CHICAGO (WLS) — Get ready for the most unique workout class in the Chicago area.
The C.R.A.Z.Y. PSCYCLE CLASS is a one-of-a-kind spin class, where participants dress up in costumes to match the theme of that day’s work out. Themes include 70’s Disco, Michael Jackson, Back to the 80’s, Lady Gaga as well as the holidays.
This unique exercise experience is the brainchild of fitness instructor Craig J. Harris. He teaches these high-energy sessions at LA Fitness in Tinley Park and FFC Oak Park.
“I was inspired to create the class as a departure from the typical cycle class,” Harris said. “I wanted to combine the challenge of a cycling class workout with a fun, entertaining experience. It distracts the riders from the tedium of the workout and focuses on the fun.”
Beyond its fun and great exercise, the classes are also a resource to raise thousands of dollars for many charities and worthy causes throughout Chicago. Participants are encouraged to donate directly to the causes featured during the class session, and those donations are matched.
So far, the classes have raised thousands of dollars for many charitable organizations including Greater Chicago Food Depository, PAWS Chicago, Girl Scouts, Black Girls Code, Make a Wish Foundation, American Red Cross, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Lurie Children’s Hospital, National Network to End Domestic Violence, NAACP, City of Hope and dozens more.
