Hardpressed is more than a workout — it’s a community. Let’s get you ready for your first session!


WHERE TO GO: Hardpressed Strength is located at 219 West Chicago Avenue, Suite 600.

WHAT TO WEAR: Come comfortable in your favorite workout clothes: shorts or leggings with a tank or t-shirt and comfortable gym shoes.

WHAT TO BRING: We work up a serious sweat in 30 little minutes, so it’s important to hydrate. Bring a bottle to fill up or grab one for purchase at the front desk. If you bring your workout clothes, sneakers and willingness to work hard: we’ll cover the rest.

WHEN TO ARRIVE: Please arrive at the proper studio fifteen (15) minutes before your session and let the front desk know it’s your first time. They'll give you a tour of the facility, show you to the locker rooms and answer any questions you have. 

WHAT'S NEXT: Hardpressed Strength can get addictive, just ask our clients! Book sessions ahead of time using our schedule page or the Hardpressed app to stay aligned with your fitness goals. This helps guarantee your favorite trainer and/or session time is available. We offer a variety of packages to meet every budget, which you’ll find on our pricing page
