Wednesday night I went to Soldier Field for a football inspired Nike Training Club workout, on Soldier Field...
I saw the event being promoted on the @nikechicago twitter feed last week and decided to submit an entry for their "VIP" contest. I ended up being one of the winners. (The general registration for the event was free and included a pretty sweet t shirt for the non VIP participants.)
As a "VIP" I got a Nike plus Fuel band, a Nike bears tee, Nike sports bra, nike hyper warm long sleeve, nike socks, nike free trainers, and Nike running tights. All were comfortable and kept me warm. Pretty freaking sweet! Even sweeter was I got a "plus 1," so I invited Emily to join me.
The event featured a 30 minute workout on soldier field with Nike master Trainers Marie Purvis and Alex Molden (Former NFL defensive back for the Saints) followed by appetizers then a fashion show hosted by Kristin Cavallari and Brittney Payton. (Daughter of Walter).. There were over 450 women in attendance!! It was an amazing event.
Words really can't describe how it felt to be walking in the bowels of Soldier Field to the Visitors locker room where we saw the lockers with our names....
We got a pep talk from Marie in the locker room, and then we got to run onto the field.
The workout was a difficult 30 minutes worth of short intervals of lunges, squats, jumps- I was out of breath and my quads/glutes were on fire by the end of it.
Earl Bennett , wide receiver for the bears also made an appearance!
Being on Soldier Field was amazing!!
After the workout they had some delicious appetizers for the participants, and then the fashion show began.
Got a photo with Brittney Payton. Was also hoping for a photo with Kristin, but they whisked her away quickly.
Kristin looked fabulous.
One of my Fav looks of the show. (All of them were stylish!)
Nike really out did themselves at this event. I really didn't know what to expect, but it far surpassed whatever I would have imagined. They certainly pulled out all the stops! And did I mention this event was FREE for EVERYONE who registered? Nike said they are planning on having more events in the future- I hope so because this was amazing. I might also have to start going to their NTC workouts at the Nike Chicago store each week to challenge myself. I love the NTC App, but working out in a group is much more fun.
We had a blast! Emily, my co-worker Adele, and I.
THANK YOU Nike for putting on such an incredible event!
