Group Fitness Studios – Free Classes
If you like to exercise, chances are you are probably already aware that group fitness classes have been on the rise in recent years in the Philadelphia Fitness scene. With so many new class studios popping up, from cycling and spin to barre, yoga and Zumba, boutique class studios have become incredibly popular. Unfortunately, many of these small class studios are also crowded, expensive, and can cost upwards of $40 per session (ouch).
The good news for you: For those of you who want a fitness challenge without the crowds and high costs, there are class studios inside all AFC Fitness locations. With over 90 classes per week, AFC has something for everyone! Plus, classes are included as part of an AFC Fitness membership.
Here are 6 group fitness classes at AFC Fitness that you can try with a Free Gym Trial.
CrossFit is a core strength & conditioning program that delivers fitness that is by design, broad, general, and inclusive. CrossFit is constantly varied, intense and functional. CrossFit can be scaled to all fitness levels from beginners to professional athletes. Additional fee applies.
Based on dance techniques, our Barre Workout class is designed to lengthen and sculpt your body. Using a ballet barre and light weights, you get a full workout set to an upbeat tempo. Designed for all levels, this class is perfect for you, no matter what your level of fitness experience is!
Body Sculpt is the basis for all studio classes. Here you will do a little of everything to work all of your body. A little cardio and a little toning makes up a great foundation for an exercise regiment.
Insanity can help build strength and tone your muscles all over your body. Various workouts within the Insanity program emphasize upper-body and lower-body-toning.

Work out in 3 to 5 minute blocks, and take breaks only long enough to prepare you to move again.
