VOTE: Where Do You Break a Sweat?

Fitness buffs! Support your favorite village businesses with a vote in our poll.

Patch wants to know who Lisle residents designate their 'go-to' businesses and services.

Last week we asked you where you like to . This week's poll topic is for the fitness-minded: where are you going to break a sweat? I don't care if you lift weights, zumba, run, row, shoot hoops, or tap dance. Where do you go? More importantly, why? Did you sign up because of the equipment, the staff, or other features? What activities do you think make the most effective workout?

 

How to vote
Because your answer may require some elaboration, this week's voting will be by write-in. Sign up on Patch and leave a comment below, or follow the links to write a review for the businesses listed.

Clubs targeted exclusively toward swimming or water aerobics will be included in a future poll. We did, however, include Contempo Dance Academy in this list of options:

  • Efficient Fitness personal training and boot camp, 2200 Ogden Ave., Suite 300
  • (please specify fitness center or other activities)

 

Voting closes at noon on Friday.

Readers aren't confined to these options. If you frequent a gym outside of town (from a chain like Planet Fitness to a private club), belong to an intramural team, or just have a favorite running or biking route through town, share those, too!

EDITOR'S NOTE: The Best Of series is for-fun purposes only. Voters are on the honor system. Please, use a legitimate user name and keep comments constructive and friendly. This space is for celebrating who you think deserves to be called the best of the village, and obviously opinions will vary.

 

 

About Best Of: We'll be pitting cuisines against each other (do you order your pizza from or ? breakfast from or ?). In addition to restaurants, we want to know where you have your car tuned up, get your hair cut, take your dry cleaning, even picnic.

As always, anyone with questions about the contest or nominations (for future categories, businesses, or service providers) can contact Editor Karlie Baker at karlie@patch.com.

Prairie Yoga. It is awesome.

Wow. Three comments! I recently joined a small health club in the lower level of the 550 Warrenville RD building in Lisle . The great part of it is that it doubles as the National Personal Trainer Institute. So I work with a great group of PTs for a very reasonable amount of money! the NPTI number is (800) 960-6294.

I tried Planet Fitness last year but I started getting really bored after a couple months. I recently joined XSport, which is working out so far. I don't use the personal training or salon features. Most of the time I don't have to wait around for a particular machine, and I take advantage of the pool more than I thought. Does anyone recommend a yoga class?

I go to the Lisle Park District Fitness Center for cardio workouts and Heaven and Hell Bootcamp for strength training. Love both of them!!

Surprised you excluded Walker Athletics, probably the largest fitness facility in Lisle.
Karlie Baker (Editor) February 29, 2012 at 10:40 PM
We didn't put them in the handy list because most people associate Walker and Bulls-Sox Academy with team training and tournament play, but they aren't "excluded." If somebody wants to recommend them, they just have to comment.

I vote for Prairie Yoga studio!

Prairie Yoga! Yoga is my first choice for staying fit. Edwards Health & Fitness for cardio workouts, though they are not as satisfying to me as yoga. I chose Edwards for its convenience to my home. If it's too far away, I won't go at all.

Three comments on Prairie Yoga seems like a recommendation. Try it!

Crossfit Amplify is terrific. Basic strength training. The trainers are excellent and focus on proper form. Everyone is supportive and encouraging. It's place where everyone knows your name.
