Philadelphia often conjures images of our Founding Fathers, cheese-and-meat-loaded sandwiches, and overzealous sports enthusiasts. But, hidden among the cheesesteak joints and hardcore Eagles fans, is a fit Philadelphia ready to get you off your feet.
Lace up your walking shoes and take off on a self-guided tour of Philly’s most historic spots. Channel Benjamin Franklin’s good sense and swing by Totem Brand—this store sells USA-made men’s clothing and accessories that’ll get you looking sharp for a night out on the town. When you’re suited up in Philly’s finest threads, pull up a chair at Tulala’s Garden, a eatery with a seasonal menu inspired by local growers. Philadelphia never misses a beat, and neither should you with your training! Step it up at CrossFit Center City—right in the heart of the City of Brotherly Love. Looking for a more relaxed workout? Dip your paddles in the Schuykill River and get a gorgeous view of this stellar city from the comfort of a rented kayak.

A trip to Northern California’s Wine Country isn’t all swirling, sniffing, and sipping wine. Look past your Merlot-filled wine glass to see a wealth of healthy, green and fun activities in Napa and Sonoma Counties. Kick off your tour with a stop at Ehlers Estate, which has been cultivating grapes since 1886 and pouring certified organic wine since 2008. Resist the temptation to fill up on handcrafted chocolates at Ehlers Estate, because you’re headed to Oenotri Restaurant in Napa for dinner. This Italian eatery embodies the farm-to-table ethos—Oenotri sources ingredients from local growers and even has its own garden on site. Learn to prepare farm-fresh food at Long Meadow Ranch’s Kitchen Workshop series. Get your hands dirty in the garden with local educators, then head to the kitchen where chefs guide you through preparing mouth-watering masterpieces.
But enough with the food! Put down the cheese platter and head out into the fresh air with Velo Vino cycling tours. Peddle your way through scenic Napa Valley before ending your bicycle tour with a wine and food pairing at Clif Family Winery. And don’t miss a step in your training at Wine Country CrossFit in Napa—just one of more than a half dozen CrossFit affiliate gyms dotting Wine Country. Now, we can raise a glass to that. Cheers!
