This evening, our fourth annual Racked Awards gala celebration is taking place in NYC, where we'll toast our country's best and brightest retail stars. Going to the gym is one thing, but getting a good workout is another. At Shred415, every class will put your body to work. You'll sweat, gasp for breath, and feel so accomplished at the end of the hour.
Created Chicago fitness experts, Bonnie Micheli and Tracy Roemer, Shred415's system is made of four, fifteen-minute intervals that alternate between cardio on top quality Woodway treadmills and weight training on the floor. The rotations and high energy music make classes go by quickly. It's extremely challenging and feels a bit like boot camp—in a good way.
Above all, Shred415 instructors are incredibly supportive and motivational without being cheesy. No unsolicited life lessons, just the words of encouragement you need to push yourself to shred!
