South Loop Strength and Conditioning is a community of experts and athletes that are here to get to know you, understand where you’re at, and get you to the next level of fitness—so that you’ll be feeling better and looking great in no time.
Community that supports you
The most unique aspect of South Loop Strength & Conditioning is our amazing community. We’re like a family and we have open arms to new members. When it comes to getting in shape, nothing makes the challenge easier than knowing that you’re surrounded by friends who are working on the same things together.
Coaches who care
Fitness is a journey—and it’s important to have a guide. Our coaches will get to know you, follow your progress and encourage you along on your way to being happier and healthier.
Experts who know
There’s a lot of confusion and conflicting ideas about getting in shape: Low fat diet? Low carb diet? Long distance running? Lifting weights? But there’s one thing that’s always clear: results. Our coaches have years of experience paying attention to and working closely with athletes and seeing directly what works. Let them share that wisdom with you.
“I've met a lot of cool people and really enjoy being around people who care about being healthier, better versions of themselves.”
“I wrestled with checking out a class for a couple of weeks until one day I just decided to go. I dropped in on a Tuesday after working out at another gym. My first class was 5:30 am, the Thursday before Christmas in 2012 and I've been hooked ever since.” Isaam Read more from Isaam
Explore what we have to offer
A group of like-minded people working hard together is a powerful thing. Most training at South Loop Strength & Conditioning occurs in a group setting. Classes run in hour-long time blocks and contain a warm-up, mobility work, instructions on technique, and a workout of the day. The workout changes every day and is easily modified to match any fitness level.
Advanced athletes and those with specific needs can sign up for personal training. Group classes cover technique and involve individual attention but there’s no substitute for dedicated one-on-one time when it comes to drilling into the details of an athlete’s individual goals.
Our group classes are fantastic for anyone looking to achieve superior, well-rounded fitness. But for those who want to take their fitness journey to the next level, we offer custom program design services that can be tailored to any goals or needs you may have, be they structural balance, preparation for a specific sport or otherwise.
When it comes to fitness, exercise is only part of the picture. The other cornerstone of health and achievement is nutrition. Work with our experienced coaches to develop a dietary regimen that will increase performance, reduce fatigue and sculpt your physique.
Want to drop in? Great! If you're a travelling CrossFitter, you can join any of our classes for $20.
If you're a Chicagoan curious about how we do things at South Loop Strength & Conditioning, we have a free intro class every Sunday at 11:00 am. We’d love to have you!

"The camaraderie amongst all the coaches and members is great. When you come to the gym, it’s absolutely not just about workouts, it’s about people who are looking out for each other and who all want to achieve a common goal of overall health." Joe M.
"The coaches helped me see that I'm actually stronger and have become fitter that I ever thought I would be. Also, there is a great feeling in knowing that I completed workouts that 1 year ago I couldn’t accomplish." Keshia K.
