Get your workout in during happy hour



    Burn Fat at the Bar

    Logging away hours on the treadmill is getting old -- really old -- so it's time to add some much-needed variety to your routine while getting some much-needed happy hour time in at the same time.

    Yes, it may seem contradictory that you can burn calories and get in shape during cocktail hour, but it's true.

    afterWERQ hosts a series of fitness parties at area bars that offer a guilt-free excuse to trade in the gym for a different setting. 

    The dance fitness classes come compolete a bumpin’ soundtrack and takes place on the dance floor.

    And as a reward for all those muscles you just worked out, you can treat yourself to some low-cal post-workout cocktails afterward.

    The next event takes place February 17 at Wicker Park's Double Door and tickets are $15 in advance. 

    And who says dancing on couches isn't good for you?
