Stretch, Kick and Sweat in the Park

Sometimes You Just Need to Sweat With 200 of Your Closest Friends


When running alone along the lakefront trail gets boring, you may need to a few friends to help get you motivated. Pop down to the Great Lawn in Millennium Park every Wednesday and Saturday through early September for a variety of free workout classes led by fitness experts.

Roll out your yoga mat Wednesday mornings from 7:30AM to 8:15AM for a series of sun salutations, down dogs and warrior poses. Saturday programming starts at 7AM, and offers up four back-to-back 45-minute classes of tai chi, yoga with music, Pilates and Zumba with drumming, respectively. Can you think of a better backdrop or setting than the skyline to motivate you?
