Not only can you find our magazine in print and online, but we now are revving up our social media accounts to stay up to date and active with our followers in between issues.

Recently on our Instagram we ran a contest asking followers to tag us in an image of their favorite "PhillyFIT Activity" for a chance to win free entry to a Spartan Race (value $100). We had so many awesome images sent to us. It was hard to choose but we narrowed it down to Alex who ended up giving his entry to his 8 year old son. After the race Alex sent us some really cool images of his family participating in the Spartan Race together. We loved them so much that we decided to chose them as our PhillyFIT Feature Family!

We wanted to learn more about this awesome family so we did a little Q&A with them! The following is a fun interview we did with Alex (45), Amanda (40), Jack (8), and Madison (11) from Royersford, Pennsylvania....
