Daily Herald: Downsize Gym

It's also not for the faint-of-heart: While instructors are supportive and try not to come across as drill sergeants, they are nonetheless pushing their clients.

"The very first night, I wanted to quit. It was very intense," said one member.

This is a co-ed gym, but more women have signed up so far in Naperville.
