June 20-24, 2022 #SweatworkingWeek
Get your tickets below! ⬇️
We’re about to proudly spend the summer celebrating our 10th anniversary, and all that commences with our 10th #SweatworkingWeek.
We’ll be spending June 20-24 celebrating movement in so many different forms – with heavy weights and on fancy machines in studios across the city and under the summer sky in Maggie Daley Park.
#SweatworkingWeek is a week that’s one part restaurant week and one part music fest, so you get to try so many new things and meet a lot of new people. Because if we’ve learned anything over our 10 years doing this, the best workout for you is the one that brings you joy and everything, especially workouts, is better with friends.
And we’ll be peppering in special moments and perks from friends, partners, and musical guests. And we’re creating moments with partners that will help you feel the spirit of friendship too!
And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that this is our 3rd summer watching for CDC updates and making sure you feel safe. That’s while you’ll see a schedule that mixes indoor and outdoor workouts to support you at your comfort level.
Ready for a summer of Celebration. Get your tickets below! ⬇️
What to expect
What you need:
Your own yoga mat, your own hydration, and anything else you want for an outdoor workout! Additional items provided in the workout description.
You'll find two ticket tiers this year - the $20 ticket for a person coming alone to #SweatworkingWeek, and a $15 ticket for a person buying tickets in groups. We also have a scholarship request for anyone who needs a little help right now. That request can be found in every event listing.
Our safety and Sanitation Protocols:
We are following all protocols advised by the CDC and City of Chicago. We're excited to be indoors again this year at the studios we love, but we do ask that you self-report any illness symptoms and to stay home if you show any signs of illness leading up to the event.
Summer of Friendship:
We'll have plenty of opportunities to make and deepen friendships across #SweatworkingWeek. Friendship bracelets anyone?

You can expect to incorporate anything from kettlebells, dumbbells, and med balls to ski ergs, assault runners, and sled pushes on the gym’s 15 yd turf. If the weather is nice, we’ll be opening up the 17ft garage door to bring in the fresh air and sunshine. At Bolt Fitness it doesn’t matter what your fitness level or experience is. We take every workout and make it work for you. With variations, you can simplify or challenge yourself as you see fit. From the words of Nike’s co-founder: “If you have a body, you are an athlete.”
June 24, 12:15 pm: Basecamp Fitness: One minute intervals sound short, until you’re in them and you’re pushing yourself ’til you feel the burn. And just when you’re ready to cry Uncle, we switch to strength training. Then cardio/strength/cardio again. You get the idea. In cardio sets, Assault bikes will push you. Push back harder. Dig deep and attack each one-minute burst with all the speed you can possibly muster. In strength sets, you’ll find an ever-changing mashup of TRX, kettlebells, weights, medicine balls – even your own body weight.
