The fit biz is certainly booming in Manayunk: at last count, there were 18 (!!) fitness-related businesses in the ‘hood, from personal trainers to yoga studios to indoor cycling and rowing outfits and more. So, the powers-that-be decided to round them all up for an awesome, massive Fit Fest on June 1st, kicking off a brand-new festival called Fitness Week. Which, you know, is right up our alley here at Be Well.
Fit Fest will include free outdoor fitness classes with instructors from area studios—The Wall Cycling Studio, Merge Dance Studio, Bikram Yoga Manayunk and more—as well as vendor booths, free health consultations and the “Walk the Wall” fundraiser. During Fitness Week, you can buy a $25 punch card valid for a free class at 12 local fitness studio. The idea is to give you the opportunity to try out lots of different classes for one flat rate. (And by the way, ladies, you can think of it as a warmup for Be Well Boot Camp on June 8th, okay?)
Fit Fest will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 1st. Manayunk Fitness Week runs from June 2nd through 7th. More info, including a link to purchase the punch card, is here.
