After taking on a high-energy workout regimen, many people discover they have the strength to move mountains and the discipline not to pick fights with volcanoes. Make your muscles mighty like magma with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 10-session pass to Josh Rogers's High-Five Workout from Rogers Fit Squad at Hi-Fi Fitness Factory on North Orleans Street (a $120 value). Classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Rogers Fit Squad's co-founder Joshua Rogers draws from his years of experience as a professional fitness instructor, Marine, and martial artist to craft a fun, effective, and high-energy exercise program. During each one-hour drop-in class, Rogers leads the way as muscle-molders embark on a fist-pumping regimen that incorporates circuit training, kettlebell juggling, plyometric training, and calisthenics to unleash a surprise attack on excess calories. As they sweat, pupils draw inspiration from the mutual bonds of respect within the group, the program's powerful soundtrack, and wallet-sized photos of Peter Fonda arm-curling a carp. Upon completing 10 sessions under the well-defined wings of an experienced fitness expert, students may notice increased energy and a boost to their overall cardiac health.
Rogers Fit Squad
Joshua Rogers and Karl Geweniger founded Rogers Fit Squad as a fitness studio and media company concentrating on the FUSION program. Mixed martial arts fighter, former marine, and certified instructor Josh Rogers designed FUSION as a total body cardio routine. The program uses real MMA fighting combinations to create six short, high-energy workouts designed to burn calories and tone and strengthen core muscles more effectively than doing sit-ups in drying concrete. FUSION is available in the form of a DVD, or as a personal workout with Rogers himself. Rogers honed his martial arts skills by training in disciplines including Karate, Brazilian Jiu-Jistu, and kickboxing, and worked as a certified instructor through the Chicago Parks District.
