You would never know that the new The Mercury Method is a fitness club from its unassuming facade. There’s a very lounge-y and sexy vibe to this new space and I would not have known that it is a fitness club if not for the launch party invitation.
California native fitness video star and exercise expert Lara Hudson chose Chicago to launch her new signature workout in a state-of-the-art Wicker Park Mercury Method facility. The facility is outfitted with warm ambient lighting, radiant heated floors, private changing rooms, a rainfall shower, 14-speaker sound system, and wall-to-wall glowing backlit mirrors.
“More intention in movement” is how Mercury Method trainer Felicia Holman described this new workout. She also mentioned that the workout is a combination of Yoga and Pilates through reflex coordination for strength, agility, and with the conscious deeper muscular control and endurance conditioning.
There are three different 60-minute classes to choose from:
Build STRENGTH and definition in the major muscle groups, specifically the shoulders, back, abdominal and legs. During this intense workout, you’ll chisel and sculpt the larger ‘power’ muscles and increase the body’s comprehensive explosiveness and performance.
CONTROL casts its focus on the Core – the deep abdominals and lower back, as well as the shoulder and hip stabilizers. During this ab-centric class, you’ll attain uniform strength, prevent injury, improve balance, and create a sleek and sculpted midsection.
Promote cardiovascular strength and weight loss while refining your entire physique in this flow-based STAMINA class. Lose weight, burn fat, gain muscle definition, and strengthen the heart and lungs, all while minimizing compression to the body’s back and joints.
The Mercury Method is located at 1444 N. Milwaukee and new clients can purchase a First-Time Only package of 6 classes in 6 days for only $6. Perfect way to give the new workout a try!
