These are unprecedented times. We want to thank you for your continued support during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have closely followed the re-opening guidelines of our Governor’s Restore Illinois Plan. We can assure you that our member’s safety is our number one concern. Training Ground Athletic (TGA) is committed to coming back from our mandated closure STRONGER THAN EVER.  The fitness industry has been hit hard during this time but our unique training model allows us to continue to grow and serve our members.  As a private, boutique training studio, we are not only able to continue to provide exceptional coaching and individualized programming, but also individualized space and equipment…..in the safest environment possible. Our small group model and room layout  allows us to adhere to physical distancing guidelines and even stricter sanitation protocols.  This is a major advantage for our valued members that other gyms may not be able to provide. While the future of fitness is very uncertain right now, our mission is still very clear: to help YOU become the strongest and healthiest version of yourself! 
We will get through this TOGETHER.
Yours in good health,
 Coach T signature
