What Can You Control?


At times it feels like we are living in alternate 1985 from Back to the Future II (if you didn’t get that reference, you now have your weekend Netflix plans). But before we cast away all hope for a better year, now might be a good time to separate things into two categories: those you [...]

Stronger Than Yesterday


The weather in Philadelphia has been exceptional, which is just so typically May, so it’s no coincidence that last Saturday saw the return of our outdoor parking lot workouts! We kicked things off with a socially distanced #FreeBritney WOD in the IKEA parking lot in South Philly. Around 35 members from both Fearless locations, [...]

April 2021



As much as we love seeing you all at the gym every day, this is your reminder to get outside and use your hard-earned fitness! It’s easy to default to a daily routine (read more about how routines are a good thing!), but it is finally the time of year when the weather is [...]

Win The Morning, Win The Day!


The all-too familiar sound of your morning alarm. Followed by the all-too familiar reach for the snooze button. “I’m working from home, why not log a few extra minutes of sleep, my body clearly needs it,” right? Believe it or not, our bodies and minds actually crave routine. It makes us feel calm and [...]

Why We Compete


If you’ve been to class recently, you’ve probably heard something about the Festivus Games (psst, Fearless is hosting April 24!). A competition for “the rest of us,” this three-person team event is open to everyone, and there’s even a virtual option! Have you signed up yet? If you’re on the fence—or completely off the [...]

Your Crash Course to IIFYM


Have you ever found yourself scrolling social media or fitness websites and wondering what IIFYM means? Or maybe you know it means “if it fits your macros” ... but you aren’t really sure what macros actually are. Consider this your overly simplified crash course.   Macros - short for macronutrients—are the three groups or [...]

Baby, It’s Cold Outside


It’s that time of year again: Snow. Ice. Sleet. Slippery sidewalks, a frigid pull-up bar, and cold barbells. We’re in the thick of winter, and while many of us are still determined to make it to the gym, you might have noticed your body is operating at a slightly slower pace than your mind. [...]
