Bored of your normal workout? You have 2 days to check out this outdoor "my city my gym"

/With cooler months upon us it can be hard to find new and exciting ways to exercise outdoors.  In addition, there's many races coming up such as Men's Health Urbanathlon that test your skills on the outdoor city scape.  Gillette has created an outdoor gym made up of elements from our city such as, scaffolding chin ups, tire runs and box jumps.  So if you're looking for a unique way to switch up your routine for the next few days, or if you're already signed up for the Urbanathlon take advantage of this "my city my gym" for your next workout.  Don't be nervous, trainers will be on hand to help you out with any questions or exercises you'd like guidance with.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend the kick off yesterday, but I do have some great pics for you to check out.  Chicago Blackhawk's player Patrick Sharp was on site to open the gym to the city.  Let me know if you end up checking it out!
