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.
