Now that it's finally getting warmer outside, I wanted to post some of the free workout options that the city has to offer. Just doing a quick Eventbrite search gives you tons of options for all types and all levels of workouts. As a reminder, I posted about this two years ago: Working Out On the Cheap .
Some new options for 2018 include:
Chicago Riverwalk Bootcamp: Sign Up on Eventbrite Here - This looks to be a new series of fitness classes that will happen along the Riverfront between Wells and LaSalle.
Fitbit is back with more Local free events: Sign up here - These range from yoga to boot camp type classes and are happening all across the city. Make sure to follow the FitBit Local Chicago chapter on Facebook for updates.
Athleta is back with more fitness classes: Sign Up on Eventbrite Here - These are my favorite classes because they offer a big variety. I've done yoga, barre, HIIT and surf-inspired classes in the past. They are great for all levels of fitness and the staff is really friendly and welcoming.
The W Summer Fit Boot Camp: Sign Up on Eventbrite Here : These classes are happening on Tuesday nights throughout the summer. It's a great way to squeeze in a workout during the week!
#SweatWorking: Sign Up on Eventbrite Here : Wanted to give a shoutout to Shauntrece who teaches this fun dance class every Saturday at the Ruth Page Center. If you're worried about keeping up with the dance, don't be. I've done this class several times and I have two left feet but Shauntrece makes it really fun.
Free Fitness Classes at Navy Pier: Sign Up on Eventbrite Here : These classes are on Tuesdays and Thursdays and offer a variety of classes as well.
Free Outdoor Workouts at Roosevelt Collection: Sign Up on Eventbrite Here : These classes are located at the Roosevelt Collection outdoor mall in the South Loop on the first Tuesday of every month.
Rooftop Yoga at Whole Foods: Sign Up on Eventbrite Here : This class is taught on Saturdays at the Whole Foods in Lincoln Park. I can tell you that this rooftop has an amazing view of the city!
Hope this list is helpful. Let me know what classes/events you plan to attend in the comments.
