UPDATE: As of March 29, 2018, this event has been canceled. 

Known as one of the top tourist attractions in Philadelphia, One Liberty Observation Deck is home to insanely good views of the town. While you normally need tickets to see the city from 57 stories up, on April 7, you’ll have the chance to access the Observation Deck for more than just the views. At sunset, Fit Academy is bringing their Silent Boot Camp  — which you may have tried in October at the Navy Yard — to the Observation Deck for a workout and after party.

Sound cool? Yeah, yeah it does. I mean, just look at these views:

Here’s how it’ll work: Everyone who signs up will get a pair of wireless headphones from Silent Philly when they arrive. All attendees will then be divided into three groups, each set on a different channel on the Bluetooth headphones, each following one of three Fit Academy trainers. What does that mean? Essentially, there will be three — totally silent — workouts all happening in one room at the same time. Sounds insane, right? Well that, my friends, is the beauty of a silent boot camp.

Throughout the session, the three groups will rotate, so they’ll all get to experience the three unique styles of workouts. And afterwards, you’ll have the chance to take in more of the stunning views from the Observation Deck during an after party. A workout and a photo opp that’ll make you the Insta-envy of all? Sign. Us. Up.

Registration for the silent boot camp and after party on April 7 at 6 p.m. is $30 — which is pretty great, considering that it normally costs $14.50 just to visit the Observation Deck. Tickets are on sale now, and you can pick up yours here.

Correction: A previous version of this post stated that the class was on April 6, rather than on April 7, which is the correct date.
