About the Event

You’re invited to join host Marquita Anderson on Sunday August 29th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a morning of exercise and wellness in benefit of Chicago Lights at Ace Hotel Chicago. 

Fitness trainers and coaches Marquita Anderson, Kelita Hollins and Paige Willis will lead attendees through a series of back-to-back classes – from strength to yoga, there is something for everyone.

Your ticket welcomes you to take the collab class experience, access to shopping with local vendors and mingling with fellow supporters of Chicago Lights. Ticket proceeds will directly impact students involved in Chicago Lights programming. 

Chicago Lights

The Chicago Lights community works to provide creative youth development and social services for young people. The tutoring program pairs students with mentors to help them build academic and social-emotional skills, graduate from high school, and pursue diverse careers. The Summer Day program brings together 125 students for a six-week academic, arts, dance, and enrichment programming to bridge the summer learning and safety gap. 

The Instructors

Marquita Anderson is a Personal and Group Fitness Trainer with a professional dance background. She currently teaches dance classes at Chicago Lights. Get ready for great music, big energy and a challenge.

Kelita Hollins is a Strength Coach and Group Instructor specializing in strength and conditioning. Be prepared to incorporate all of your major muscle groups as well as the teeny, tiny ones you may not know about.

Paige Willis is the founder of Undone, a pop-up yoga and meditation experience for mind-body renewal. Paige Vinyasa yoga flow is designed to help everybody — beginners, pros, and everyone in-between — build a strong foundation for your yoga practice, release tension, and get grounded. 

The Workout

The hour and a half experience will start with a 15-minute yoga flow, next a 30-minute strength training class followed by a 30-minute full body HIIT workout. We’ll end with 15-minutes of yoga and meditation. 

Class will be followed by post workout refreshments from Frogtown Juice Company and our friends at Delos Therapy will help your muscles recover. 

This event takes place on the 6th floor of Ace Hotel Chicago. Tickets are required for entry/participation. Doors will open at 9:45 a.m., and class will begin promptly at 10:30 a.m.
