Fitness Center in Chicago

The Overview

CrossFit represents functional variety displayed in various bouts of intensity. 

At PXM we strive to incorporate many of the core elements of CrossFit in a way that enables us to grow and improve physically while still maintaining safety. We try to safely highlight and incorporate the basic human movements; squatting, pulling, pressing, jumping, lifting …

In doing so we try to incorporate different variations and individuality to each one of our workouts. Every class will be different in the experience yet consistent with improving an individual's overall physical performance. 

CrossFit is a great mix of strength work, high and low skill gymnastics, and general conditioning and endurance.

What to expect?

All of our CrossFit Classes are coach-led and follow a planned progression roughly 60 minutes in duration and follow this basic structure:

  • Specialized and detailed Warm up approach
  • Strength/Skill portion
  • Short to long duration workout pieces depending on the intended stimulus for the day.


Workouts can be adjusted in weight, intensity, and certain mechanics in order to scale to the experience and fitness levels of any individual, be it a total fitness beginner or elite competitive CrossFitter.

A certified Coach will guide you through warming up, followed by movement instruction and demonstration for the workout. The Coach will supervise and correct any movement performed by you during the workout.

Mobility

Inspired by Functional Range Conditioning - FRC, which is a trademarked system of mobility and joint control, our mobility class is one of the best ways to regain control over your body and obtain a deeper understanding of mobility concepts.

By incorporating this system we can help increase ones active, useable ranges of motion by simultaneously improving: -Articular/joint mobility -Strength & Resilience -Neurological control. In essence, this invaluable, and innovative training system improves the ability to control, and move one's own body.

Yoga

Yoga is an integral part of our product. From increased body awareness and mindfulness to developing greater movement range of motion we have been using this discipline to counterbalance some of the more intense hours in the week. 

Either using it as a sole approach to fitness or combining it with the array classes at PXM, Yoga has been proven to generate great results over time.

Aerobic Capacity

At PXM we understand how important it is to keep your body healthy and ready for one more day of training. That's why our product incorporates slow paced specialty classes designed to help you with recoverability and increase body awareness.

In this class we will spend time primarily on the cardio machines but not exclusive to other simple conditioning modalities; rowing, skiing, biking, running, double unders, etc.

This is a great class if you are trying to get better at basic elements of cardio-respiratory conditioning and endurance, learn a bit about pacing and effort control. Getting a good sweat session without many technical limitations one might experience otherwise.

CORE 360

What does training your CORE actually mean?

In nature Core training is a total body training concept that ensures proper body alignment and neuro-muscular connection that makes us more functional in our training or everyday life.

In this class we will explore different ways on how to connect our body and our limbs for better energy transfer and more force production. From proper breathing and bracing techniques, rotational power output, abs hypertrophy and stamina expect to broaden your understanding of your CORE function to the next level.

Great way to get stronger, more conditioned and educated while having fun at the same time!

Form & Function

Form and Function is a lower-intensity class dedicated to refreshing, developing and strengthening the foundational movement skills, individual progressions and efficient flow between movements.

These can then be applied to our traditional classes, open gym or other specialty programs. Each week highlights a different movement or skill to practice and integrate. Form and Function is open to and appropriate for all athlete levels and is a great time to get additional “deep-dive” coaching on technique and skills.

It’s a great space for newer athletes to brush up on “new” movements, or for any athlete looking to refine and tweak their performance and skills. All ability and skill levels.

We also focus on development of the important foundational elements of lifting by improving overall strength, power, speed, coordination and mobility!
