A few months ago we told you we were creating a strength training program that you can follow from anywhere, at your own pace, and with support from other women in the City Fit Girls community. We're excited to announce that City Fit Girls Strength Club, our subscription-based online community, will be available at the end of this month!Read More
This past summer, I decided that I was ready to take control of my running again and train for the Philly Half Marathon (my first since Feb 2016). If I was serious, I knew that I would have to make drastic changes to my routine. I had to train the way that I would instruct my clients to by mixing up my runs, incorporating more strength training and following a stretching routine.Read More
If you’ve ever followed along a distance running plan, you’ve probably come across the terms “cross-training” or “strength-training” on your schedule. Sadly, if you’re like most of the runners I know, you either skip those workouts or opt for a friendly yoga or spin class. Now before you spit out your coffee, I’m not saying yoga and spin are bad (I enjoy doing both workouts!). What I’m saying is that if you want to reduce your chance of injury and become a stronger runner, your cross-training should also include at least one or two days of weight training.Read More
Disclaimer: I attended Wanderlust 108 on behalf of Swisse USA (you’ll learn more about them below!)
My first experience at Wanderlust 108 was amazing! New to Wanderlust 108? It’s a day-long ‘mindful triathlon’ where attendees complete a 5K, yoga, and guided meditation (three of my favorite activities) in the same day. I was invited by our friends at Swisse Wellness, Australia’s number one vitamin and supplement company, to attend Wanderlust 108 and the Swisse Discover Happiness Experience. If you’re considering attending Wanderlust 108 in the future or you’re just interested in how it went, continue reading below for my full recap.Read More
This post was originally featured in City Fit Girls newsletter #147 for the week of September 24, 2018. We know you've read the articles, browsed the books, and maybe even listened to podcasts about how running and physical activity can improve your mental health.Read More
This past weekend, we kicked off City Fit Girls Streak with a 9ish mile bike ride in Philadelphia. Like our group runs, our rides are welcoming to cyclists of all fitness levels.
We started at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and made our way down Martin Luther King Drive to take advantage of the Sunday morning car-free roads.Read More
In no particular order, we compiled a list of 31 outdoor activities that count toward City Fit Girls' streak! Whether you can do 5 or all 31 activities, this will be the perfect time to switch up your gym routine and soak up some sunshine.Read More
Summer is officially here and it's that time of year! No, we're not talking about chilling out on the beach (although you should do that too), we're talking about City Fit Girls Streak! We're challenging the women in our community to 31 days of physical activity throughout the month of July. Are you in?Read More
We were excited to host (2) private sessions at Focus Barre & Yoga in Rittenhouse for a few reasons. First, we hosted a private session with them FOUR years ago when they first opened their doors. It's amazing to see how much they've grown. Second, Jill and her team are absolutely amazing.
They were very welcoming, kind, and supportive. All the traits you need when considering joining any studio. Lastly, the workouts are unique (and tough). You will feel like you've accomplished all there is to accomplish after just one session in this studio.Read More
If you haven't tried BPM Fitness yet, you are missing out. They have created a very unique workout experience unlike anything I've seen in the Philadelphia area. When I first tried the studio a few weeks ago, I joined without any hesitation. I felt strong, empowered, and like a total badass. When the opportunity came up for City Fit Girls to host two private workouts, we jumped on it right away.Read More
It's been a while since we had our last indoor cycling class so we were very excited to partner with our friends at Flywheel to host a private (after hours) workout for City Fit Girls! If you've never taken an indoor cycling (sometimes referred to as spin) class, be sure to read this recap!Read More
We've been making our way around Philadelphia connecting the City Fit Girls community with workouts, gyms and studios. This past weekend, we teamed up with our friends at City Fitness to bring you two back-to-back workouts.Read More
