The days of just worrying about you and trying to get in shape are over. As of now, this approach is obviously not working. Not only are we becoming fatter ourselves, but so are our brothers, sisters, wives, and kids. The media usually sticks to blaming McDonald’s, high fat foods, and video games for our constant weight gain and health issues that follow. Instead of making excuses and blaming, we should take a stand for ourselves and our families. Not only by learning how to eat healthier, but by staying active. At Chicago Family Fit, we promote being active as a whole family, because everyone needs to be healthier and involved in the solution. Some ways that we go about this are:
- Family Friendly Programming-We encourage exercising together! If bringing your kids along to workout with you makes you work harder, then we are all for it. Sometimes having the motivation from training with your spouse, brother/sister, or close friend will help to get you to the next level. In addition to offering family training, we also have group exercise classes that are all age appropriate. This allows you to have fun in a judgment free environment…and even bring your kids along too!
- No Machine Training- One problem when it comes to multiple ages/abilities working out together is equipment. Not everyone is able to safely operate equipment, lift heavy weights, or run for miles on a treadmill. At Chicago Family Fit we realize this, and that’s why we don’t have a lot of machines in our facility. Instead we focus on using your body and only the equipment that is appropriate for your goals.
- Custom Programing -As a boutique style facility, we are able to be flexible and cater to your needs more than a big box facility. Sometimes traditional hours do not work for you and your schedule, and that’s okay with us. We pride ourselves on working around your schedule to make fitness possible by offering early morning, evening, and hours on both Saturdays and Sundays.
The next time that you look in the mirror and decide that you need to do something about it, don’t just stop at yourself. Take the first step in improving the health of the whole family, and that starts with exercise and dietary change. At Chicago Family Fit, we offer a complimentary consultation to see what we can do for your unique situation. Please contact us at email@example.com or via phone at (773) 706-8705.
