11/20: #Hikeworking Adventure with Arc’teryx

As city dwellers there are a million and 1 perks of living in an urban-setting. However, there is something to be said about breathing the fresh air and heading out into nature. The feeling of the squishy ground on our feet, the cool air on our skin and the sounds of…wait, no sirens!? Ahhhh, the great outdoors! We need it and we want you to come with us on a day of adventure.

Join us and our friends at Arc’teryx as we head out to the Warren Dunes State Park on Saturday, November 20th. Pack up your bag full of layers as we take on mother nature before the onset of, dare we say it, “Winter is Coming.”

We’ll leave Chicago bright and early, meeting at Arc’teryx Gold Coast at 7 am before taking a bus out to the Dunes. We’ll hike for a few hours while stopping for picturesque moments. Then, we will take the bus for a short drive to a local organic farmstead brewery – River St. Joe. We will get a chance to tour their hop yard, socialize with our new hiking buddies, and taste their brews and farm-to-table bites (First beer is on us). We will head back to the city to make it home by 5 pm. Throughout the day, we’ll be fueled with our favorite snacks. Trust us, we’ve got the snack part of the day covered.

And to gear you up even further for the rest of your adventures, Arc’teryx will be raffling off their Arro 22 backpack in stealth black & 5 pairs of gloves. Put your phones on silent mode but have your camera’s ready to take in the beauty and participate in these giveaways as part of a social media challenge.

Bonus! Arc’teryx will have their Norvan LD 2 trail running shoe available in a variety of sizes to take for a trial on the trails.

About Kelly Matkovich

Kelly fell in love with the aSweatLife family when she became an ambassador in 2016. Through goal-setting and the exposure to trying new things, she made some pretty big career goals for herself. In 2017, she quit her full time job as a Director of Meetings and events for a Women’s Cancer Association to pursue the crazy world of entrepreneurship/contract work/working multiple jobs and a career in fitness. During this time, she got her NASM personal training certificate and became a group fitness instructor while also earning certifications in yoga sculpt and health coaching. She traveled around the world executing large conferences and started a wellness events company within the hospitality industry. Through this very exciting but very bumpy new career path, she always had aSweatLife ambassadors there to support her along the way. Now, as the Senior Director of Communities, her focus is to grow with this amazing group of ambassadors and inspire them to reach their BHAGS through uniquely crafted experiences, events and community.
