SOCIAL, GROUP WORKOUT
When the weather heats up, it’s easy to forgo your typical after-work cycling class in favor of happy hour. And let’s face it — it’s hard for CrossFit to compete with al fresco dining. City Fitness, always up for a challenge, has concocted a series of top secret—and what they’re calling “over-the-top”—sweat sessions to shake-up your spring and summer while making you actually want to workout.
Best of all? They’re keeping us all on our toes by keeping the scoop secret until two days before each weekly workout!
If the popularity of Dîner en Blanc and the PHS Beer Gardens are any indication, Philly loves a pop-up, and who doesn’t appreciate a bit of mystery? But if you need at least a few details before you’re on board with hometown gym community City Fitness’s Top Secret Tuesdays, here’s what we’ve got:
For the next 10 Tuesdays, starting April 30 and running through July 2, City Fitness is going to host some off-the-wall surprise workouts at popular hot spot East Market. There will be limited (but totally free!) spots to join in the fun, and they’ll go live the Sunday night prior at 8pm. So, set your alarms for Sunday nights because these workouts are going to be wacky, wild, and (in some cases) wet.
Yes, City Fitness is a big-box gym, but they’ve really made a point of separating themselves from the other full-service gyms in the city, from Silent Disco-style workouts at concert venues to Bagel Booty Camps with celebrity trainers in Fishtown. With their track record, you know these Top Secret Tuesdays are gonna be next level.
Though we won’t ruin all the surprises, there are whispers of body paint and black lights, water balloon fights, live DJs, outdoor activities, and some four-legged friends joining the mix. Basically, you won’t wanna miss a single one, so before your Game of Thrones watch parties, flex your fingers with a little Sunday night sign-up.
To get in on the fun, keep your Tuesdays free, follow City Fitness on Instagram (and maybe think about turning on your post notifications), and cross your fingers for a spot in this secret, sweaty society. See you Tuesday nights!
