Listen up, suburbanites! We have some exciting news for you: Unite Fitness, the Midtown Village gym that’s slated to open a Rittenhouse location and a location in Wayne this year, is hosting a free hourlong outdoor boot camp workout on the grounds of their soon-to-open Wayne Studio this Saturday, October 22nd.
In the ultimate Monday workout motivation, recent research found that regularly working out saved folks, on average, anywhere from $500 to $2500 a year. And, conveniently, there are a bunch of free workouts happening around town this week, so you can get your sweat on while keeping those savings in your wallet. (Winning!) We’ve rounded them up below.

Well, this is awesome: As all you loyal Be Well Philly readers out there already know, Unite Fitness is opening a second studio in Rittenhouse this fall.

Thank goodness for spring weather, am I right? Yesterday evening, a bunch of Be Well Philly Undergrounders gathered at the fountain in Logan Square for this month’s Be Well Philly Underground event, the Ben Franklin Parkway Challenge with Unite Fitness.
