with trainers Orlin Howell and Josh Everetts leading free weekly runs from the South Philly gym.
