Free Health & Wellness Programming at the Navy Yard in 2023
Free and open-to-the-public fitness classes are coming back to the Navy Yard in 2023! At the Navy Yard, we strive to promote physical and spiritual wellbeing to employees of the Navy Yard and the surrounding communities.
This year we will be expanding our health and wellness programming by partnering with Alchemy X to bring a variety of classes every Tuesday and Wednesday from 5:30-6:30 p.m. beginning Tuesday May 2 to League Island Park at the Navy Yard (1101 Kitty Hawk Ave).
Alchemy X, whose main location is in the West Passyunk neighborhood of South Philadelphia, is a boutique fitness, health, and wellness studio that focuses on movement, nourishment, collaboration, and growth. Alchemy X offers fitness & wellness classes, a juice bar for nourishment, community fitness partnerships, coaching, and collaborative events. Alchemy X thrives on the growth mindset of their clients which they consider friends.
“It takes a village, but together we are willing and able to offer a wide range of tools and modalities at Alchemy X for a strong, healthy, balanced lifestyle and a safe experience to gain knowledge and support for individual growth through community means everything to me as the owner/creator of Alchemy X, I am so grateful for the opportunities to serve,” said DaraMarie Adams.
Schedule and Registering for Classes
We will post the upcoming fitness schedule to navyyard.org/events and our social media channels.

We encourage each participant to BYOM (bring your own mat) and 10-15 minutes before the class is scheduled to begin and to be ready to transform into a powerful mind-body connection class, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated after completion.
About League Island Park
You probably know League Island Park as the home to Alpha Sacred Beings (The Origin of Creation) the Navy Yard’s first permanent public art display, which is a life-sized monument symbolizing a bridge between two Indigenous Nations by artist Marianela Fuentes. The beaded design was created in partnership with artists from the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Tribal Nation. The designs were created on a life-sized Parasaurolophus dinosaur skeleton, which once walked the land in both the Delaware Valley and Mexico.
The 2.5-acre park on the 1200-acre Navy Yard campus was designed by Wells Appel and KS Engineers. The name of the park references the original island on the Delaware River that was connected to South Philadelphia in the late 1800s. The park includes innovative stormwater management features made possible through a partnership with the Philadelphia Water Department.
