OUR GROUP CLASS PROGRAMS
CrossFit is a strength & conditioning program that will get you fit more quickly than just about anything else out there.
Want to lean out? Build some muscle? Challenge yourself daily while constantly learning new things? Find a community to hold you accountable for your training?
CrossFit may be the thing for you.
Weightlifting focuses on developing strength, skill, technique and explosiveness in the snatch and the clean & jerk.
For some, weightlifting is a sport. for others, it's a hobby. The path to mastery is long and fulfilling either way.
OUR INDIVIDUALIZED PROGRAMS
If you want the fastest most personalized approach to reaching your fitness goals, nothing beats the individualization and customization of personal training.
All you have to do is show up and execute the plan - we take care of all of the thinking for you.
You only spend a few hours per week in the gym - what you do outside of the gym is just as important for your long-term results as what you do in the gym.
Get some help cutting through all the noise and confusion and get your nutrition handled.
CURIOUS ABOUT HOW TO GET STARTED AT THE BEST CROSSFIT IN CHICAGO?
Are you ready to come in and find out what we do at SLSC?
Everyone starts with a consultation with one of our coaches. During your consultation, you will discuss your background, your goals, and what you're hoping to get out of your training program.
From there, the path to getting started depends on your level of fitness experience.
If you're new to training, we generally recommend that you go through our Foundational Elements program (6 one-on-one sessions) before starting with classes.
If you have training experience but are new to CrossFit, we recommend that you go through our Accelerated Elements program (4 one-on-one sessions) before starting with classes.
If you have more than 3 months of CrossFit experience, we are happy to offer you a free class after your consultation. From there, you can sign up for a trial week to see if the gym is a good fit for you.
If you're interested in more personalized services like one-on-one training, small group training, program design or nutrition coaching, we can discuss that during your consultation as well.

WE HAVE SOME OF THE MOST HIGHLY QUALIFIED COACHES IN THE BUSINESS
While having a laundry list of certifications doesn't necessarily mean you're a great coach, it certainly helps.
More importantly, we have a serious commitment to continuing education and learning from the best minds in our field in order to elevate our coaching skill set.
WANT TO RECEIVE OUR WEEKLY WORKOUTS?
Todd Nief, Founder - South Loop Strength & Conditioning
Training can sometimes feel like throwing a bunch of random tactics at a wall and seeing what sticks. Our weekly programming is developed based upon our years of expertise and has been proven to get results - so quit guessing in the gym and try something that works.
So, we've decided to offer the entire week of training to anyone who wants it.
While our greatest asset is our coaches and their ability to hold people in our classes to a consistently high standard, the actual training program itself is something that takes years of continuing education and hands-on experience to develop.
If you want to get our workouts delivered on a weekly basis, just enter your e-mail address below and we will loop you in on our training program every Sunday.
People have several competing goals and desires in the gym.
Aspirationally, we want to challenge ourselves consistently. We want to be part of a community. We want to find fulfillment in our ability to overcome obstacles and commit to self-improvement.
We also want to take care of our future self. We want to maintain our health. We want to play with our (potentially future) kids. And, we want the results of our yearly physical to keep looking good.
And, the vain side of us wants to lose weight, tone up, and get ripped - but we might talk around it by saying that we want to build our confidence.
However, there's a disconnect between what people want in the abstract - and what actually motivates them to take action in the short term.
This is why you see so many flashy, trendy products and fads come and go.
Unfortunately, the long-term approach and best practices aren't always the things that get the most likes, the most shares, or the most sales.
But, at SLSC, we're devoted to best practices - independent of whether or not those are the things that get us the most attention in the short term.
One of the things that we take pride in is our programming.
Most of our members in our group classes come to us to look good, feel good, and move well over the long-term.
They also come to us because they want to do CrossFit - and they enjoy the challenge of training and pushing themselves.
We've worked hard to find the balance between progressing people in their fitness, challenging them on a consistent basis with difficult training, and getting them the aesthetic results that they're seeking.
We make our workouts freely available on our training blog, but many people like to have an entire week of training upfront so that they can plan accordingly throughout the week.

MEET OUR MEMBERS
Don't just take it from us - hear from our members about what their fears, concerns and hesitations were - and what they found when they got started.
There's no such thing as a perfect time, and you'll learn more and get more out of coming in to chat with one of our coaches than you will in hundreds of hours of continued research.
Besides, your first consult is on the house. We're happy to invest in spending some time with you so that you can find out if we are who we say we are (since we know lots of people have been burned by disingenuous marketing in the fitness industry in the past).
Come see what it's all about.
DON'T WAIT FOR THE PERFECT TIME TO GET STARTED.
