New York-based fitness chain Exhale has announced plans to open its second Chicago-area location in the E2 apartment tower at 1890 Maple Ave. in Evanston.

What the company calls its new “mind-body boutique” will be located on the ground floor of the building and will feature core fusion barre, extreme and cardio classes.

It also is planned to have a “well-being boutique” with fitness apparel and gifts, changing rooms with showers and complimentary daily-use lockers and validated parking in the E2 building.

The business is scheduled to open in December, and it’s part of a growth plan that will see the 13-year-old chain expand this year to a total of 29 locations in 10 markets.
