13 sweaty moments from our Boston and Chicago Fitness Biathlons


1/13

biathlon 1Last weekend, we took our Fitness Biathlon on the road to Boston and Chicago, two of the newest cities in our Healthy City Guide series.

At both events, readers tackled back-to-back workouts—Core Fusion at Exhale and cycling at Recycle Studio in Boston, and Core Fusion at Exhale and cycling at Flywheel in Chicago. Afterward, they recuperated with us at endorphin-filled after-parties at Athleta’s Newbury and Oak Street stores, respectively. All ticket proceeds went to support Girls on the Run, a fitness and mentoring organization.

Click through to see some of our favorite moments from the sweaty weekend (and Well+Good readers giving it their all). We can’t wait to see you on a spin bike next year!
