If one of your new year’s resolutions includes getting in shape, the H-F Racquet & Fitness Club, 2920 W. 183rd St. in Homewood, is offering non-members a chance to work with a personal trainer.
The Homewood-Flossmoor Park District board of commissioners approved a proposal Dec. 21 for 55-minute personal training sessions for non-members. One session is $54 and two sessions are $90.
Mike Loszach, the club’s assistant manager, told the board his intention is to help motivate people to come into the club. Some of those interacting with a personal trainer will be good with one or two lessons, but others may choose to continue with a personal trainer for the motivational help.
The club has eight personal trainers on its roster, Loszach said.
Since March 2020 with the start of the pandemic, club numbers have dropped off. The club has followed all health rules and requires masks. Loszach said the personal trainer sessions could encourage participants to continue at the club.
He said those buying a membership package will see the personal trainer rates drop from the introductory rate. A 10-session program for resident members is $420 for 55-minute sessions and $270 for 30-minutes.
Loszach said his philosophy of opening the personal training program to non-members falls in line with the commissioners’ efforts to make the club more inclusive.
