Free in Philly: Brave-inspired Change Your Fate Workout

If you’re seeking a creative new way to work out and transform your body, then look no further: Philadelphia Sports Clubs has created the Change Your Fate Workout, a tie-in with Disney/Pixar’s newest theatrical release, Brave (opening in select theaters June 22 in Disney Digital 3D).

The film—which features voice work by Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson and Craig Ferguson—centers on Merida, the headstrong daughter of Scotland’s King Fergus and Queen Elinor and a new kind of Disney Princess. When Merida defies an age-old custom in order to forge her own path in life, chaos ensues throughout the kingdom, and she must rely on her own bravery and archery skills to undo a beastly curse.

Taking inspiration from archery, swordsmanship and horseback riding—some of Merida’s favorite pastimes—Change Your Fate is a dance-based cardio and strength-training program. Led by Philadelphia Sports Clubs trainer Vivian Campos and set to empowering music, the class utilizes unique equipment—including a fitness bow and wooden sword—to help participants burn calories and tone muscle.

A special free class for members and non-members is set up for TOMORROW, Friday, June 22 at Society Hill Philadelphia Sports Clubs, 220-250 South 5th Street, beginning at 11:00 am (photographers, take advantage of this unique photo op—gym-goers will be performing choreographed, highly-visual routines). Additionally, Change Your Fate will be held Wednesdays at 6:30 pm at the Market Street club (1735 Market Street) through the end of June and throughout July.
