This New Fitness Studio in Fairmount Offers Childcare While You Work Out
That sound you hear is all of Philly's moms and dads slow-clapping.
Busy moms and dads (so, all parents, basically) take heart: now you can get your fave workout class in — and have someone keeping an eye on your kid while you do your reps. Yep: On December 7th, new boutique studio J’aime Fitness , founded by Jaime and Jimmy Sutton, opens in Fairmount with on-site childcare available.
Their action-packed schedule will feature 45 classes per week, including 30- and 50-minute boot camp, barre, TRX, core, strength and conditioning, stretch and alignment, and movement-based dance classes. And childcare coincides with the class schedule — you simply register your kiddo (they accept ages 3 months to 10 years) the same way you sign up for a class. Then, drop them off downstairs, and stroll up to get your sweat on, worry-free. Oh, and did we mention there will even be opportunities to exercise with the kids, too, like the Baby and Me classes they’ll be running? So there’s something for every type of parent.

This new, 3,500 square-foot group fitness studio (2101 Brandywine Street) is actually the local brand’s second location, but the first to offer classes. Their first, on 23rd and Parrish, specializes in personal training and nutritional counseling. Jaime Sutton says the impulse to create a J’aime studio with popular boutique fitness classes stemmed from a community need for more group fitness offerings in Fairmount — and knowing the importance of childcare offerings came from being parents themselves.
“A lot of our Fairmount clients are hoofing it over to Center City for group classes, which can be pretty draining after a long day of work or if you have kids,” says Sutton, “We wanted to give them an opportunity to connect and come together for a killer workout in their own neighborhood.”
Before the second location officially opens on December 7th, they’re hosting an open house from 11 a.m. through 2 p.m. next Saturday, November 23rd, so you can check out the space for yourself. And don’t forget to mark your calendars for January 4th, when they throw a huge grand opening party featuring a full-day of free (!) classes. Already an existing client of J’aime’s personal training studio? You’ll get your first month free at the group fitness location.
Childcare pricing is $25 a month for one child, $35 for two, and $45 for three, and you must be an unlimited or J’aime member to apply for childcare. You can review their variety of membership packages (and become a founding member of the studio) here. Happy stress-free workout days, parents! (And happy playtime, kids!)
