Looking for the best CrossFit gym in chicago? Here's how to get started.
Set up a time to meet with one of our coaches, check out our location, and discuss your background and your training goals.
Here’s what the process of getting started looks like at SLSC.
The first step for 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.

CURIOUS ABOUT OUR RATES?
One of the most common questions people have before getting started is…”So, what does all of this cost?”
Todd Nief, Founder – South Loop Strength & Conditioning
We’ve got a few different options for getting started at SLSC.
Our onboarding packages all involve some one-on-one training sessions with a coach – since making sure you feel comfortable and safe with all of the movements that we do is one of our top priorities for all new members.
After going through the one-on-one sessions, our members then move on to either our group classes or one of our more personalized training tracks.
For our group classes, we have both unlimited monthly visit options as well as limited visits options.
For our personalized training, we have either packages of personal training sessions, or hybrid options that include both our group classes and more individualized work with a coach.
There’s a lot more information on this process on our “What to Expect” page.
When choosing a gym, the most important thing is to find a gym and a community that is a good fit with your background and your goals.
Do you feel comfortable with the community? Is the location convenient – so you’re able to attend regularly? Are you getting consistent feedback from the coaching staff to keep you progressing safely?
And, yes, is the investment in your budget?
Every gym has a slightly different character to it, so don’t be afraid to evaluate the options and figure out where you’ll get the best results.

We have morning classes, a noon class, and afternoon and evening classes every weekday. We also have classes on Saturday mornings. You can check out our full class schedule here.
We offer open gym times throughout the day, including during class times. The gym is pretty busy during peak hours in the evening, though.
We have several members who follow their own programming using our facility — including weightlifters, powerlifters, and athletes training for specific sports.
Note that we do not have separate membership rates for members who choose to do open gym instead of our group classes.
We like to think of this like taking guitar lessons.
Most of us wouldn’t say, “I need to learn to play guitar before I start taking guitar lessons.”
Even though there’s an abundance of free guitar lessons available on YouTube from highly qualified teachers, most of us recognize that our progress would be faster if we worked with a coach on our specific issues and goals.
Plus, we’d probably avoid picking up most of the bad habits that it’s very easy for beginners to fall into.
Similarly, working with a team of qualified coaches is going to be the best and fastest way to reach your fitness goals.
Everyone starts somewhere, and we are here to meet you where you’re at and guide you on your fitness journey.
