Announcing The Michelob ULTRA #SweatworkingWeek Fitness Festival
  • May 17, 2018
  • At the end of a week of sweat, we’re inviting you to the Michelob ULTRA #SweatworkingWeek Fitness Festival June 9.

    We’re partnering with Michelob ULTRA – the brand that believes in thriving on a steady diet of friends, exercise, and occasionally laughing a little too hard – and it’s a match made in heaven.
    The Michelob ULTRA Fitness Festival is sure to be packed with fitness, pampering and all of the celebration you deserve after our fifth #SweatworkingWeek June 4-9 – a week like restaurant week for fitness.

    Here’s what you can expect: 

    It’s a full day of fitness in one venue at the end of our #SweatworkingWeek. In short, it’s super dope. We have a total of 10 classes running throughout the day in two studios. This time around, no matter which class you choose in either studio, you’ll get to try both classes running at any time slot – 30 minutes in one studio and 30 minutes in the other.

    The venue: Morgan’s on Fulton

    There are four levels at the venue and each level is its own special surprise happening with the help of Michelob ULTRA.
    1. Basement (fitness floor #1): We’ll pump up your fitness with an LED-lit fitness studio with DJ-driven experiences. This is where you’ll find heavy equipment and all the ways to work with it.
    2. Street level: You’ll find the Michelob ULTRA celebration lounge, you’ll also see snacks and drinks here. Expect to have a blast and live-a-little #balance.
    3. Second level: This recovery lounge will get you back on your feet and ready to roll into your next class. You can expect to see HyperIce products, NormaTec compression boots, pampering, facials, massage, braids, Delos Therapy and more.
    4. Rooftop terrace (fitness floor #2): This rooftop terrace in the heart of the Fulton Market has arguably the best view of the city from the West Loop. Our bodyweight, dance or light equipment classes will be hosted on the roof – also fueled by a DJ.

    Trista Greco spends her days in the Red Room at Barry’s Bootcamp, but she pulls #Inspo from all different styles of fitness. Whether she’s leading classes as a Nike Trainer, pulling from her lifetime of dance training or making you pulse (and pulse and pulse), your muscles won’t know what hit them. She’ll hit you with a mostly bodyweight class that will take you from the mat to burpees to swearing at her under your breath. You’ll spend your first 30 minutes with Trista and your final 30 with Paul.

    If you’ve ever taken a class with Glenn at FlyBarre you know that he may dress up like a president/leprechaun/cupid/character from your favorite movie, but you’ll only chuckle for the first 30 seconds when you realize that his class MEANS BUSINESS. In this special FlyBarre class away from the studio, he’ll create a butts and guts workout (and he might just have a very special outfit planned). Expect to move your muscles until you reach full burn-out. You’ll spend your first 30 minutes with Glenn and your final 30 with Mel.

    2:15 pm: Mel Safford brings you Body Worship – an empowering dance workout

    BODY WORSHIP is a sweaty, sexy, body-positive cardio dance experience. We take moves straight from the hottest videos and biggest dance floors and incorporate them into fun, fat burning cardio-dance routines set to an epic playlist. The format is lead-and-follow choreography on the verse and chorus and then repeating throughout. Come for the beats, stay for the sweat, #BYOBooty. You’ll spend your first 30 minutes with Mel and your final 30 with Glenn.

This class will represent their ethos, but Bret and Jason reserve the right to make you face your fears, sweat, look within or find your breath. You’ll spend 30 minutes on the roof with Bret and Jason and 30 minutes with Dan in the basement.
