So many memories of Gates Gym!
The local New Trier Community will pay tribute to Gates Gym all through December.
Our Sunrise Bootcamp has it’s own memories to share! 3-Days a week for years sunrise boot-camp met 3-times a week to get fit and stay fit! Many of the students attended this class for 30 plus years! This class became a great reason to get out of bed to get the workout completed early in the morning.
The dedication of these students was the most I have ever witnessed in my 30 year career. Students attended class faithfully, would attend class during the coldest temps in the dark at 5:30am. Students risking falls on the ice to attend the class that made them fill fit and healthy. Good news, the gym was always a balmy 85 degrees +! Never a cold moment, as we would sweat our way through an hour of power! What a way to start the day!
I will never forget the fun, the sweat, the tears! Also Rogers cooking! During the summer we would meet at Elder Park to enjoy our early morning classes. What a beautiful site each and every day. When Gate Gym was in use, it was off to the kickbox studio, a whole new workout. Take a moment to check out our classes!
Don’t forget all classes are still running in the evenings at both schools!
