COVID-19 FAQS

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

All Power Sculpt Fitness studio classes are held at 3119 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago.  If you are attending an indoor cycling class, please enter at our Power Cycle entrance located at 3120 N. Greenview.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT CLASS?

An incredible workout! Most all formats consist of resistance training designed to completely reshape each muscle group, along with cardio bursts designed to burn a ton of calories. Awesome music and always challenging, our classes will leave you feeling accomplished! See our Schedule for specific class descriptions.

IS THIS FOR ANY FITNESS LEVEL?

PSF classes are challenging because they work! Most all of ourclasses are suitable any fitness level and appropriate modifications can be provided.  Always let us know if you need specific alternatives to any exercise or have any limitations. Your instructor will encourage and challenge you while insisting you listen to your body. CLICK HERE to view current class recommendations. If you’re still unsure, try an Express class first – they aren’t necessarily ‘easier’ but they are shorter. Contact us any time for specific class recommendations.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Easy & Healthy Breakfast Burrito

INGREDIENTS
🔹2 teaspoons canola oil
🔹1/2 small red onion, diced (1 cup)
🔹1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
🔹1 cup drained, rinsed canned black beans, preferably low-sodium
🔹1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
🔹Salt and freshly ground black pepper
🔹4 eggs and 4 egg whites
🔹1/3 cup (about 1 1/2 ounce) shredded pepper Jack cheese
🔹Nonstick cooking spray
🔹4 (10 inch) whole wheat tortillas (burrito size)
🔹1/4 cup reduced fat-free sour cream or 2 percent plain Greek yogurt
🔹1/4 cup salsa
🔹1 large tomato, (4 ounces) seeded and diced
🔹1 small avocado (4 ounces), cubed
🔹Hot sauce

DIRECTIONS
🔹Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over a medium-high heat. 🔹Cook the onions and peppers until onions are softened and peppers are slightly charred, about 8 minutes. Add black beans and red pepper flakes and cook until warmed through, another 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a dish.
🔹Whisk together the eggs and egg whites then stir in the cheese. Spray the skillet with cooking spray, and reheat the skillet over a medium heat. Reduce heat to low and add eggs, scrambling until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Spread each tortilla with 1 tablespoon each sour cream (or yogurt) and salsa, then layer with 1/4 of the black bean mixture, 1/4 of the scrambled eggs, some diced tomato and 1/4 of the avocado. Season, to taste, with hot sauce. Roll up burrito-style and serve.

At only 5 ingredients...this Grilled Salmon with Sweet Peppers dinner is going to be an EASY way to please everyone in the family! Try it TONIGHT!

INGREDIENTS

1 ¼ pounds skin-on salmon fillet, cut into 4 portions
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 pound sweet mini bell peppers
2 medium red onions, quartered

DIRECTIONS

Step 1
Preheat a gas grill to high, build a fire in a charcoal grill or build a campfire and let it burn down to high heat (about 500 degrees F).

Step 2
Brush or drizzle salmon with oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle peppers and onions with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Step 3
Oil the grill rack. Place the salmon, skin-side up, on the grill, along with the peppers and onions. Grill the salmon until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a metal spatula, gently nudge one of the pieces: it should release from the grill without much force, but if it feels stuck, continue cooking for another minute. When the salmon releases easily, flip and continue cooking until browned and the flesh is opaque, about 3 minutes more. Cook the peppers and onions, turning frequently, until tender and well browned, 8 to 10 minutes total.

Step 4
Serve the salmon with the vegetables.

Throw away any of those old oatmeal packets and buy a large container of rolled oats instead — this will ensure that you can build your oats from the ground up using only the best ingredients for your body. Once you’ve got your basics, you’ll want to take a look at these seven ways that you can sneak protein into your oatmeal to ensure that your breakfast has as much muscle-building power as possible.

1. Skip the water — cook your oatmeal with milk

Though you may have traditionally made your oatmeal with water, try using skim or whole milk for an added protein boost.

2. Stir in nut and seed butters

One of the easiest and tastiest ways to improve the protein content of your oatmeal is to add in peanut butter, almond butter, or cashew butter to any of your traditional recipes.

3. Fold in Greek yogurt

Greek yogurt can add a tangy flavor and luxurious, silky texture to your oatmeal. While regular yogurt can also add a creamy texture and a bit of protein into the mix, Greek yogurt is far superior in the protein department.

4. Top it off with almonds, walnuts, or pistachios

Much like nut butters, adding in nuts to your oatmeal not only will give you that extra protein you’re looking for, but it also add texture and flavor, making your meal feel more satisfying and complete.

5. Add flaxseeds or chia seeds

They may not look like much in the bag, but seeds such as chia and flax can add a powerful health boost to your oatmeal while also bringing a nutty flavor and crunchy texture to your dish.

6. Stir in protein powder after cooking

If you thought that protein powder was reserved for smoothies and shakes, think again — you can make your oatmeal using plain rolled oats and milk, and then once the cooking process has finished, stir in a protein powder of your choice for added health benefits and flavoring.

7. Go savory

Not all oatmeal has to be sweet — though the packets of apple cinnamon oatmeal may still reside in your mind, you can make a delicious and protein-packed meal using savory ingredients with your oatmeal instead. A simple and savory protein-filled oatmeal recipe example can use black forest ham, Gruyere cheese, and an egg on top.
