NTC Chicago and GIVEAWAY!

Many of you know that I've been involved in the Nike Training Club (NTC) community in Chicago and led run club at NTC Lincoln Park. Well, I'm excited to tell you about the new transition from NTC LP to NTC Chicago. Nike is bringing free fitness and running events to everyone in Chicago and the grand opening of the new studio space at 673 N. Michigan (right next to the Niketown store) was last night! Here's some pics of the new space:

About 40 young women showed up for the opening and they had us write down our resolutions for 2014. This week in January is when everyone starts forgetting about their New Years Resolutions, so this was a good reminder. My resolution is to reach my Nike Fuel Band goal of 3000 at least six days a week. This is especially challenging for me because I work from home and need a reminder to move!

We then did an hour workout with some awesome NTC trainers and had a competition to see how many fuel points we could get. I got 1850 and came out in the top few! We each got a ticket to this Saturday's secret NTC event. I'm giving away my +1, more on that below!!

There's Jeana from FabFitChicago.com and I with our winning tickets and champagne to toast the grand opening!


To finish off NTC Week and the grand opening of NTC Chicago, there is a secret event on Saturday 1/25 that will involve getting fit and a party after. If it's anything like the WinterFit event last month, it will be a blast! And we might get some free Nike gear…

I'm giving away my plus one for my ticket to one of my readers!  The event is at 4:30 PM on Saturday, January 25th, in the south loop area. You must live in or be visiting Chicago this weekend to enter, transportation is not provided. Male and female (and everything in between) welcome.

To enter, use the Rafflecopter widget below. You must comment on this post as a minimum to enter. Tell me what your fitness goals are this year! Then you can follow NTC Chicago and me and tweet for extra entries! If the widget doesn't work for whatever reason, just say so in your comment below and I will manually enter you.

Contest ends Thursday at midnight and I will announce the winner on Friday morning! Good luck and I'm excited to have fun and get #NTCfit with the winner on Saturday!

    My goal is to get back into running and do the half again this year (maybe the full?), and also I want to feel like I'm in the best shape of my life :).

  6. I loved classes at NTC LP and I'm excited to check out this new, gorgeous space! P.S. I know Jeana too :) Looks like you ladies had fun!
