Fit and Fancy: Philadelphia’s High-End Health Clubs

We love sharing our favorite eats with you, but we'd be remiss to not mention our favorite gyms and fitness clubs as well. For rain and snow, humid summers, strength training or other specialties, try one of these locations and make exercise something to look forward to. 

The Sporting Club at the Bellevue

Looking for a squash team? A boxing arena, swimming pool, basketball court, zumba class and steam room? Looking to swim laps before work, meditate after a bad day or get in an intense cardio workout while learning hip hop? The Sporting Club at the Bellevue offers a full variety of activities, classes and equipment at the highest level of quality and sophistication. Members can opt for private, executive locker rooms, indulge in the on-site spa and try their hand at TRX suspension training.  


The PrivatGym by BONES Fitness Partners is exactly what it sounds like, an exclusively one-on-one, membership-free gym that is totally dedicated to personal fitness training. Whether you're training for an event, rehabilitating an injury, looking at pre-natal fitness training or are ready to dedicate yourself to a personal fitness program, BONES trainers have the degrees and certifications to improve your health and well-being, and they're not shy about guaranteeing results. 

CKO Kickboxing Center City

There's not a lot you can't find near Rittenhouse Square, including CKO KIckboxing Center City. Popular, fun and a great stress reliever, it's hard to go wrong when it comes to beating up on a heavy bag while improving your balance, stamina and endurance, flexibility and hand-eye coordination. With a number of exciting instructors and varied class times, you'll never be bored at CKO Kickboxing. 

Amrita Yoga & Wellness

It'll take you a mile or so up the Delaware River from Center City, but Amrita Yoga & Wellness's beautiful facilities, dedicated trainers, unique classes and high standards regarding cell phone use and latecomers make it one of Philadelphia's best yoga studios for beginners or longtime enthusiasts. Amrita also offers highly regarded retreats and intensive training for those wishing to delve deeper into the art or to become yoga trainers themselves.
