New Workouts

CHICAGO -- Sure, summer offers plenty of ways to get fit in the great outdoors... but fitness buffs in Chicago also have a couple of new classes to get whipped into shape. Both new workouts that Mark Nilsson highlights actually revive a 'retro' exercise routine. Iron and Oar in Lakeview combines a great cardio routine on the rowing machine with intense muscle sculpting exercises. Sculpt and Shred Fitness in the Beverly neighborhood offers a signature class based on the Japanese Martial art of Kendo. In this class, the participants wield a sword, to get whipped into shape.
