Transform your lifestyle at J.Gil Fitness' private fitness studio - 503 S. Country Fair Drive #2E in Champaign, IL.
J.Gil Fitness was established March 2018 to provide the community with a slightly unconventional yet effective way of training while enjoying the benefits of being outdoors - the OG outdoor bootcamps. Online training was added in late 2018 to continue working with clients while the Midwest weather wasn't ideal for outdoor activities. It has since provided a way to reach those that do not live locally or cannot attend specific training times.
In early 2019, J.Gil Fitness expanded by partnering with a local training facility to add indoor training to the schedule - Group PT. And in Summer 2019, collaborations began with local businesses and organizations to offer Pop Up events to celebrate the community and raise awareness.
In 2020, J.Gil Fitness opened it's own private fitness studio in Champaign, IL. With this move came an expansion of services offered including the addition of several group fitness classes - outdoor, indoor, virtual, and a new trainer was added to the Team to provide additional class formats/styles. We have options for everyBODY!
Thank you for voting J.Gil Fitness a finalist in the News-Gazette People's Choice Awards - 2019 and 2020 Group Fitness, and 2020 Gym.
