The purveyors of Oasis wanted to create a space where women could work out together in a pressure-free and rewarding environment. By outfitting the health club with rowers, step mills, and ellipticals, as well as a daycare, spacious locker rooms, and an infrared sauna, they brought that space to fruition. They also stocked it with a team of fitness experts, many with degrees and certifications in the field. That crew fosters a positive attitude while leading classes such as Pilates and Zumba, or personal-training sessions that can prep members for long-distance runs away from donuts. Events such as boot camps and self-defense courses are designed specifically with women in mind, while their nutrition programs round out plans for total fitness.
As instructors at Real Ryder Revolution—or R3—like to say, “We don’t spin, we ride.” They make that statement a reality by creating the closest experience to hitting the open roadways possible within a studio environment. Their facility houses 24 RealRyder cycles that add the side-to-side movements of a real-world riding experience to a stationary bike. From a small, raised platform, instructors pedal, turn, lean, and steer their way through a 45-minute workout set to adrenaline-pumping music to push students past their individual comfort zones. Routines focus on building a mind-to-muscle connection as riders strengthen their will to keep going even after they’ve realized that the german shepherd stopped chasing them. For a post-workout cleansing or a quick wardrobe change before work, R3 houses showers and changing rooms for its guests.
Even the fittest athletes can’t maintain their health on their own. Luckily, Chicago Recovery Room has their toned backs. Inside the welcoming space, clients take advantage of the top technologies in sports science and muscle therapy.

Electrical muscle stimulation preps runners for impending races, while the cooling burst of a full-submersion ice bath stems inflammation better than shin guards made from ice trays. Members can also schedule appointments for recovery services such as kinesiology taping, Sproing sessions, and video running analysis.
