Fitness Trends 2023: What’s Hot in Chicago’s Fitness Scene?

The fitness landscape is ever-evolving. As we delve into the third quarter of 2023, we uncover the latest fitness trends shaping Chicago’s workout culture. Let’s take a look at these trends, highlighting some local businesses where you can join in on the action.

1. Hybrid Fitness Classes

Hybrid fitness classes, which combine different workout styles, have taken Chicago by storm. Studios like Studio Three offer a mix of cycling, yoga, and HIIT under one roof. Meanwhile, SWEAT Fitness Studios provides classes that blend functional training with Pilates for a comprehensive workout.

2. Virtual Reality (VR) Workouts

Advancements in technology have paved the way for VR workouts. Places like VR Fitness Chicago are leading the charge, offering an immersive, game-like experience that makes exercise fun.

3. Outdoor Group Training

Outdoor group training has surged in popularity, partly fueled by the pandemic. Chicago River Paddle  provides group kayak workouts, while Nike Chicago’s Run Club offers regular outdoor group running sessions. Also, Fitness Formula Clubs have started offering outdoor boot camps in various local parks.

4. Wellness-Based Fitness

Wellness-based fitness programs that integrate mindfulness practices with physical workouts are catching on. Bottom Line Yoga offers wellness-based classes, combining yoga with strength training. Reach Yoga in Glencoe promotes programs that combine yoga postures with mindfulness meditation.

5. Boutique Fitness Studios

Boutique fitness studios are the new favorites in Chicago. Shred415, a locally-born studio, combines strength training and treadmill work for a dynamic workout. Title Boxing Club in West Loop, offers boxing and kickboxing classes that are both intense and engaging.

6. Tech-Driven Home Workouts

Smart fitness equipment is revolutionizing home workouts. Peloton‘s showroom in the Westfield Old Orchard mall allows you to experience their cutting-edge exercise bikes. Best Buy in Bucktown is a great place to check out the newest in Mirror workouts and Tonal strength training systems.
