It’s very common for people to slowly stop working out when the weather gets cold. Hanging out with friends and family always beats going to the gym. But, why not get in some exercise while hanging out with people? There are several events in Chicago you can go to with friends while keeping fit at the same time.
- Christmas Around The World @ Museum of Science & Industry
- Christkindl Market
- Lincoln Park Zoo Zoo Lights
- Brookfield Zoo Holiday Magic
- Winter Wonderfest at Navy Pier
According to Spark People, a 150 pound person can burn up to 330 calories walking for two hours. You could probably spend that much time walking around any of those events.
Walking isn’t the best form of exercise you can do for weight loss, but it definitely beats sitting on the couch!
