South Loop Supporting change
“Community” is about more than just the relationships within our gym.
We are actively involved in initatives supporting our local neighborhoods.
WHAT IS "SOUTH LOOP SUPPORTING CHANGE"?
“South Loop Supporting Change” is our public commitment to improve our local communities through fitness, coaching, and nutrition.
Expert guidance has a profound capacity to change lives, but this coaching is often walled off from the people who would benefit the most. We invest our time in organizations that bring coaching to groups who may not otherwise have access.
We also donate our time to organizations working in local Chicago communities.
