Strengthen The Future With Hot Ground Gym In Northbrook

Hot Ground Gym is the ultimate experience for kids no matter what age they may be. We help to create an atmosphere that’s thrilling, fun, and all about movement. We’re not just a gym, we are a facility that encourages kids to grow strong, learn, and have a good time. Our mission is to challenge your child with enjoyable, guided obstacle courses that will inspire them to push themselves in other areas of their lives as well.

Our instructors are role models that are inspiring and help create team building missions that will increase the creativity, adaptability, cooperation, courage, strength, stamina, and the communication skills in your child. Hot Ground Gym was founded by two military veterans in July of 2013. These veterans served in the U.S. Marine Corps and the Israeli Special Forces, which is why our program is one-of-a-kind. We decided to combine more traditional sports programs with fitness and self-defense to help keep the next generation physically fit while developing character.

We’re proud to offer these fitness training programs because we know that children are the future. By taking one step at a time to help them with physical, mental, and character development, we’re creating a future of adults that will be ready to take on the world.

What Is Junior Boots™

In short, Junior Boots is a fitness training program that has five dimensional concepts. This training platform is innovative, revolutionary, and specific to Hot Ground Gym. The five pillars that we created are essential for the growth of your child’s character. Each of the obstacle courses focuses on these different pillars such as physical activity, critical thinking, teamwork, leadership, and discipline.

We have three different companies that range from kindergarten to eighth grade. The age groups are divided into three companies: alpha, bravo, and charlie. The alpha company is kindergarten and second grade, bravo is third through fifth, and charlie is sixth through eighth grade.


The approach that we take to each of the programs that we build out for the different age groups has three different points. This three-pronged approach consists of building the physical, character, and mental development of each child that comes to us. Each Junior Boots program has a weekly mission every week and that mission is centered around team and scenario building. What’s great about each of the missions that we do each week is how the children have to come up with an action plan to successfully complete the mission. This helps to build teamwork and camaraderie, which can be carried into other walks of life as well. Additionally, it helps with problem solving skills to figure out the best solution to a scenario.

Stay Warm This Winter With Our Camps

Winter in the Chicagoland area can be harsh. Not only is it cold and snowy, but your child is probably trapped inside with nothing to do during the winter holidays. While it might be easier to let them hang out in the house, you could also encourage them to experience some new activities. Even though our winter break is only a few weeks, our winter camp will help your child learn a lot. The goal at our winter camp is to help your child build various skills to take with them for their entire life.

Our instructors will create missions and experiences that will challenge your child to be a better leader and team member. The challenges that we create are not only active, but they will encourage your child to think through a solution to a scenario. Your child will learn about practical skills they can use for their entire life. Additionally, our winter camps are fun, so instead of sitting inside and doing nothing all winter break, your child will learn and be creative. He or she will also spend time with kids their own age and learn how to support their fellow friends and other teammates. While the winter is icy and cold, your child will be working hard both mentally and physically.
