Rush Performance: Personal Training Studio's certified trainers take positive attitudes and community support so seriously that if you complain during your trial of the Team Rush training program and bring any negativity, you won't be able to join Team Rush. And that would mean not torching hundreds of calories and toning up during strength, cardio, and sports conditioning sessions and high-intensity interval circuits.

Even the personal training requires supporting your fellow exercisers as it usually involves small groups of two to four working out together and forming a human pyramid to place any junk food out of reach. The trainers often use the FitRanX fitness-testing system to determine how fit a person is before they start Rush's programs and to monitor their progress throughout.

The Morton Grove Park District plays host to whole families with community-focused childcare, summer camps, fitness classes, and recreational programs. Preschool classes teach kids that classrooms are more than just growth chambers that middle schoolers walk into before emerging as bearded adults. Adults can stay fit with athletic programs or laps around the park's multiple pools. As visitors leave dance classes or wrap themselves in tinfoil to better reflect sunlight into the eyes of passing cyclists, they can take notice of the eco-friendly lighting of the Prairie View Community Center.

Different people want to get in shape for different reasons, and they go about it in many different ways. Fortunately, Fitness Formula Clubs' trainers understand this. They start every new member at their gym with four complimentary personal-training sessions that not only help hammer down each individual's goals, but also provide a solid foundation of knowledge and motivation. From there, equipment and guidance help each client reach whatever heights they're after.

Programs that focus on endurance in running, swimming, and cycling pair with Pilates work and basketball courts to develop well-rounded regimens. There's also classic equipment?cardio machines and free weights?offsetting a selection of less-than-traditional equipment?an artificial rock wall which lets clients build upper-body strength while practicing lines for their Cliffhanger: The Musical audition.

Working out shouldn't feel like a chore. That's the idea behind Kick@55 Fitness, a studio helmed by personal trainers who create fun, interactive workouts. High intensity boot camp sessions?which change weekly to keep students challenged?swap out sprints for relay races or games of tag. They also include elements from Pilates, dance, and boxing while incorporating jump ropes, kettlebells, and tires. Personal training sessions tailored to individuals adopt the same ever-changing principles to help each client reach their goals, which could include toned muscles, a slimmer physique, or the endurance needed to run an underwater marathon.

The fitness professionals at Ravenswood Fitness lead a full schedule of small- and large-group classes. Each class has its own particular focus: instructors might use interval training and yoga-inspired stretches to sculpt abdominals, elevate heart rates with high-energy indoor cycling, or combine kickboxing techniques and dance moves to build strength and endurance. Ravenswood Fitness offers these classes free to its members, along with open-gym. However, the impassioned personal trainers are always willing to offer their expertise by scheduling one-on-one sessions, designing individualized exercise plans, and providing motivation and encouragement throughout each visit.
