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.
Experienced dance instructors with national and international credits showcase graceful moves beneath the soaring alabaster-hued ceilings of MaZi Dance Fitness Centre. High-intensity cardio classes with clever names including Ballerina Fight Club combine ballet movements with boxing jabs to strengthen muscles by avoiding the repetitive motions of free weights and rides on the handlebars of stationary bikes. Soft candlelight flickers across the studio, and patrons of all levels release tension before the shimmering cubist sweep of the Chicago skyline.
The inspiring trainers at MetaBody lead troops of women workouteers in results-getting one-hour workouts several times weekly. The fun classes utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment ideal for both beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. MetaBody's motivational instructors will use your instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. They’ll keep your muscles guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so you’ll never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth-brushing. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early morning boot camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late evening class. In addition to the fitness classes, you will receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound-loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching.
True to the company’s name, the trainers at Concepts Three LLC operate using a three-pronged fitness philosophy. First, they guide participants through programs and classes that include boxing, TRU (Boot) Camp outdoor sessions, and regimens called P2 and X20. Like a bespoke tuxedo made of Sudoku puzzles, these workouts are tailored to the individual but challenging as well; boot camp, for example, kicks off with an assessment day that helps the instructor accommodate each and every student, no matter his or her level. The trainers’ second goal is to make sure their clients know how to maintain results. Thus, education is a top priority, and also ties into value number three: personalizing the experience so that students feel they've made lasting, important changes suited to their individual lives.
