Something’s cooking at Lake Shore Sports & Fitness Club

By Jon Cohn | Community Contributor

We all know it as a fitness club with sports and recreational activities and of course all the latest in workout and exercise equipment but…

Did you know?

cooking-clip-art-pc5eR56BiThe Eastside’s very own Lake Shore Sports and Fitness Club also has some great cooking classes going on — all year round.

They teach the classes  right out of their highly acclaimed restaurant,  which is called The Press Kitchen.

Hey, part of fitness is eating healthy, so why not combine the workout with good cooking ?

Head chef Michael Tsonton and his staff have put together some unique and fun cooking classes that are completely open to the public.

Among some of the recent offerings and ones coming up are:

–Heart healthy cooking class

–Ramen cooking (101 things you can do with the Ramen noodle?)

— Holiday cookie cooking class

–Girls night out class

— Couples night out cooking class

–Taco’s, Tequila and Tom class (not sure who and or what Tom is, but as for the other two—I’m in!)

Again all of these and more are open to the general public and information and full schedule of classes can be found at their website  The Club is located in the Illinois Center at 211 N Stetson Ave.

If cooking class is just not enough, you can always “adventure “out to some of their other offerings including: group outings; special event days; all kinds of fitness and exercise classes; a little basketball in the gym; or the popular Rock Climbing Wall, especially rock climbing.  It’s not just for young kids but adults and beginners as well.

Classes and lessons are in full swing for all levels of indoor rock climbing.  This is a fun and unique way to stay in shape during the cold winter months.

Finally, some friendly advice from your local community newspaper writer?

While both classes are great — do not take the tacos and tequila class and then do the rock climbing wall immediately after.

Big mistake.
