The licensed and CPR-certified personal trainers at FITT-RX eschew the in-your-face negative mentality of other fitness programs to create a convivial atmosphere for clients aged 14 or older. They embrace Tabata training and circuits in indoor and outdoor boot camps and seek to build core strength, stamina, and flexibility for those aged 50 or older in Fitness Fusion classes. Five programs are designed to instill the importance of fitness in kids, and personal-training sessions help participants create custom plans to meet their weight-loss goals.
The Dailey Method blends tenets of ballet, core conditioning, yoga, and kinesiology into exercise classes designed for a variety of ages and abilities. Within the studio, students gather for the non-impact classes, working on bodily alignment, balance, and posture. On-site childcare facilities are also available for little ones during classes.
Under the umbrella of the Addison Park District, Club Fitness regales guests of all ages with 44,000 square feet worth of exercise equipment, group fitness studios, and aquatic amenities. Amid the clang of cardio and strength-training machines, certified instructors lead members through a range of free fitness classes, including Zumba, yoga, cycling, Pilates, and aquatic fitness sessions. Seasoned swimmers, 17 and older, can splash about within a six-lane lap pool, and runners can train for upcoming races by looping around the indoor running track in dramatic slow motion with arms outstretched. Those more interested in relaxation can sweat away anxieties in the hot tub or sauna. Before changing clothes within the modern locker rooms, parents can drop their tots off with the friendly attendants at the onsite childcare area.

“Routine is the enemy,” say the trainers at CrossFit Alpha Dog, whose students never see the same workout twice. Since the body adjusts to repetitive workouts, the team keeps it guessing by mixing up exercises with unpredictable combinations of organic movements, sprinting, plyometrics, and gymnastics. These workouts are designed to improve functional strength—practical musclepower that head trainer Tommy Moon calls upon during his firefighting career and that students may need when carrying an injured person to safety or a healthy person to a salad bar.
The gym itself reflects this functional approach. Gymnastic rings dangle from webbings of monkey bars, and a wide-open space offers ample room for lunges, sprints, and push-ups.
