After a long, cold winter of sitting indoors and sipping on local micro-brews, the Yelp Chicago Elite Squad was itching for a reason to get up and at ‘em! Luckily for all involved, the LakeShore Athletic Club provided lots of reasons! On a sunny Sunday, over 225 invited guests came out to be a part of Yelp Gets Hot! While the rest of the country slept, the Loverboys (and girls) of the Chicago Elite Squad were working (out) ON the weekend — and have the beach bodies to prove it!
And, just what is there to do in a multi-story downtown health club? Well, as Chicago Elites can tell you, there: the largest rock wall in the Midwest to climb, spinning class to master, yoga class to Namaste, cardio dance class to boogie, a pool to swim, a whirlpool to soak, a sauna to detox, a steamroom to… steam, weights to lift, tracks to run, basketballs to dribble, bikes to peddle, ellipticals to maneuver, and much more. Just recapping the activities is enough to give someone a killer workout.
Thankfully, there were plenty of great eats and hydrating beverages to get our weekend warriors back on track. Tasty nibbles from Swirlz Cupcakes, Kind Bar Snacks, America’s Dog, Starfruit, and Specialtys Cafe & Bakery filled bellies and motivated our movers and shakers to keep moving and shaking. Luscious libations from Vitamin Water, Honest Tea, Monster Energy, and FRS Healthy Energy replenished lost electrolytes and refueled parched palates.
There was plenty of proof of all the fun. No, we didn’t take our cameras into the locker rooms, but they were everywhere else. The basketball court doubled as ActionBooth’s set and the stunt cam picked up plenty of hilariously "athletic" poses. Check them out here. The dynamic duo behind Bernard Costa photography snapped shots from every other perspective. Take a gander here and here to see them. Interested in reading what went on? Click here.
Ah-nuld’s got nothin’ on all of this,
