Through CrossFit Chicago's diverse training regimens, ladies of all ages and skill levels shed superfluous fat while toning their bodies and increasing muscle mass. Held in a 3,200-square-foot, no-frills space, the intense sweat sessions may include a mélange of activities from strengthening drills, such as pushups and pull-ups, to cardio exercises including running, rowing, jump-roping, and building multistory couch forts. The supportive group environment empowers ladies as they boost overall fitness and reach their individual goals. Though the classes are intended for groups, the experienced coaches suggest alternative exercises to accommodate individuals based on skill level, ability, and limiting factors including injuries or back-talking biceps.
Visitors to CrossFit Chicago don't find a gym's typical treadmills and weight machines. Instead, upon arrival at the 11,000-square-foot facility, they're greeted by barbells, pull-up bars, rowers, and medicine balls. The knowledgeable, passionate staff of coaches oversees this blend of old-fashioned equipment and new-school exercise theory, drawing from a diverse array of experiences and qualifications as they go. Owner Rudy Tapalla might use motivational techniques learned during his time as a USMC Sergeant, and lead coach Bryce Wood might incorporate mastery of specific CrossFit components such as running, Olympic lifting, and nutrition during his workouts.
Equipped with space, exercises, and guidance, trainees transform their bodies with constant, varied movement, such as swinging kettlebells, leaping onto boxes, and flipping tractor tires.
