I’m not sure why any of us have bothered writing anything that didn’t have “Eagles” or “Super Bowl” in the headline this week — because, c’mon, we all know that’s all Philadelphia cares about right now. If you need any evidence (besides, you know, all the greased pole doughnuts and Nick Foles prayer candles and Lane Johnson smoothies), Philly gyms are hosting Eagles-themed workouts this week.

While you can always head to Ploome Pilates if you want real Eagles workout, here are a few Super Bowl-inspired ways to sweat in Philly.

“Broad Street Waltz” Workout of the Day

Where: OpenBox Athletics (1931 Washington Avenue)

When: Saturday, February 3, at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., and 11 a.m.

Cost: $20 for a drop-in

Graduate Hospital CrossFit gym OpenBox Athletics is mixing up their WOD for all of Saturday’s classes. Their CrossFit-style class will be “brutal,” according to OpenBox manager Emily Sabalbaro — though you can adjust the weights for each exercise for added or lowered difficulty. Each move for the class is named with an Eagles or Super Bowl-inspired title, while the numbers of reps are based on Eagles jersey numbers. The full workout is as follows:

2 Linemen Shrugs (deadlifts by each partner)
5 Clusters (each partner)
12 Crisco Climbs (a.k.a. rope climbs)
15 It’s OK Tommy Pullups (chest to bar pullups, each partner)
20 Foles to Bar (synchronized toes to the bar)
36 Burpee Blitz (synchronized burpees)
60 Squat Cleans
71 Double Underdogs (jumping rope, with the rope passing beneath you twice before your feet hit the ground)
92 “Deflated” Balls (throwing a medicine ball against the wall)

“Green Edition” Power Flow Yoga

Where: TORC Yoga (31 S 2nd Street)

When: Saturday, February 3, 12:30 p.m.

Cost: $5 if you wear green and/or Eagles fan gear

Old City’s TORC Yoga studio knows everyone is a little stressed over the impending game, so they’re here to help you chill out — we wouldn’t want anyone to have a heart attack, after all. Show up dressed to impress in your best green Eagles fan gear and get into the Power Flow class for just $5 — and be prepared to do your best underdog impression during every downward dog.

#BleedGreen Football Team-Style Workouts

Where: Balance Chestnut Hill (12 W. Willow Grove Avenue)

When: Wednesday, January 31, at 6:30 p.m.; Thursday, February 1, at 6:30 p.m.; Friday, February 2, at 9:15 a.m.; Saturday, February 3, at 7:15 and 8:30 a.m.; and Sunday, February 4, at 9:30 and 10 a.m.

Cost: $20 for a drop-in 45 or 60-minute class; $15 for drop-in 30-minute class

At Balance Chestnut Hill this week, gym-goers have been encouraged to come clad in their game-day gear. Meanwhile, the instructors are working to incorporate football-team-style exercises into their workouts. The idea is to give attendees the feeling of working out with the Eagles through functional training moves. These moves will be used throughout classes like the B-Fit 45 circuit-training class and the B-Strong strength-training workout.

“Fly Eagles Fly” Beer and Pizza Run

Where: Brewery ARS (1927-29 W Passyunk Avenue)

When: Thursday, February 1, 6:30 p.m.

Cost: Free (beer and pizza is on you, though)

For this edition of Charge Performance & Wellness’s weekly beer and pizza run, the crew will be running through the Point Breeze area — but along streets to spell out the word “Eagles.” Afterwards, runners can enjoy $1 off a beer at Brewery ARS and $2 off a specialty pie from Ramble Pizza.

Super Bowl Sunday Boot Camp

Where: Art Museum Steps (2600 Benjamin Franklin Parkway)

When: Sunday, February 4, 9 a.m.

Cost: $20 for 2 registrations with code BeWellPhilly

You’ll want to come dressed in Eagles gear for this outdoor bootcamp on the Art Museum steps. CoreFitness will lead the class through a heart-pounding, hour-long workout — but don’t worry, you’ll be done long before kickoff.
