In a world where children too often sit in front of screens all day, physical fitness is of the utmost importance. At Hot Ground Gym® we focus on utilizing fitness for kids to develop their physical and mental strength. Not only that, but our program also focuses on the development of character. We utilize a 5-dimensional concept™ or 5DC™. This training methodology was designed by our founders and is vastly different than most approaches to physical fitness for kids. We utilize the following five fundamental pillars in our program:

  1. Obstacle Course Fitness
  2. Teamwork
  3. Leadership
  4. Critical Thinking
  5. Discipline

When your children visit Hot Ground Gym®, they will be introduced to far more than just a simple fitness routine. Rather, they will be exposed to real-life leaders who demonstrate how they can build confidence as they grow physically and mentally stronger. By implementing the five pillars of our foundational program, we effectively guide children to a stronger place throughout their time with us. Find out more information below about each of the unique programs we offer and feel free to reach out any time to learn more about Hot Ground Gym®. With locations in Vernon Hills, Northbrook, and Arlington Heights, we are here to serve the greater Chicagoland area.

Winter & Summer Camps

Too often kids camps miss the mark in regards to the full development of your child. In many cases, their days are simply filled with random activities, aimed at passing the day. Our summer camps and winter camps are a different breed. We didn’t simply put together a camp program that passes the time, we designed a focused set of challenges that will help strengthen your child physically and mentally. We will work toward building character and leadership skills as your child attends our camp.

We offer winter and summer camps in Vernon Hills, Arlington Heights, and Northbrook. During our camps, your child will be exposed to an array of skills, experiences, scenarios, and challenges. The goal is that, by the end of every single day, your child will head home stronger physically and mentally. Through our guided obstacle courses and teamwork, your child will learn how to think critically, how to depend on teammates, and how to become a more confident person. If you are interested in our winter or summer camps, reach out to learn more about enrollment.

Birthday Party Ideas

Don’t settle for any old birthday party for your kid. If you are looking for birthday party ideas in Vernon Hills, Arlington Heights, or Northbrook, we have the solution for you. Rather than simply baking a cake and hanging streamers, booking a birthday party with Hot Ground Gym® will provide your child with an event that is memorable and meaningful.

When you book a birthday party with us, the event will be 100 percent private. Our entire staff and facility will be dedicated to your child’s special day. The party will begin with 60 minutes of guided activity. This is the portion of the party where your child will participate in obstacle courses and team building activities. Once the mission has been completed, the next 30 minutes are for eating food and cake, if desired. We never charge extra for you to bring your own food and cake to the party. In fact, we will even have your birthday child cut the cake with a military sword!

If you want to book a birthday party that will be unforgettable, contact us to learn more.
