Show Us Your Muscles: Ultimate Fitness Expo Comes to the Pier

August 21, 2014

Are you ready to get pumped up? Navy Pier is thrilled to be hosting the final stop in this summer’s Ultimate Fitness Expo with Hollywood physique expert “Eric the Trainer” and, creator of Tae Bo® Fitness, Billy Blanks. Put on by Celebrity Sweat, the expo will feature fitness classes, informative booths and representatives from local fitness venues in the city.


Eric Fleishman (aka “Eric the Trainer) began his fitness career with a chip on his shoulder as a little wimpy kid from rural Maine. After being picked on much of his life for his size, Eric decided it was time to do something about it. He pinpointed the science of change through three major components: diet, exercise, and sleep, and as they say: the rest is history. Fleishman fell in love with exercise and following college decided to make his passion his work. Eric the Trainer now works with some of the most prominent Hollywood celebrities and athletes in the world and this weekend, you!


Like Fleishman, Billy Blanks has built a worldwide reputation as one of the most trusted names in fitness. As a winner of 36 gold medals, a seven-time Martial Arts Champion, and creator of America’s original full-body workout, Tae Bo® Fitness, Blanks’ sights are now set on a new goal in life: helping others discover the power within themselves to achieve and do anything they want to. Tae Bo® Fitness is much more than a workout, it is a way of life. Tae Bo® Workouts challenge your mind, will, body, and spirit taking you to new heights. This synergistic effect is the essence of how the mind, will, soul and body come together to form Tae Bo® Fitness. Blanks has devoted much of his life to helping millions of people get in shape and feel great, and has worked with numerous celebrities, athletes, military personnel, and everyday people around the world. Sign up online and reserve a spot in one or both of Billy Blanks’ Tae Bo® classes here, and find out why this revolutionary workout regimen has taken the fitness community by storm!


This completely free event takes place Saturday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. in Compass Rose and is a must for exercise enthusiasts and beginners alike. With back-to-back free classes featuring Tae Bo®, Zumba, yoga, Pilates, and Crossfit.  Not to mention, a Chair Dance 101 Class for those who want to add a little spice to their work out! Featuring fitness tips, sampling, prizes, music, and more, you may even find yourself enjoying your workout!
