A few local fitness instructors that I personally know and have used at one time or another are hosting virtual work outs, many in a “pay as you can” format. While youtube can be great, these are local instructors that need your support if you’re able to lend it. I’ll update this as I find new local instructors offering classes.
Nick Turk– Nick is my favorite SoulCycle instructor and he is hosting workouts three times a day, increasingly working with other local organizations and businesses. It’s pay as you can (via venmo), and he keeps them on his feed for a bit after the live instruction is over.
Fuel Cycle Fitness – Based in Ardmore, Jen’s studio does cycle and boxing classes. She’s also very active in the community, hosting classes and seminars to help teen girls build self esteem. She’s hosting and saving boxing classes and other workouts that you can do from home with no extra equipment. These are pay as you are able via venmo.
Performance Fitness – Michelle and Brett are hosting workouts via Zoom. DM the owner, Michelle, via Facebook and she will give you the links. I believe they are offering a few for free, and then an “online membership” after the first few. Their classes are great and the community is inclusive and supportive. Her studio is located in Wynnewood near the Penn Wynne Library. Contact her for more specific details on joining the classes and payment options.
Rumble Boxing – While this is a chain, there is a location in Rittenhouse. Having taken a few of these classes in the studio, I can safely say these are intense classes in studio. I cannot attest to what the trainers are doing at home, but they are offering live instagram workouts. The schedule is posted on their page.
Alluem Yoga – not hyper local (North Jersey), but very diverse offerings. My six year old has been loving the nightly kids meditation classes. Kid, tween, adult, and beginner yoga and meditation classes. Some are pay as you can and others pay per class. Karen is a relaxing presence. More info on Instagram, and sign up via the Mind Body app.
