Kick off your weekend with an energizing workout on the Great Lawn of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park, Saturday mornings from June 9 through September 1. Supported by McDonald’s® and presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, these free workout sessions will be held from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Workouts are 45 minutes long with classes in Tai Chi at 7 a.m., Yoga at 8 a.m., Pilates at 9 a.m. and Zumba®, a Latin-inspired calorie-burning dance fitness party, beginning at 10 a.m. Returning this year, there will be live music played over Millennium Park’s state-of-the-art sound system for the yoga and pilates classes.
