About Full Circle Fitness & Social Club
Welcome! We Created This Place For You.
It's true. YOU are the person we had in mind when we created Full Circle Fitness & Social Club in Oak Park - and we couldn't be more excited to welcome you into the family!
We wanted to build a place that was not only known for amazing classes, excellent teachers and friendly staff - but also as a place that fosters growth and love for all those who pass thru our doors.
We believe we are ALL difference makers in our personal, work, and social lives - and we offer an opportunity for our community to dive deeper into the dimensions of wellness: mind, body and spirit.
What is the "Social Club"?
The 'Social Club' is a platform to develop new skills and hobbies, be active in our community outreach, and be a place of inclusion and acceptance through all of life's challenges. We offer an ongoing calendar of events, covering a wide variety of topics. Check our Events page often!
The Full Circle Story
Hello! I'm Holly and I am the Founder of Full Circle Fitness and Social Club established in March 2019. After years of being a studio owner for a national franchise, I, along with the support of an amazing Team, decided to go independent and create a studio and social club that not only focuses on fitness but other areas of health and wellness. By adding elements to the studio platform, we support the growth and continuous learning that ultimately adds to personal satisfaction within.
I have been teaching barre and cycle classes for over 6 years but my love for exercise was a roller coaster of love and hate. Prior to opening a boutique fitness studio in 2013, I worked in the insurance industry in Chicago. After a long day of work, I would (begrudgingly) go to the local gym, find it awkward and intimidating and did not feel any different. I actually hated the experience. As many others do, the cycle of going to the gym and quitting went on for years. When I found barre classes, my life changed. Barre classes, although difficult, were doable. I had one hour of constant direction that I could follow, concentrate on exactly what was being said, not think about deadlines, sales goals, where I thought I should be in life, it was just me, listening to those clear directions from the Instructor.
I found my style, pace, and felt amazing. The results were seen but most important was the confidence I felt.
That is what brought ME to the place I am today, my singular goal is to give the opportunity for EVERYONE, all sizes, ages, and fitness levels, a place that is inclusive to all and where you, as an individual, are seen or heard and appreciated. Difference Makers that spread your happiness to all because you feel powerful within Yourself.
