Over the past few months, we’ve brought you workshops that you requested in the surveys we sent by email. This month is no different. But on top of a nutrition workshop beyond the basics (which we’ll talk more about below), we’re also joining forces with Soho House Chicago for one afternoon only to get a sneak peak behind the Soho curtain for a workout on the gym level of the club.
More about Soho House Chicago’s gym & your workout
When you arrive at the gym level of the club – the only place where members can’t bring guests, and thus, the most coveted spot of the entire club to explore – the elevator doors will open to a gorgeous boxing ring. But take a look to your left or right and you’ll quickly see you can fit in a number of different kinds of workouts at this facility.
And Fitness Director Daniel Wilsea can’t wait to put the #TrainersConnect crew through the ringer with a few of them. Get ready to try out three different workouts, each 20 minutes in length, across the entire gym. You’ll experience cardio and boxing, functional training and a series of circuits in the group fitness studio.
For this hour, the Soho House gym will be closed off for #TrainersConnect attendees only, so be sure to grab your spot and make it to this exclusive experience.

Dawn’s going to sit us down post-workout for a talk that goes beyond the basics of nutrition.
