Surfset At Moirai Health & Fitness
All the benefits of surfing minus the risk of wiping out. This class will help strengthen your core and push your flexibility, while challenging you to keep your balance on a stationary-but-wobbly board — it's harder than it looks! Kick off your slides when you arrive (this class is done barefoot), and get ready to paddle it out. This breathable, sweat-wicking bra will keep you dry while you catch waves.
Surfset At Moirai Health & Fitness, Riverwest Fitness Studio, 664 West Hubbard Street (between North Union and North Desplaines streets); 312-738-3334.
Breakfast At LYFE Kitchen
There’s not much we don’t love about this River North eatery. We’ve tried nearly everything on the menu and have yet to be disappointed by the savory, hearty, nutrient-packed dishes. Throw a sleek, black jumpsuit over your sports bra for an on-trend look, and then complete it with a cozy green parka, leopard clutch, neutral booties, and, if you're in a hurry, a black baseball cap to mask unruly post-gym tresses (this one features a moisture-absorbing interior sweatband). You'll have people wondering if you even went to work out at all.
LYFE Kitchen, 413 North Clark Street (at Hubbard Street); 312-836-5933.
Cardio & Strength Training at Shred415
This high-intensity class alternates between running and strength training in 5-, 10-, and 15-minute intervals. The goals? Improving endurance and, as the name aptly suggests, "shredding": sculpting a firmer, stronger physique. Let a slip-free sweatband hold your flyaway strands in place. And, opt for a loose tank with cutouts, so you can catch a breeze from a fan and stay cool as your heart rate skyrockets.
Shred415, 230 West Division Street (between Wells and Orleans streets); 312-291-8722.
Brunch At Old Town Pour House
Swap the workout capris for a casual-cool pair of harem sweatpants, and keep the tank in play under a floral bomber jacket. Then, toss your gear into a messenger bag before heading to Old Town Pour House for brunch. With nearly 100 beers on tap, it’s hard to resist ordering a brew-focused cocktail like the Beerlini (a sweet and refreshing blend of Scaldis Pêche Mel'-infused peach purée and Voveti Prosecco). But, we recommend splurging on the Churchill Bloody Mary. The house-made bloody mix is poured over Stoli Hot vodka and served with a Chesapeake Bay-seasoned rim plus a skewer loaded with a peppercorn steak medallion, Pepper Jack cheese, and cherry tomatoes. It's like a salad but in delicious drink form.
Old Town Pour House, 1419 North Wells Street (between Schiller Street and North Avenue); 312-477-2800.
Personal Training At On Your Mark
Expect a hardcore workout using just free weights, medicine balls, and lines painted on the floor. (Yes, you’ll be running between them — a lot.) This custom training session is tailored to your fitness goals, and you’ll leave with that exhausted-yet-exhilarated high. Save the infinity scarf for pre- and post-workout, and get down to business in breathable basics: running tights, a sports bra, tank, and sneaks.
On Your Mark Coaching & Training, 1101 West Monroe Street, Suite A (at South Aberdeen Street); 312-733-9300.
