On July 20, Philly gyms are allowed to reopen. You must wear a mask, practice social distancing, and classes are limited to 10 people or fewer.

Public Health Commissioner Thomas Farley encourages gyms to hold outdoor classes when possible. And if you aren’t yet ready to return indoor sweat sessions, there are fortunately an array of fitness centers that are doing just that.

Whether you want to spin in a parking lot, do yoga in a grassy park, or move through a full-body workout from a city rooftop, here’s where you can partake in an outdoor class and what to expect.

Note: Due to limited class sizes, many require pre-registration. If it rains, you may be refunded, credited for a future class, or directed to a virtual version. Check with the gym to confirm.
