Free Fitness Find

I'm all about freebies whether it be samples at the grocery store (Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, especially) or signing up for a perk that gives me something in return (like Nike's Race Day Challenge and Nike+ member benefits at the marathon that scored me a massage and swag). While I'm not complaining about the food fuel, the free finds where I can score something that I'd otherwise be paying for are my faves. Think gym memberships for a day, fitness classes and you've got yourself a winner. So when I heard of this latest freebie, I was all over it.

If you're a CorePower Yoga follower then you can appreciate this one. The Windy City just scored its second CorePower location, opening at 12 W. Maple in the Gold Coast. To celebrate the opening earlier this month--October 2 to be exact--and commemorate the one-year anniversary of the South Loop location, they're hosting a Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, October 17. But this isn't just any party. The evening kicks off at 6 p.m. with an hour-long free, donations-accepted yoga class led by studio manager Chris Nassivera. Proceeds from the class will benefit the Breast Cancer Network of Strength, which provides emotional relief to anyone affected by breast cancer and endures that no one faces the disease alone.

The party really gets started beyond the studio after the stretching and sweating are done. You've revved your inner energy so starting at 7:30 p.m. and running until 10:30 p.m. comes the entertainment with music, appetizers and cocktails. And if that wasn't enough, you can save 15% on anything you purchase in CorePower's boutique all day on Saturday. Perfect time to score a yoga mat or Yogi Toes to keep from slipping when the sweat is dripping--or at least that's what happens to me at the C2 class I've been sampling all week.
