With bridal season right around the corner, Lincoln Park's Equinox Fitness Club is offering a day of beauty for brides-to-be, along with a little butt kicking mixed in to help whip them into shape before their big day.
Equinox Bridal Boot Camp is scheduled for Saturday from 2 - 5 p.m., and you don't have to be a member of the club to participate.
Equinox certified trainers will start the day by taking the brides through a 60 minute high-energy, muscle-fatiguing boot camp class.
The class is geared to help increased cardiovascular and muscular endurance, burn fat and calories, improve balance, coordination and posture, and gain overall strength and lean muscle tissue.
Staff will also be available for one-on-one sessions with the brides to answer specific questions and teach exercises specific to the brides needs.
Afterward the sweaty part is out of the way, attendees will enjoy small bites and participate in a question and answer session with Lisbeth Levin, who co-wrote "The Big Book for Your Big Day" with famed wedding planner Mindy Weiss. She'll offer advice on how to properly plan a wedding, and offer solutions to every wedding worry.
The Spa @ Equinox's licensed massage therapists and estheticians will also be on site offering chair massages and hand facials and tips on looking your best for the wedding weekend. Staff from Ortanic, a new bronzing and contouring airbrush system that personalizes tans, will also be offering customized discount tanning packages for brides and their wedding party.
