We’ve got lots of fun stuff on the fitness roster this week, from cheering on Broad Street runners (if you aren’t running yourself) to outdoor yoga followed by beer with CoreFitness to a seriously tough H.I.I.T. run to the Art Museum, and more. Take your pick, people!
1. The Broad Street Run
When: Sunday, May 3rd at 8 a.m.
Where: Starts at Broad Street and Somerville Avenue; ends on South Broad Street at the Navy Yard.
If you aren’t one of the 40,000 folks running the iconic annual 10-miler, then whip out your arts-and-crafts box, make a funny sign, and head out to Broad Street, anywhere between Somerville Avenue and the Navy Yard in South Philly, on Sunday morning to cheer the runners on.
The brand spankin’ new Lululemon at Cherry Hill Mall opens on Friday, and all sorts of fun stuff will be going on throughout the weekend. Saturday they’ll have an all-day party, complete with a DJ and yoga-mat art station. And Sunday morning, the day will kick off will a free yoga class at 9:30 a.m. Post-yoga, they’ll have fresh Animo juice on tap to help you refuel, plus all sorts of stuff for Broad Streeters, like chair massages and a foam rolling station.
3. Detox Retox with CoreFitness
When: Saturday, May 2nd at 11 a.m.
Where: City Tap House, 3925 Walnut Street, University City.
Well, this is a sweet deal: $20 will get you an outdoor yoga class led by CoreFitness on City Tap House’s outdoor patio, plus a cold beer afterward. Perfect start to the weekend, don’t you say?
4. Free Classes at Allongée Studio
When: Friday, May 1st and Sunday, May 3rd.
