|Nike's NTC Lincoln Park retail space on level one|
On level one, you have your retail. You'll find your shoes, your training gear, your sports bras, your tops and bottoms, your carry-alls. Basically everything you'd want at Niketown (correction: Nike Chicago) on the Mag Mile has made its way to Armitage. Except for one tiny detail. NTC has all the women's gear a girl could want. No Air Jordans or football jerseys or any of the other stuff you breeze past inside Nike Chicago when your one-track-mind is sending you upstairs to the running and women's sections.

According to DailyCandy, some of our favorite Chicago sweat spots will be leading the workouts at NTC. Instructors and coaches from Barre Bee Fit, On Your Mark and Tru Harmony Yoga will lead these classes, including NTC, barre and boot camps. Better yet, these ass-whoopings are free, gratis, sin dinero--and seven days a week. Well, as long as you're one of the first 20 people to RSVP for your desired class, which you can do by following @ntclincolnpark on Twitter.
You don't need a gym when you have NTC, seriously. And you don't need to fret about forgetting your workout gear at home. Socks and sports bra still sitting in the dryer? Post-workout wrap hanging in the closet? Lost your running watch? Just pick one up on the first floor either before your sweat session or on your way out. We love it and can't wait to sweat again--our Tuesday yoga session wasn't enough.
Stay tuned for a slideshow with even more images from one of our new favorite Chicago spaces! But in the meantime, check out the below workout schedule so you can start sweating NTC style next week.
