It's tougher than it sounds and has garnered quite a following with those who are looking for a unique workout with schedule-friendly classes on weekends and evenings. Boggi maintains a blog called Fit Hip Healthy and her instructors frequently contribute. Each class is a full body workout, but specially targets certain body parts, with names like Waspie, Skinny Jeans, or High Mini. Sign up for an Immersion Class today and take advantage of the New Client Intro - 3 classes for $45. You can drop into a class whenever you want, whether you're sweating a fun, relaxing session in Rittenhouse or at the Liberties Walk location.

Do you remember what the current parking garages at the Philadelphia International Airport look like?
No, why would you? It's the same bland structure you'd find at most airports. How Philly Moves, a project from the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, aims to change that. They want to add 50,000 square feet of photographic work from West Philly artist Jacques-Jean “JJ” Tiziou to the garage. This would liven up the scene for over 32 million national and international travelers that pass by each year. For the half-mile-long stretch, Tiziou will choose images of dancing figures. He has photographed over 70 subjects so far, from amateur to professional, and will shoot another 60 dancers next month at the Painted Bride Art Center. Do you like to dance? Submit an application for your chance to be a part of the final design.
So how does Philadelphia move? Quite differently. From one neighborhood to the next, we find wide varieties of dancing. In Fishtown, we have the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School, then we have the West African dance and drumming clubs in West Philadelphia. There's the Indigenous Pitch Dance Collective who combine many homegrown styles of dance, and the Kun Yang Lin dance company in South Philly, that bring Eastern Asian influence to Western contemporary dance style. We have hoop dancers and burlesque troupes, crowds of swaying bodies at dance parties, and the movement in the streets during rush hour. We know that Tiziou will capture some of this and make coming home from the airport a better experience.
