FYI Philly: Spring Into Shape

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

This week on FYI Philly, it's time to Spring into Shape with our annual fitness special. We have new high-intensity workouts like incline running or next-level athletic training from Level 40 Fitness. And there are recovery sessions like yupping (that's really what it's called). Then we hit the water with a historic club that takes you to the river to train and a brand new pool workout in Center City. Plus, DIY drills you can add at home and a roundup of spas to decompress after all that hard work. Here are the details on all the guests featured this week (Saturday at 7 p.m.):
