Chicago Elite Fitness is a haven where athletes can come and work out together in a fun community with intense drive. At the facility's CrossFit Bucktown section, certified CrossFit coaches design a different Workout of the Day (WOD) each day, which blends exercises from various fitness disciplines such as gymnastics, weightlifting, plyometrics, cardio, and strength training. Though the WOD is never the same, athletes may be tasked with lifting weights, running, rowing, or working out with less conventional equipment such as ropes, tires, and kettlebells. The facility also houses the Chicago Barbell Club and a team of USAW-certified coaches.
Located inside the historic former Washington Park YMCA, Mettle Fitness welcomes guests who are serious about getting in shape. The facility's owner, former NFL player Jason Burns, oversees the fitness programs, which include boot camps, CrossFit classes, and sports training sessions. One glance around the facility and you'll notice the lack of fitness machines, mirrors, and other items you'd expect to find in a gym. In their place are functional forms of resistance such as free weights, kettlebells, and exercisers' own body weight, which can be increased by eating cheeseburgers.
