Considering that it’s tough for those of us without kids to find time to fit in a workout, we can only imagine the struggle when you’re in charge of not just your own schedule, but your children’s as well. Thankfully, the duo behind Philly’s Fitness Alive are all too familiar with the time constraints on parents’ schedules, which is why their latest workout series comes with — wait for it — babysitting.

This isn’t the first time Fitness Alive’s co-founders, Holly Waters and Emily Leaman — both moms of toddlers — have been on the lookout for those with little ones at home. In March, they launched an early-risers running group — which meets at 5 a.m. — for the ladies who want to run before their kids wake up in the morning. 

Their new workout series will include an hour-long boot camp class in one studio room at Riva Health and Wellness.  A second studio next door will serve as a space for the kiddos to play, with experienced caretakers watching over them. 

The four-week-long series will run from October 18 to November 8, every Thursday morning at 9:30 a.m. Anyone can join the whole series for $80, while the drop-in price for a single class is $23, with an additional $7 for babysitting.

Want to save some cash on classes? Through October 7, you can use the discount code “earlybirdseries” to save you $10 on the entire series or use code “earlybirdsingle” to get a single class for $20.
