Christie's Group Exercise Classes
Christie’s “Integrative Fitness” classes are unlike any other classes you will find on the North Shore! Why? Christie has created a unique and extremely effective blend of a variety of disciplines and woven them into one class combining cardio (low impact and interval training), strengthening and sculpting (weights, resistance bands, Stott Magic Rings, ballet barre work), as well as “killer abs” (Pilates/weighted ball combo).
Of course there is plenty of stretching and a delicious 10 minute segment of yoga and meditation under comfy
blankets by candlelight at the end of each class! In fact, Christie’s classes are often called “Where East Meets West”.
Christie’s classes are enjoyed by women of all ages and levels of fitness. Whether you consider yourself an elite athlete or couch potato, Christie can and will coach you effectively and safely.
Finally, the class is particularly popular among Baby Boomers, who refuse to slow down, but need to be mindful of injury prevention. Christie’s Integrative Fitness Training is the only group exercise class in Chicago that actually includes a variety of exercises rooted in physical therapy to strengthen shoulders, abs, backs, and knees in order to build a healthy base.
"I've been taking Christie's class for over 10 years. Its consistently challenging, and always fun. She is a terrific teacher--introducing new ideas and equipment, but always mindful of making sure her students are using the right form, and not getting hurt. She works on cardio fitness, strength, and toning. I'm really picky about exercise instructors, and Christie is the best." - Nancy G.
"I have been a devotee of Christie Southern's for over 10 years now. In that time her class has evolved from a cardio-based workout to more of a strength/conditioning/cardio combination. The emphasis is on overall good health, not just Michelle Obama arms (although those are a definite bonus). Christie is unfailingly positive and encouraging, and her classes are the highlights of my week!" - Peggy H.
"Christie strengthens our bodies and our spirits. Her deliberate focus on core strength, flexibility, aerobic health and lifestyle brings immediate results, but she also protects us for the future. I leave her studio with a burst of endorphins, a song in my head and a smile on my face. Fun and effective!" - Ann S.
