If you’ve ever just wanted to let it all go and try something new, AIR Aerial Fitness may be the perfect place for you to visit. On February 13, twenty Chicago Yelpers put on their brave faces and tried an aerial fitness class at the business’s location at 357 W Erie Street in the River North neighborhood.

Starting at 6:45pm, Yelpers began to show up, ready to pick the best spot in the room to start getting sweaty. The class instructor, Bobby, took care to help each guest find their perfect hammock, and once everyone arrived, he started to show the class some basic moves to prepare them for what was to come.

The class was tiring, yet rewarding. While many Yelpers arrived believing the class would be a breeze and that everyone would be flying through the air easily by 8:15pm, pretty much everyone was hit with the reality that while this fitness class is fun, it is a lot of work! But who doesn’t like a good sweat, right?

After class ended, Yelpers were given free rein of the aerial fitness studio to take photos of themselves practicing their new poses, with the help of instructor Bobby and AIR CEO Hannah. Check out some of their fantastic photos on the event page!

Once everyone started cooling down, they began to spill back into the lobby where they checked in, but this time there were bites waiting for them from Roti Modern Mediterranean. A gorgeous hummus spread was provided by the Mediterranean restaurant, with treats like different hummus flavors, flavorful pita chips, a delightful array of veggies, and warm bread. They were also given goodie bags provided by Yelp, featuring sample treats from Vital Proteins as an extra bonus!

So, what did everyone learn? That they’re basically invincible… or least they can do anything they put their mind to! Most Yelpers were nervous upon entering the room filled with hammocks and mirrors, but by the end of the night, every single person was glad they participated and believed in themselves. Thanks to AIR Aerial Fitness, we all had a night to remember and were able to learn a few new things about ourselves!
