Beach season is finally here! And unfortunately for some, that might mean it’s time to start spending a little bit of extra time at the gym to shave off that pesky winter weight you’ve gained from the holiday season and well, just being lazy. If you live in the West Loop part of downtown Chicago, CrossTown Fitness, located at 1031 W. Madison Street, is a great and convenient option for locals to get off the couch and start getting back into shape. The personal training sessions offered at CrossTown Fitness are exceptional, with each program specifically designed to meet and exceed all your fitness goals, and child care and a variety of other total body workout classes are also available to all its members.
But housed within the walls of this premier Chicago fitness center is much more than just cardio machines, dumb bells, and medicine balls. Just recently opened at Crosstown Fitness is a small, modern health food café that features quick grab-and-go menu items that are perfect for post-workouts or a healthy lunch if you happen to live or work in the area. Known as The Daily Feed, both gym-rats and West Loop locals frequenting the café can choose from some hearty—yet healthy—entrees such as Seasoned Shrimp Skewers or a variety of delicious wraps and fresh cut salads; or if you’re looking for something lighter, try opting for a protein bar, trail mix, or a refreshing yogurt parfait.
If you’re familiar with the popular Fifty/50 Restaurant and Bar over in Chicago’s trendy Wicker Park neighborhood or Roots Handmade Pizza in West Town, you’ll be delighted to know that this same restaurant group has actually teamed up with the owner of Crosstown Fitness to bring you The Daily Feed, which of course is just a slightly different offering, cuisine-wise.
The Daily Feed seats 20 people, as well as outdoor seating for an additional 16, and is open from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Friday and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information about The Daily Feed, check out the MJPR blog, or visit their website here.
