"Physical activity is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, and we encourage Chicagoans to take advantage of this special incentive," said Chicago Park District General Superintendent and CEO Timothy J. Mitchell.
During the promotion from Jan. 2-10, patrons who extend the complimentary one-week period into a January-March 2010 winter-session membership will receive a free Nike cinch bag, while supplies last. Membership rates to the Chicago Park District's fitness centers are affordable and range from $30-$75 for three months, a fraction of the cost of commercial gyms.
