All appointments have a 24-hour cancellation AND rescheduling policy.
All classes have a 12-hour cancellation AND rescheduling policy.
All memberships require a 30-day written cancellation notice. Memberships require a 3-month minimum commitment.
We offer three different memberships. A 30 minute, 45 minute, and a 60 minute option. All require a credit card on file for an automatic payment every 30 days. You receive 4 sessions per month in a package at our “member” rate that don’t rollover to the next month. Any additional sessions booked beyond those 4 are charged as single sessions at “member” rate. Members have the ability to book out in advance as much as they desire without being charged ahead of time. You will be charged upon completion of your session. Members also get a special rate for group classes and 20% off merchandise.
30 min sessions are a comprehensive and efficient strength training session. 45 min sessions build upon the comprehensive and efficient strength training sessions by giving us a little bit more time to address specific needs and supplement some conditioning intervals.
As coaches we always follow evidence based research. The current research suggests strength training 3-4x/ week for optimal results. Clients who see the best results are consistently training at least 3x/ week.
For River North: You will find ample “Pay to Park” metered parking directly outside on Erie St, as well as surrounding streets. For those of you looking to train in the AM, these spots are free prior to 9AM.
For Lincoln Park: There is ample amounts of free parking on both Southport and Kingsbury.
Wear athletic clothing, bring a water bottle (optional as we have a filtered water fountain and water for sale in our cooler) and athletic footwear. We recommend cross training shoes over running shoes.
We have full-service locker rooms with showers, lockers (built-in code system – no lock needed!) fresh towels, salon supplied hair-care products, and your standard toiletries.
We suggest having even a small meal or snack before training. We DO NOT recommend pre-workout supplements or high doses of caffeine before training to reduce nausea and rapid heart rates. These sessions are usually a little quicker pace than working out on your own. We recommend training with us for a while before testing any pre-workout supplements.
