Studio Three, an innovative fitness facility featuring Peloton® Indoor Cycling, Interval Training and Yoga on three separate floors, is set to open to the public on Wednesday, November 18. The 16,000-square-foot studio seeks to synergize and extend the fitness experience beyond class walls, offering an inviting community atmosphere for guests to relax, recharge and connect.
In an exclusive partnership with Real Good Juice Co., a cold-pressed juice bar and café welcomes members and guests into Studio Three and, post-workout, invites them to unwind or plug-in with complimentary Wi-Fi. Fitness enthusiasts will also enjoy the benefit of the studio's fashion-forward active wear retail area, spacious locker rooms and showers fully stocked with natural, organic skincare and grooming products by EO. Studio Three is equipped with everything required for a stress-free, enjoyable fitness routine — and a lighter gym bag — all under one roof, including towels, bike shoes, yoga mats and built-in locker locks.
"We conceived Studio Three because we saw a niche that needed to be filled in the boutique fitness world," said David Blitz, Managing Partner of BlitzLake Partners, owner and operator of Studio Three. "We wanted to create a space that not only offers the ultimate fitness experience, but also creates a sense of community and comfort for our members, hence the genesis of our name, which reflects the three places that matter – home, work, and your third space. If our studio is your last scheduled hour of the day, we want it to be the best possible experience."
All of the classes at Studio Three are designed to make your body feel better, move better and look better and are led by highly educated and communicative instructors, each hand-selected for their superior training and elite fitness backgrounds. Unparalleled in its synced lighting, sound design and technology, each highly motivating class is unlike anything else available in the Chicago fitness landscape.
Studio Three is also the first and only facility in Chicago, and the second in the country, to feature live Peloton® cycling classes, an in-studio and at-home fitness solution for live and on-demand spin classes comprised of trackable metrics and a fun, competitive edge, on its main floor. Peloton has been heralded as "the best cardio machine on the planet" by Men's Health and described as "easily the best indoor workout" by Barron's magazine.
"We are excited to bring Peloton to Chicago and join forces with Studio Three," said John Foley, CEO and Founder of Peloton. "Chicago is one of our top 10 Peloton markets and we have not had a local presence until now. The partnership with Studio Three allows us to bring something truly special to the Chicago market through our best-in-class cycling classes and a live television streaming facility at the Peloton studio."
On the facility's lower level, guests can partake in group interval training classes, a systematic approach to multi-planar movements paired with bass pumping beats and the latest in advanced Woodway treadmills, WaterRowers and loaded movement technology. Each interval session is designed to create a body that moves, feels and performs better while burning calories long after the workout is over.
On the upper level, a variety of hot, restorative and athletic yoga classes are offered to allow minds and bodies to detox, relax and rejuvenate. Featuring floor to ceiling windows and space for more than 50 mats, the yoga studio is also outfitted with radiant heat panels and fully adjustable temperature and humidity levels.
Members can choose one discipline, two or try all three. "Studio Three takes the studio fitness trend to the next level by combining three disciplines under one roof. The studio is designed to complement and balance your workouts — no more traveling across town for different classes and purchasing multiple boutique gym memberships," explained Jason Rutledge, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Studio Three. "If you want to try a different workout to switch up your routine, simply go with your friends to another floor. You are always just a few steps away from a balance in your fitness routine."
Studio Three is located at 648 North Clark Street, Chicago, Illinois 60610 (corner of Clark and Erie Streets). Hours are Monday-Thursday 5 a.m.-9:30 p.m., Friday 5 a.m.-8:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday 6:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Individual classes are priced from $21-$26 and monthly memberships are $200-$650.
