Since swimsuit season is rapidly upon us, enter below to win a free ride at Flywheel in Old Town to start getting into shape. If you have never tried Flywheel, an indoor cycling studio, now is your time. It really is a full body work out that will make you sweat, but it’s infused with music and some arm weights that you almost forget about all that sweat. Your body will definitely thank you for the ride. As a bonus, Gilt City is offering a great deal now until May 12th for new riders; only $89 for 5 rides (can be used at the Old Town or Gold Coast locations). You seriously can’t beat that deal!

flywheelflywheelflywheelflywheelThis is a PSA announcement, if you haven’t tried Flywheel yet, you’re missing out. Flywheel, cycling, is such an intense workout and yes, you may say some phrases that you might regret saying or didn’t know were in your vocabulary, but after a class, you’ll feel amazing. Although, I like running and attempting yoga, I like how Flywheel really challenges you. The instructors are also very engaging and really make you push yourself to limits you didn’t think were possible. Also, the infamous torq board makes you want to achieve your goal speed.

Plus, I love how Flywheel is indoors, especially now that it’s getting super cold. If you’re in Chicago, there are two locations in the Gold Coast and in Old Town. They also have other locations across the nation and even in Dubai! Signing up is easy on their website and if you would like to try it out first, enter the giveaway below.

classpassclasspassclasspassClassPass is probably the greatest thing to happen to fitness in Chicago (and other select cities). How it works is you sign up for $99 a month and then you can attend as many classes as you like, 3 maximum at each studio. This way, you can try lots of different classes throughout the city and not get “stuck” with a gym membership.

I tried my first Flywheel cycling class a few weeks ago with these lovely ladies (Shaheen, Jill and Samantha) above and lets just say I’m glad I can finally feel my legs. It was such an intense class, but I’m glad I survived and lived to tell about it. I also took a Dailey Method class and again, muscles that I never knew existed were definitely in overdrive. I’ve signed up to take an Air, so let’s see if I can make it through that class.
