On Saturday, March 25th, Philadelphia will be graced with the presence of two (2!) Bachelorette celebs: Shawn Booth, who won the heart and hand of Kaitlyn Bristowe on season 11 of the show, and the Bachelorette herself. And it gets better: They’re hosting a workout — and you’re invited. (We promise not to judge if you’re jumping with joy.)

Booth, a personal trainer, has teamed up with Erin Oprea — a Nashville-based celebrity fitness trainer who actually trains Bristowe and Carrie Underwood (ohhh), among others — to create CitySTRONG, a touring fitness party DJ’d by Bristowe. CitySTRONG is visiting cities all across the country and hosting workouts with the goal of helping residents experience their city in a new way — as their gym. Other tour stops include Dallas, Chicago and San Diego, just to name a few. And, lest you be embarrassed by the pure glee you’re experiencing at the thought of being up close and personal with Bachelorette cast members, do know: a portion of CitySTRONG events proceeds go to CreatiVets, an organization that provides disabled veterans with the opportunity to use art, music and creative writing to help overcome service-related traumas. So there.

CitySTRONG will be rolling into Center City’s 23rd Street Armory at 22 South 23rd Street at 11 a.m. on the 25th. All you need to bring to get in on the workout is your yoga mat; CitySTRONG sweat towels will be provided. And, after the workout, Vital Proteins will be whipping up some yummy recovery protein shakes. All of this celebrity workout excitement will cost you $40; you can sign up here.
