6 Ways to Have a Fit Halloween in Philly



Tis the season for costumes, jack-o-lanterns, ghouls and goblins. The Philly fitness scene is getting in the Halloween spirit with events meant to scare the living daylights out of you. Or at least, get you nice and sweaty with some bewitching good fun.

Here are our picks for celebrating Halloween, the Be Well Philly way.

1. Free Workouts at Sweat Fitness
All week long

Spooktacular Zumba, black-light cycling, BYOB yoga and a zombie-themed run club meet-up, happening all this week at Sweat Fitness locations around town. Classes are open to members and nonmembers alike.

2. Run4UrLife 3K
Thursday, October 30th

This debut run is being held in West Laurel Hill Cemetery tomorrow night, and there’s still time to register. Note: Race volunteers will be tasked with jumping out from behind trees and tombstones along the way, haunted-house style, so prepared to scream. A lot.

3. Halloween Soundtrack Yoga Classes at Yoga Garden
Friday, October 31st

Both of the studio’s locations—in Philly and Narberth—are hitting all the right notes this Friday with Halloween-themed playlists for their soundtrack yoga classes. You’ll hear tunes like Thriller and Monster Mash at Philly’s Funky Fridays class and spooky headbanger hits at Narberth’s TGIF Vinyasa. Both classes start at 5:45 p.m.

4. Halloween Zumba Party with Philly Dance Fitness
Friday, October 31st

Shake your groove thang to Halloween music. Costumes are encouraged—you’ll get $5 toward a future class if you wear one—but if you don’t have one, don’t worry: PDF will be providing props to help you get in the spirit. The class will be held at Major Moment Studio at 1624 South Street.

5. Halloween Flow at DIG Yoga Philadelphia
Friday, October 31st

From the event description: “Featuring upbeat music, we will play with some creative ‘tricks’ in a supported vinyasa flow practice for the first half of class, then ‘treat’ with delicious restoratives to closing out the evening.” Intrigued, no?

6. Halloween Barre Blast at Barre Focus Fitness
Friday, October 31st

Come in costume to this after-work class in Haverford, and you could win a 10-class card to Barre Focus Fitness. How’s that for incentive?
