For Gym Bunnies (and Beasts)

Yeah, I like to call the girls who go to the gym, wear their hair down, and strut instead of working out “gym bunnies.” I think it’s funny. If you really go to work out, and sweat, you should know that a new branch of Sweat is opening on March 1 in Old City (43 N. 3rd St.). I got a sneak preview today. It’s beautiful! I went to check out the classroom, so I would know whether or not I wanted to take a yoga class. (Not too much thumping, bumping music and a nice-sized classroom are what I require, plus a good instructor.) I was impressed by the large size of the classroom, on the upper floor in the back of the building. Upstairs were also the cardio machines, with lots of elliptical runner machines (I think that’s what they’re called) and lots of treadmills. I think all of them had their own TV’s, if that is your thing. Downstairs were all the muscle machines, which I don’t know much about, but it all looked brand spankin’ new to me. Mirrors, hardwood floors – looked good! And my guide told me they’ll have a shop, a chiropractic person, I think he said massage, a salon, and other stuff! This marks the fifth location for Sweat, with others in Manayunk, Center City, Queen Village, and Fitler Square. They’ll have another in South Philly, opening early summer. I like Sweat because it is a nice, middle-ground type of place. Not too macho, not too loud, and nice and clean, with good instructors. Sweat!
