Summer in the Windy City has arrived. After a brutally cold winter, it is finally time to trade in the parkas for swimsuits. With that said, it is also the season of rejuvenation and motivation.
What better way to get your rear in gear (literally) than outdoor workouts throughout the City. First up the Nike Training Club Summer Tour. It is time to get out of the indoor gyms and take advantage of the scenic neighborhoods of Chicago! Grab a workout buddy and challenge yourself weekly by attending the FREE group workout classes hosted by the NTC.
Whether you are training for the Chicago Marathon or wanting to shred off those remaining winter lbs, the Summer Tour is the perfect summer challenge customized for you! The six-week workout journey you will embark on takes place every Saturday morning at 10 am and will rotate throughout various neighborhoods of Chicago from Lincoln Park to West Loop.
Workouts are lead by an elite group Nike Trainers who are inspirational and passionate about helping you achieve your personal fitness goals as well as answering any training questions to help you get that beach bod ready! This opportunity allows you to explore the neighborhoods of Chicago while breaking a sweat to the hottest tunes provided for you by DJ Chess Hubbard, but chosen by YOU!
Runners have the opportunity to customize their very own workout playlist by tweeting at the DJ your favorite songs for that particular genre. NTC is also providing it’s athletes with a personal QR code that can be accessed on your smart phone to track progress and participation. The more workouts you attend, the better your chances of winning some Nike apparel and accessories!

More great outdoor workouts also include stand up paddle on North Avenue beach. Take your first class on a flat water day for best balance and results. Think of Stand Up Paddle fitness classes of a workout on a BOSU on the water. It takes a good deal of core control and posture to paddle your way to a slimmer belly. For more information check out ChicagoSUP.com for their fitness classes on the water with Chicago Athletic Clubs.
