After attending boot camps for a while, Maizah's motivation fizzled and she dropped the course. But refusing to accept defeat? even if it weren't his own?The Boot Camp Guy's cofounder, Chris Brown, gave her a call and made a case. He showed her some before-and-after shots of people she'd met at the sessions before she left?and was astounded by their transformations.

"That could have been me," she kept thinking. So she headed back to class determined that this time, it would be. Months later, she'd gone from a size 16/18 down to a size 12 with extra energy to boot.

As a former Marine with 14 years of professional fitness experience and a passion for helping people reach their goals, Chris knows that boot camp isn't about the stereotypical screaming drill sergeants depicted on TV. Instead, he and his trainers employ a realistic, no-scales and no-diets philosophy and focus on supplying their students with the motivation they need. They identify each student's fitness level within moments and calibrate their workouts accordingly, pitching the signature boot-camp classes at beginner, intermediate, and expert levels. This approach seeks to get students to their own desired level of "skinny", whether that's a size two, size 14, or any other goal. The trainers further outfit their boot-camp base model with nine different tracks?with one designed to shed weight?and total-body sessions up the ante with weights, resistance bands, and mat exercises to strengthen entire physiques rather than honing in on left pinkies. They also encourage students to eat the food they enjoy, and to be mindful of which nutrients their body needs to address deficiencies and restore balance.

The fitness menu unfurls a feast of other group classes. Cycle circuits combine intensive spinning with ab work on the turf and toning dumbbell drills. Cardio-kickboxing classes blend aerobics, boxing, and martial arts. All told, they offer more than 100 classes each month from their well-stocked studio, which the staff stocks with free weights, strength-training machines, exercise balls, and resistance bands, as well as a recently added indoor obstacle course.

Beginners and seasoned yogis alike are welcome at 105F - Bikram Yoga Chicago. Here, instructors lead classes that are designed to lure students to their limits, providing a demanding physical challenge for all skill and fitness levels. Each of the three studio locations contains a practice room that is heated to 105 degrees with 40%?45% humidity, creating a sweat-inducing, tropical setting that aids practicers by loosening their muscles as they sink into each stretch.

The 90-minute classes all follow the same sequence: two breathing exercises and 26 standing and seated asanas, which use deep twists and bends to methodically work organ systems and muscle groups throughout the entire body. Instructors slowly guide students into poses and ensure that they can perform each asana at a level that safely challenges their limits. Continued practice can help yogis hone their strength and endurance while also learning to maintain a greater sense of focus and mind-body awareness, even in the face of physical distractions like another student's Sudoku puzzle back tattoo.

Praised for their calorie-blasting abilities by Time Out Chicago and BurnThis, TruHarmony's heated yoga classes help students hone strength, flexibility, and endurance. In beginners' yoga, instructors lead newbies through flow sequences, teaching pupils how to link fundamental yoga poses with careful, balance-challenging movements and deep-breathing exercises; pose modifications help beginning yogis or those with especially inflexible spandex. For those who prefer working out at more neutral temperatures, TruHarmony offers an unheated class each week.

For a more intense workout, students can head over to yoga sculpt and boot-camp sweat sessions, which incorporate strength-training, circuit-training, and plyometric exercises into traditional yoga moves to build the endurance and strength needed to wrangle sticky-mat kites into the air. Mornings can begin in the Sunrise Flow class, and yogis can try something new in the Barre/Flow Fusion classes. A new "Kid's Corner" offers childcare during select class times for practicing parents.

"Life takes life out of you. Yoga puts it back." Amy Treciokas, founder of Yoga Now, lives by these words. In high school, Treciokas—already a fledgling yoga practitioner—was drawn to the savasana relaxation pose because it "was a great time for a nap." After being reintroduced to yoga as an adult, she truly fell in love. A consuming passion for the energizing and stress-relieving practice of yoga led her to spend three years in India to learn at the feet of yogis in Mysore, an intensive period of study that helped her to obtain authorization to teach Ashtanga yoga. Not long after she was authorized, Treciokas founded Yoga Now.

Yoga Now's studio evidences a commitment to sustainable-living practices, including bamboo flooring, eco-friendly insulation, and energy-efficient lighting powered by giant hamster wheels. Students practice yoga on rubber mats and sustainable cork blocks, or they relax their muscles by lounging in the complimentary sauna and steam room or indulging in one of nine massage modalities that are available seven days a week. An extensive team of teachers and healers helps to fill out a class schedule that spans from early morning to night.

Visitors to CrossFit Chicago don't find a gym's typical treadmills and weight machines. Instead, upon arrival at the 11,000-square-foot facility, they're greeted by barbells, pull-up bars, rowers, and medicine balls. The knowledgeable, passionate staff of coaches oversees this blend of old-fashioned equipment and new-school exercise theory, drawing from a diverse array of experiences and qualifications as they go. Owner Rudy Tapalla might use motivational techniques learned during his time as a USMC Sergeant, and lead coach Sara Cook might incorporate mastery of specific CrossFit components such as gymnastics, Olympic lifting, and nutrition during her women-specific workouts.

Equipped with space, exercises, and guidance, trainees transform their bodies with constant, varied movement, such as swinging kettlebells, leaping onto boxes, and flipping tractor tires. Specialized programs, such as women's only sessions or kids' classes, build strong bonds between participants while promoting healthy lifestyles full of rigorous activity.
