It’s been a while since we gave you a good reason to travel to the ‘burbs, city dwellers. So we decided to give you five of them. Actually, if you consider this post an addendum to our last go-round with this very subject — the subject being, of course, suburban fitness classes worth braving highway traffic — you actually have 13 sweat-filled reasons to gas up your car and hit the road. Road trip, anyone? 

Rev Ride & Boxing
Where: Rev Indoor Cycling and Fitness, 3342 Limekiln Pike, Chalfont.
What: This may be the ultimate two-for-one workout: 30 minutes on a Spin bike, followed by 30 minutes punching the daylights out of a bag. Can you think of anything sweatier?

On the Ball
Where: PB3, 800 North Kings Highway, suite 100, Cherry Hill.
What: You probably know how to do a sit-up on a stability ball, but when’s the last time you spent a full hour challenging your entire body on a stability ball? That’s exactly what you’ll do at this class, located inside this eight-month-old spa-and-fitness center in Cherry Hill. And you’ll leave with your shaking muscles from head to toe.

GFit Women
Where: Locations in Huntingdon Valley and Dresher.
What: Maybe we’re biased — yes, GFit Women founder Allison Schwartz was one of our Health Hero Challengers last year — but we think a super empowering, super motivating, super sweaty all-women workout is 100 percent worth schlepping to the ‘burbs for. Alli describes her workouts as CrossFit-like, but for ladies only. So get ready to work hard and experience some serious girl power.

Tread & Shred
Where: Superfit Gym, 1050 Colwell Lane, Conshohocken.
What: If you’re a runner and need to take it indoors this winter (you know, snow, cold weather, etc.), this is the best way to do it. This sweat-filled workout includes 30 minutes of treadmill intervals and 30 minutes on the floor for strength training. In fact, it’s so intense, the workout requires two trainers just to get you through it.

Where: Body Ride, locations in Limerick and King of Prussia.
What: Think you’re a barre-shredding pro? Think again. This is one intense barre class (hence, um, the name) that will have even the most seasoned vet shaking in her grippy socks. Best part? Your first two classes at this two-location studio are free. (Note: Body Ride publishes its class schedule on Sundays for the following two weeks. You can see what’s coming up here.)
