Halloween is over, the holiday season is just around the corner, and before we know it, we’ll ring in a brand new year.
What will 2014 look like for you?
If you want to make a commitment to a healthier you, now is the time to get a jump-start on that goal.
On January 4, 2014, the 90-Day Transformation Challenge begins.
It’s a team-based approach to losing weight and body fat, designed to not only change your body, but your mind as well.
Whatever your goals, our coaches are ready to provide a series of fun team and individual workouts, nutrition seminars, and online coaching that will transform your body. Plus, you’ll have a chance to win some great prizes.
Two of our fitness professionals will captain a team of member participants. Your coach will work with you both individually and within your group from January 4 through April 4.
Participants can further customize the challenge to suit individual goals.
Members can choose from the following two goals:
Fit Body: Build strength and endurance. Lose body fat, improve overall fitness and achieve the greatest percentage of total body fat lost.
Weight Loss: Lose weight and achieve the greatest percentage of total body weight lost.
You can then select your experience from the following:
Jump Start: Begin your workout program with one 30-minute private coaching session and three small group coaching sessions. ($99)
Go Ahead: Increase overall fitness and wellbeing with one 30-minute private coaching session, seven small group coaching sessions and two 30-minute sports massages. ($299)
Performance: Take your fitness to the next level with one 30-minute private coaching session, eleven small group coaching sessions, three private nutrition consultations, and three 30-minute sports massages. ($599)
No matter which goal and experience you choose, the 90-Day Transformation Challenge also includes:
Specially designed, low-impact group fitness classes throughout the program, available to 90-Day Transformation Challenge participants only
A 90-Day Transformation Challenge t-shirt in your team’s color
Motivation and encouragement from your team captain and your teammates every step of the way

An Opportunity to Give Back
Help someone stay warm this season by decorating our Holiday Mitten Tree. This month, Midtown is collecting donations of new mittens/gloves, hats, and scarves for West Suburban PADS to distribute to those in need in our community. Both children’s and adults’ sizes are needed, so let’s make it as full and colorful as possible! Thank you in advance for your support of this great cause.
10:30AM – 12:00PM New Years Yoga and Meditation with Teresa
And in case you didn’t have a chance to join us on Christmas Eve, here is a quick recap of some of our special holiday classes:
The morning began with a special sneak-peek of Group Core, a high-energy class designed to trim and tone every muscle between your hips and shoulders. The class will become part of our regularly scheduled programming in January, so stay tuned.
Several members also rushed to our annual Jingle Jam cycle class, featuring all of the classic holiday hits. If you think Santa’s reindeer worked hard on Christmas Eve, they had nothing on our dedicated cyclers!
Wishing all Midtown members and friends a joyous holiday season, and a happy and healthy 2012. How are you going to make this your best year yet?
Although Thanksgiving menus have changed over the years, turkey and pumpkin have been standard fare since the first feast at Plymouth Colony. As much as we enjoy these tasty items and their accompaniments, we fret over the amount of calories consumed during these last weeks of the calendar year.
Worry no more! Midtown has developed a plan to help you stay fit and trim; all you have to do is be willing to move. Here are all the details you need to know about the upcoming holiday schedule at the club.

How do you decide which class(es) to take? It depends on what you need. If the start of the holiday season has already sent your stress level skyrocketing, a Yoga or Qi Gong class may be your best bet. On the other hand, if you are feeling energized and ready to sweat out the incoming calories, Cycle, Zumba, Group Power, or Cross Train might be right up your alley. Try out BalletFit for the best of both worlds!
For the newbies, here are a few more details on a couple of our special classes.
Qi Gong features simple, yet powerful movements and breathing exercises to help you strengthen your body and restore vitality.
BalletFit includes a unique combination of ballet, strength exercises, flexibility exercises, and Pilates, and will help you reduce stress, improve balance, and strengthen your core. Ballet training is not required.
Wednesday, November 23, and Thursday, November 24: Sign up your kids for Turkey Day fun in Kidtown where they’ll make their own Thanksgiving placemat or pinecone turkey. They’ll also enjoy some classic holiday favorites like “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and “Garfield’s Thanksgiving Special.” Reservations required.
How do you plan to get active this Thanksgiving? Family Turkey Bowl Football anyone?
