This week's cover story | Chicago's hottest trainers
Here's a sneak peek at what's coming up in this week's Time Out Chicago, on newsstands tomorrow:
- Personal trainers are supposed to inspire you to look your best, so their own bods had better be damn fine. We found six trainers that fit the bill—they look like they stepped out of Totally Shredded! magazine (that publication doesn't exist, but it should). Check them out, then vote for your favorite. But hurry: Voting ends January 8! The winner will be crowned in the January 14 issue.
- Chances are some of your Facebook friends or Twitter tweeps are constantly posting about their "amaaaaaaazing workout that just kicked my ass!!!!" Chances are also good they're going on about one of the five fitness regimens that have achieved cult status in the past few months or years. What's the fuss? We had a newbie try each of the five workouts—Flywheel, CrossFit, RowFit, Shred415 and CorePower Yoga—and report whether they became addicted.
- Speaking of addiction, Jonathan Eig has something to confess: He was a compulsive adherent to his Nike+ FuelBand, until he found the courage to rid himself of it.
