Don't let this "official end of summer" nonsense deceive you into thinking it's time to slack on exercise, letting your hard-earned Shore bod get droopy before the first snow. To rev up your fall workout motivators, I've compiled a roundup of gay-centric, post-summer fitness events that'll keep you taut as a tit through spring.
Fusion owner and gay fitness coach Gavin McKay wants to get your ass in gear with this cross-training class that's built around "all three elements of fitness": cardio, strength training and yoga. The 10-week course includes body/age fitness assessments, strict food journaling and mandatory outdoor workouts at the ass-crack of dawn. Weenies need not apply.
Strongly recommending "flamboyant exercise attire," it doesn't get much gayer than this. Fronted by buoyant dancer/choreographer/friend of CP Craig Scull (pictured), the weekly routine incorporates moves inspired by current music vids, strip aerobics and Broadway. You don't need dance experience to sign up, just come ready to boogie down and "let your inner diva breathe."

If you've got the balls, Living Soulfully Philly's men-only nude yoga class lets you work on your warrior poses and sun salutations "without the restriction of clothing." The sessions, led by certified yoga instructor Bob Pileggi, are based on Hatha yoga and vinyasa flow, with an emphasis on pranayama (conscious breathing). And just so we're clear, the experience is not meant to "create a sexual venue or to foster erotic energy." So don't come looking for sexy time.
