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 incredible workout! PSF is a group fitness studio that offers you HUGE variety by delivering a massive amount of formats, all extremely challenging and effective. Most all class 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. 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 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. We have found through social distancing that certain classes are 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. Class registration opens up at 12am the day before for Virtual PSF subscribers. Everyone else must wait until (or before) 12pm the day before. If you try to sign-up for class before this time, you will get an error message. To gain priority in-studio early booking privileges, you need to be a Virtual PSF subscriber.

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 within 3 months of purchase. 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. If you are not fully vaccinated for COVID-19, please wear a mask during your workout to protect yourself.

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 HEART RATE MONITORING?

Yes! Our bikes, cycling performance system and main studio system all read ANT+/Bluetooth heart rate monitors. We sell heart rate straps at our front desk (limited supply). Before your session, register your heart rate strap with your instructor and you will receive not only heart rate feedback during your workout, but post-class you will receive an email summary of your average and maximum heart rates, how long you worked in each of your age-specific heart rate zones and calories burned. If no one has notified the instructor that they are heart rate monitoring, the system will not be used, so please make sure to inform your teacher well before class begins!

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?

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.

If you cook 👩‍🍳, you need oil!

And if you eat 🍴, you need oil!

But what oil should you use for what? It’s confusing 🤔, so let us help!!!

COOKING OILS
If you’re doing high-heat cooking, like stir-frying, use a high smoke-point oil - peanut or sesame oil are perfection.

What about for sautéing? Use avocado 🥑, canola and olive oil.

And what about for the salad dressing or finishing dishes? Choose a low-smoke point oil, like any nut or seed oil or EVOO. Any of the oils you use for sautéing and stir-frying can also be used here!

Now you know! 😉

Is coffee ☕️ part of your morning routine?

We love our cup of pure joy 🤩 too and luckily, it comes with some health benefits!

Research points to the caffeine in coffee for improvement in our mood, memory and cognitive function. And all of those antioxidants it contains help keep our cells healthy, protecting us from illness and disease.

But remember, too much of a good thing isn’t good. Stick to one or two (8-ounce) cups a day to keep dehydration and jittery behavior at bay. And keep it simple; skip all of the sugar and cream and instead, pick a milk or plain, plant-based milk and sweeten with warm spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg and turmeric.

Kale is HOT! 🔥

And it’s back like crop tops 🎽and over-sized sweatshirts!

Okay, so maybe kale 🥬 isn’t as trendy as it used to be, but this mighty green should ALWAYS be on your grocery list and here’s why:

1️⃣ That dark green color = antioxidants! Which unlike crop tops, keep your body’s cells healthy, preventing yucky stuff like cancer.
2️⃣ Oh heyyy fiber! That’s right, kale packs plenty of what we like to call “nature’s broom.” Think if it like a hug for your gut!
3️⃣ Vitamin C - yep, kale’s got that too! Which awesome because this magical vitamin helps boost immunity - and we could all use a healthy dose of immunity right now. 😉
