Summer in Chicago is the most magical time of year (at least it is for me!) People are so excited to be outside again after the long winter, the city is full of energy, and everyone’s mood seems to improve exponentially. While the air conditioning and Netflix may sound tempting when the temps start to rise, the summer is a great time to get outside and MOVE! Here are some of my favorite ways to stay active in Chicago during the Summer:

  • Practice yoga outside
  • Run along the lakefront (Running on the sand adds an extra difficult element)
  • Take a walk on the beach
  • Bike around the city
  • Run The 606 Trail
  • Take a stroll on the Riverwalk (did you know its 3.4 miles?) 
  • Walk to your favorite smoothie place
  • Sign up for free fitness classes at Millennium Park
  • Sign up for free fitness classes at Navy Pier
  • Sign up for free fitness classes at the Lincoln Park Zoo
  • Walk around a museum
  • Go to a fitness festival
  • Explore the city by foot
  • Walk to your destination instead of taking a cab
  • Kayak the Chicago river
  • Go Swimming in lake Michigan
  • Try paddle boarding or stand up paddle board yoga (SUP Yoga)
  • Play beach volleyball on North Ave
  • Rollerblade down the Riverwalk or along the lake
  • Jump rope on the sidewalk
  • Take your dog for a long walk
  • Go rock climbing
  • Dance all day at a music festival
  • Play sports with your friends
  • Sign up for an obstacle course
  • Sign up for a marathon or half marathon
  • Try a new class at one of the MANY boutique fitness studios across the city
  • Go to an amusement park (you’d be surprised how many steps you take!)
  • Sign up for a “Yoga in the Park” class
  • Walk around a local farmers market or street fair (and support local businesses)
  • Download a workout app (or find one on YouTube) and workout at a park
  • Come take my class at CPY West Loop!
