A Cheesy Philly Workout + Happy Hour

Did you know that the owners of RippedPHL and Philly Dance Fitness both grew up in the same city in Wisconsin, attended the same schools and graduated high school the same year? And they both just so happened to open fitness businesses in the great city of Philadelphia! In honor of this bizarrely awesome coincidence, Deborah Hirsch & Katie Downing Costelas are teaming up for an outdoor fitness party. Cycle through rounds of weight-training and cardio dance led by FOUR instructors, then celebrate your hard work with some treats imported from the dairy state.

  • Thursday, March 25, 2021 from 4:30-6 p.m. (Rain date: March 26) 
  • 17th & Carpenter Streets (Circuits will be set up at Carpenter Green and the patio at L’Anima)
  • $18 tix includes light refreshments.
Bonus: In honor of this event, L'Anima restaurant is creating a $30 three-course prix fixe menu featuring a flatbread pizza with Wisconsin cheese. Follow up your workout and happy hour with dinner and you'll be supporting three neighborhood businesses in one night!
