Last week, Nike opened Nike Training Club (833 W. Armitage,, its new ladies-only retail and studio in Lincoln Park. The boutique portion of the store carries a nice assortment of gear—including printed running tights and Legend pants ($65), ballet-inspired footwear ($110), and Nike + Fuelbands ($149)—all of these products, however, can be found at the enormous Nike flagship on Michigan Avenue; the upstairs space is what’s truly noteworthy in the training club. A studio on the second floor offers free group classes seven days a week. (And this isn’t just a first bite on the house to suck you in!) Every class is always complimentary and women can sign up for four 45-minute workouts per week. Local trainers and instructors lead classes like yoga, barre-based workouts, and running clubs.
