WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

All Power Sculpt Fitness studio classes are held at 3119 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago – please enter through this door.  If you are attending an indoor cycling class, please enter at our Power Cycle entrance located at 3120 N. Greenview. Doors open 5 minutes before your class start time and lock immediately as class begins…sorry but we cannot accept latecomers.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT CLASS?

An incredibly challenging and fast-paced workout from the first second of class to the last! PSF is a group fitness studio that offers you HUGE variety by delivering a massive amount of formats, all extremely intense and effective. Most all classes consist of some form of high-intensity resistance training designed to completely reshape each muscle group, along with killer cardio bursts designed to burn a ton of calories. Awesome music and extremely time-efficient, our classes will leave you feeling accomplished! See our Schedule for specific class descriptions.

WHY ARE ALL OF YOUR CLASSES 30 MINUTES?

Our 30-minute classes are TOUGH! If you honestly give it 100% for the entire workout, you will find 30 minutes to definitely be “enough” in most cases, even for seasoned athletes. We will push you HARD every class. For those who wish to workout longer, we typically place our classes immediately back-to-back so you can create your own mega-workout. We also believe that by offering a variety of session times and formats, we can accommodate more clients at our prime times.

IS THIS FOR ANY FITNESS LEVEL?

PSF classes are challenging because they work! Most all of our classes are suitable for any fitness level IF you are motivated and appropriate modifications can be provided.  Always let us know if you need specific alternatives to any exercise or have any limitations well before class begins. Your instructor will encourage and challenge you while insisting you listen to your body while still being honest with your effort level. CLICK HERE to view current class recommendations. If you’re still unsure, try a low-impact class first – they aren’t necessarily ‘easier’ but you might find them to be a great starting place. Contact us any time for specific class recommendations.

WHAT ARE YOUR CLASS CAPACITIES?

It depends on the class format and space needed. All class sessions are thoughtfully planned out to provide adequate distancing between clients whenever possible. We have found through social distancing that certain classes are actually more productive with less clients than were allowed pre-COVID…so we of course are using this new knowledge to formulate the best workout experience possible!

WHEN DOES CLASS REGISTRATION OPEN?

Currently, our class sign-up begins the day before.

WHAT CLASS PACKAGES DO YOU OFFER?

You are able to purchase a single session/workout or packages of 5 or 10 workouts. All classes credit packages expire 12/31/22.  Virtual PSF members receive a discount on our 10-packs and we also offer seasonal specials to our email subscribers.

DO YOU OFFER AN UNLIMITED PASS?

At this time we do not. We do offer a special tier of our Virtual PSF subscription that includes a limited number of in-studio workouts at a huge discount.

DO YOU OFFER A FREE TRIAL?

Currently we do no offer a free trial class.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Comfortable workout clothes and appropriate athletic cross-training shoes (our barre, pilates and yoga classes do not require shoes). If you are taking a cycling class, our bikes accept shoes with SPD clips. Come ready to go or at least ready for a quick change! We are no-nonsense and because our workouts are so effective, we don’t waste any time getting started.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

A water bottle and a towel – everything else is provided! If you are pregnant or have a medical condition, be sure to bring a required physician release before your first class so you can participate.

WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

We have an eight (8) hour cancellation window to avoid a ‘late cancel’ which means you lose the class credit used to book the missed session.  To cancel, simply login in to your account and cancel your session.

HOW DOES THE WAITLIST WORK?

If you try to register for a class and the class is full, then you will be given the option to join the waitlist. Only sign up for the waitlist if you plan on being able to take the class as it should be viewed equal to making a reservation. We automatically add people from the waitlist once a class spot opens up to 2 hours before the class start time and at any time of the day or night. You can check your waitlist status by visiting your account.

*Class credits are required to join a waitlist and not refunded if you do not get into class, but you can use the class credit for a future reservation.

*If a waitlist reservation is UNPAID, and you get into the class, you will automatically be charged for the class credit(s) needed to remain on this roster.

DO YOU HAVE CYCLING PERFORMANCE DISPLAYS?

Yes! Our cycling studio is equipped with monitors that display each bike’s performance metrics in real-time. This allows for an enhanced workout experience…and quicker results! After each cycle session you will receive a detailed email with all of our workout stats..

*PLEASE NOTE* Due to COVID-19, your cycle class temporarily may not have performance emails. If this is a dealbreaker for you, please do not sign-up.

WHAT IS VIRTUAL PSF?

Virtual PSF is our online community of PSF rockstars who workout with us at home or enjoy a hybrid on in-studio and online workouts. We typically post 3 BRAND-NEW live-streamed workouts daily and since it’s inception, we have posted over 2,000 BRAND-NEW Virtual PSF workouts!

Virtual PSF workouts are perfect for those who want the BEST classes but have a limited schedule to workout…they can crush their classes on their own terms! People love Virtual PSF because they never have to miss a class and they can take PSF with them wherever they go.

We also offer free nutrition tips, recipes, meal plans as well as super popular fitness challenges guaranteed to keep you on track.

As a Virtual PSF subscriber you get discounts on certain in-studio class credit packages as well as access to accountability challenges.

WILL YOU LIVESTREAM AN IN-STUDIO CLASS THAT I AM IN?

Possibly. This is included in our waiver. We cannot promise you will not be visible during a livestream but it would be highly unusual to be seen. We always aim for the instructor to only be seen.

DO YOU HAVE NUTRITION PROGRAMMING?

Yes! We work closely with our culinary dietitian Sara Haas, RDN, LDN to formulate complimentary nutrition challenges, disperse amazing recipes and offer diet motivation. In addition, we offer individualized meal plans and accountability through our unique programming. CLICK HERE to learn more.

Sometimes it’s the little things! If you’re neglecting those itty bitty areas, sooner or later you’ll form an injury or at best, an imbalance. 🫠 Simple shoulder rotation, flexion and extension with a light resistance band are an awesome example of how to target weak spots that regular strength training might miss! 💪🏻 #psfchicago #armworkout #shoulderworkout #fitspo #resistancebands #weighttraining #strength #workoutmotivation ...

These Low-Carb Chicken Burrito Bowls come together in just about 30 minutes, for a fast and easy dinner. Instead of using rice, these bowls are made with cauliflower “rice”, which is a low-carb alternative that is easy to prepare in the Instant Pot. No food processor necessary!

⚡️INGREDIENTS⚡️

1 cup prepared salsa
1 pound boneless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and pepper
1/2 head cauliflower , cut into florets (about 10 ounces)
TOPPING IDEAS
shredded lettuce
chopped tomatoes
green onions
shredded cheese
black beans

⚡️INSTRUCTIONS⚡️

1. Pour the salsa into the bottom of the Instant Pot and place the chicken breasts on top. Sprinkle a 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, plus salt and pepper over the top, but do not stir.

2. Place a 2.5-inch trivet over the chicken, then put an oven-safe bowl that is 7-inches in diameter on top of that. (I use 4-cup porcelain salad bowls from West Elm or a round glass storage container.) Pour the cauliflower florets into the bowl.

3. Secure the lid to the Instant Pot the move the steam release valve to Sealing. Select Manual or Pressure Cook (the button varies by model) to cook on high pressure for 4 minutes. When the cooking cycle is complete, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes before moving the steam release valve to Venting. (The screen will read LO:10 when the pressure has released for 10 minutes.) When the floating valve drops, to signal that the pressure has been released, you can safely remove the lid.

4. Use oven mitts to remove the bowl of cooked cauliflower and the trivet, then use tongs to transfer the cooked chicken to a cutting board to rest for a few minutes. Use a potato masher to break up the cooked cauliflower into rice-like pieces. Season the rice to taste with a little salt and pepper.

5. Use two forks to shred the chicken on the cutting board, then transfer it back to the salsa in the Instant Pot and give it a stir to coat well. To serve the bowls, place some of the cauliflower "rice" in a bowl, top with some of the shredded chicken and salsa mixture, and other toppings like lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, and avocado.
