Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 06, 2012
A local Chicago fitness gym may not be as popular as Best Buy or Target during the holiday shopping season, but in many ways, Chicago gyms offer the most thoughtful gifts. Chi-Town Boot Camps, a franchise with gyms in Arlington Heights, Evanston, Lakeview, Schaumburg and Chicago, is offering a special holiday promotion where individuals receive a nutrition counseling session with a certified nutritionist where a customized, step-by-step, monthly meal plan is mapped out for them. They’ll also receive fitness testing and set a few goals to track as the weeks progress. Finally, they get a week of free boot camp sessions. Plus, for every person referred, the boot camp participant receives a free month of classes!
“People who are conscientious about their weight want to know that they have people they love supporting their goals,” explains Chicago Gym Owner Craig Kastning. “For $2, you can partner with your sibling, your spouse, your parent, or a friend and work toward your fitness goals together. Studies show that people are more effective at weight loss when they have a buddy. I can’t think of a more meaningful gift than your time, love and support.”
Boot camp classes use well-known fat-burning methods such as interval training and metabolic resistance training to melt the pounds away. The routines are easy-to-follow, using reps of basic dynamic moves like lunges, squats and jumps. The Chicago personal trainer is often set up with fun obstacle courses that emphasize agility or Bosu balls which condition the core. Program participants look forward to their time spent at the Chi-Town Boot Camps Chicago gym because they get a challenging workout and socialization time with their friends.
The diet program does not rely on supplements or shakes, but instead, it relies on sound nutritional principles like replacing refined carbs with complex cards, eating more low-fat yogurt, choosing healthy snacks, and adding more lean protein. Everything is spelled out step-by-step. All people have to do is follow the Chicago gym’s personalized recommendations. People with cardiac conditions, diabetes, or dairy and gluten allergies can have their meal plans tailored to meet their unique needs as well.
“People like tangible gifts they can wrap and give, so I invite people to visit http://www.ChiTownBootCampsblog.com or come down to our Chicago gym any time before Christmas to get gift certificate stocking stuffers or promotional baskets we’ve made up,” Kastning says. “We want to help local residents make the holidays extra special and start off their New Year right.”
