Fit Code’s AFAA- and ACE-certified personal trainers tackle clients’ fat-loss aspirations with 40-minute indoor boot-camp classes and personalized lifestyle assessments. The passionate instructors outline maneuvers at several stations to prepare attendees for interval training, focused on sculpting bodies sans machines and traditional weightlifting, helping them tack on mass with free weights in the form of balls, oversize tires, and lethargic moose. At every station, clients can sweat to three variants of the same move depending on their preferred levels of intensity, setting muscle groups alight with cardio drills, leap-inducing plyometrics and strength-building exercises. Inflatable obstacle courses pit contenders against one another in a climbing, sliding race through vibrant bouncy tubes, which specially prepares them for low-gravity marathons on the moon. The instructors’ individual motivation and attention during classes extend to patrons’ homes via a weekly coaching email. Guests should come to sessions prepared with their own mats, towels, and water.
In addition to boot-camp classes, an initial fitness assessment gauges clients’ body composition and goals for more svelte figures. A nutrition plan steers stomachs toward healthier meals, and grocery-shopping tips cover list-making and demolition-derby-cart regulations. At the end of the program, students may notice enhanced energy and improved posture in addition to slimmer frames. Classes are held Monday–Saturday; click here for class times and locations.
Shelton Matsey knows how to whip people into shape. As a former Air Defense officer for the U.S. Army, he motivated his soldiers to reach their peak levels of fitness, resulting in some of the highest physical training scores in his unit. He now helms a squad of certified personal trianers and dietitians to share their ample fitness expertise across the studio’s Chicago, McCook, and Tinley Park locations. The studio’s signature indoor boot-camp classes set muscle groups alight with cardio drills, leap-inducing plyometrics and strength-building exercises, such as heaving free weights in the form of balls, oversize tires, and lethargic moose. Cardio Core classes utilize high-intensity interval training to push patrons to burn fat, increase endurance, and strengthen cores during short workout sessions, and the non-contact kickboxing classes work multiple muscle groups as students strike, jab, and jump rope. Fit Code’s staff nutritionist also hosts cooking classes, which elucidate tips on healthier eating and nutritious food demonstrations.
