Get Fit for Free
If you’re heading toward Armitage avenue in Lincoln Park, chances are, you’re not going there with a workout in mind. No, if you’re like us, you’re going for the burgers (http://www.yelp.com/biz/butcher-and-the-burger-chicago), the free samples at Lush (http://www.yelp.com/biz/lush-chicago), or the mouth-watering donuts (http://www.yelp.com/biz/glazed-and-infused-doughnuts-chicago-3). Not exactly the healthiest of outings. Until now. Yep, that’s right, Lincoln Park is about to get fit.
Armitage Ave. is now home to a one-of-a-kind, Nike training club (https://www.facebook.com/NtcLincolnPark ). We went to check out the opening on Tuesday night, and we can’t stop talking about how amazing it is.
In addition to selling the latest and greatest fitness gear, the club offers free classes to anyone who RSVPs. Try an afternoon barre or yoga class, or hit the road with a group of ladies for a Nike Run Club sesh (bonus: if you log your miles with Nike+, you’re eligible for some sweet rewards). They also offer classic NTC classes that cater to every level of fitness and whip you into shape with a combo of cardio and core training. Feel the burn!
And of course you can celebrate your post-workout glow with a trip down Armitage for a little reward. Just save the doughnuts for a cheat day.
