Feel like taking a dip in the pool, and get fit along the way? South Philly’s homegrown gym, Fitness Works 714 Reed St., has completely renovated its indoor, heated saltwater pool and it’s ready for your efforts to get in beach body shape.
The 15-meter pool on the gym’s underground level ranges in depth from 3 to 5 feet, and it’s kept about 83 degrees year round. A new technology uses salt water chlorine generation, so it’s less harsh on your eyes and hair than traditional pools.
The deck around the pool was recently resurfaced. Floats, noodles and kickboards are available for use, but make sure to bring a towel.
On Sunday, May 8 and Monday, May 9, you’ll have the chance to experience a South Philly community garden in a new way.
Renegade Company and Spirit Forward are bringing together theater and cocktails inspired by a famous painting. Hieronymus Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights” will serve as inspiration for the performance at the Southwark/Queen Village Community Garden at 311 Christian St.
The new businesses keep on rolling in at the Bok School. We’ve previously told you about everything from a preschool to a hair salon joining in on Lindsey Scannapieco’s renewal of this shuttered school, now the space is getting an even more diverse selection of businesses.
Warrior Boxing Gym has announced that they will move into this new location at the school at 1901 S. 9th St., just down the street from their current, and soon-to-be former, location at 1209 Mifflin St.
