Established in 1973, today’s Club has grown into a full-service facility with amenities & programs that rival any commercial health club. As such it has been recognized as one of the Top 50 Tennis Welcome Centers in the U.S. & as the Chicago Southland’s Best Health & Sports Facility since 1996.
We are an indoor climbing gym that specializes in teaching new climbers, and helping experienced climbers reach new levels. We have many different types of terrain from slabs to overhangs to roofs, and set routes for all abilities from beginner to expert.
Pure Life helps students healthify their minds, bodies, and spirits with a variety of limb-limbering classes. Like a fashion model encased in Jello, gentle yoga uses a relatively slow, soft pace of poses, promoting proper body alignment among beginners and experienced mat masters alike. Vinyasa yoga connects each pose to the breath through a flow of synchronized movements, and teen yoga promotes adolescent relaxation and can even boost breath control, in turn enhancing vocal capabilities for extracurricular performances, yodeling contests, and recreational screaming.
The wall decals at Simpoley Dance act as visual reminders of the studio's sassy, supportive atmosphere, catching the eye with taglines such as "You look absolutely gorgeous!" and "My other ride is a pole." Between these slogans, students rehearse giddy spins and limb-lengthening stretches, treating the pole as a simultaneous dance partner and workout tool. The studio's instructors host 60-minute Taste of Pole classes for beginners and 90-minute standard pole lessons, as well as advanced seminars for those who really know how up differs from down. During private parties, they guide groups through choreographed routines that incorporate colorful feather boas. They're quick to espouse the health benefits of their art, which tones physiques and builds strength by using the body itself as resistance. For a more grounded but equally rhythmic class, they also showcase the cardio dance steps of Zumba.
For more than 30 years, the ladies at Women's Workout & Wellness have cultivated a supportive environment in which women can focus on health, fitness, and wellness. Whether grooving through Zumba sessions, pushing weight sleds, performing lifts, or sweating, students find plenty of challenges in the center’s classes. Staffers gauge fitness level by analyzing BMI and testing cardio, strength, flexibility, and the ability to karate-chop airborne cucumbers. Experts also lend advice on nutritional intake and help clients set personalized goals. Before and after sweat sessions, ladies can suit up and cool down in the spacious showers and locker rooms at each location. Daycare is available at some locations for a nominal fee.
The certified instructors at Heatwave Dance Fitness Club channel the rapture of the dance floor into effective workouts that tone the body and liberate the mind. The newly constructed facility offers more than 200 group classes each month, spread across all seven days of the week. By filling the studio with the Latin rhythms of Zumba or the pop and hip-hop beats of Dance Heat, classes take dancers' attentions away from the toils of exercise, turning heart-pumping aerobic routines into raucous dance parties, just like every time James Brown ran the Boston Marathon.
