Thanksgiving is officially behind us, which can only mean one thing: The rest of the holidays — and holiday gatherings — are right around the corner. Some readers (the ones with non-probing family members) may be screaming “HOORAY!” while others dread the unwanted queries that come along with seeing family all over again (you know the ones: “I thought you two broke up?” “When’s the wedding?” “What’s Tinder?”). Just thinking about it can be stressful. Trust us: We know. And we’ve got the perfect (free!) way for you to de-stress. For two full weeks of December, Manayunk’s The Wall, which recently added yoga to their offerings, will be offering folks the chance to try a bunch of their yoga classes for free.
Moms, if you so want to work out but don’t have the time to hit the gym sans baby, we get it. Babies get attached (and hey, so do we), so it’s not exactly easy to leave them behind. But what if we told you that you could still get in an awesome muscle-burning workout without having to choose between your little human and the gym? Starting Wednesday, October 5th our friends at The Wall Cycling Studio in Manayunk will be offering FREE (yes, you read that right) baby Bjorn barre classes. All you need to bring is your baby Bjorn and of course, your baby. And if you’re not a new mom, they’ve got something for you too: They’re offering $10 classes to everyone else every Wednesday evening through October.
Waaaaay back in April, we told you about the Wall Cycling Studio’s plans to move into a new, bigger space in Manayunk and add barre classes to its repertoire. At the time, owner Juliet Sabella was pretty tight lipped about where, exactly, the new studio would be located. Well, today she finally spilled the beans. Read more »
Before I say this, let it be known: I love me a good spin class. But there’s just something about posting up on a bike for an hour in an indoor — often dark — studio with a bunch of men and women who are sweating their faces off onto the carpet with you that just feels sort of blah, you know?
And that’s why, when Juliet Sabella of Manayunk’s The Wall Cycling Studio let us know the studio would be hosting a rooftop spin (yes, rooftop spin) series this summer, my eyes lit up big time. No offense to all the fellow spin-class takers out there, but a view of something other than someone else’s sweaty, pained face — the sky, at that!— is something I could very much get down with.
If you’re running the Hot Chocolate 15K/5K on Saturday, hold on to your bib after you cross the finish line. The Wall Cycling Studio in Manayunk is offering free indoor cycling classes to Hot Chocolate runners all next week, but you need your entry bib to score the deal. Read more »
Our pals over at The Wall in Manayunk are getting down with their bad selves this Thursday. They’re bringing in a live DJ to spin tunes for two evening classes.
In case you needed a little more motivation to get your butt to that midweek spin class, here’s something that’ll sweeten the pot. Beginning tonight, the Wall Cycling Studio in Manayunk is hosting a weekly Healthy Hour at Winnie’s Le Bus after its Wednesday night classes. Getting a great workout and then indulging in some guilt-free drinks? Sounds like solid Hump Day plans to me.
