Titan Gym

A center for Krav Maga, Martial Arts,
Fitness, Boxing, and Yoga.

Our Schedule

Valentines Day is a great holiday to celebrate your appreciation and affection for the people you love in your life. For some of us hard core fitness enthusiasts, it might just be another day in America where we can pig out on chocolate and wine. For others, it might be a lonely night at the gym.

Whatever the case may be, the successes you create in your personal relationships with those you love in your life can be strengthened if you begin to parallel it with the love you maintain for fitness - a successful relationship requires discipline and focus.

To maintain a strong relationship, one needs to avoid the plateau by constantly introducing new challenges. In your workouts as well, it is important to constantly introduce new exercises, new programs, or new environments in your training ground.

Welcome instability; don't avoid challenges like most people do: understand that in order to grow, you can't be a winner if you are complacent. Take a look at what Titan Gym has to offer you - join a class that is outside of your comfort zone and add another dimension to your daily routine.

Student Spotlight: Jessie G.

Hi! I’m Jessie! I’m originally from the northwest suburbs of Chicago and moved to the city at 17 for college. I’m a hairstylist in Roscoe Village and for those of you that work with people constantly, you know how important it is to have an outlet to release your frustrations at times. Krav has been a great stress reliever as well as an amazing workout. I love every minute of it! I’ve played sports for almost my entire life, but have no previous martial arts experience. Krav has been such a great transition for working out, since volleyball doesn’t exactly allow you to punch people. All the instructors at Titan are so supportive and knowledgeable, and I learn so much with every class I take! Thanks to everyone at Titan for making class the highlight of my day!

Instructor Spotlight: A. Bailey

I started attending Titan in February 2016 after attending one of our free Women’s Self-Defense Seminars. I loved that the gym had so many strong, capable women and a bunch of dudes we kept around to maim. While spending the previous 2 years teaching English in South Korea, I’d started attending a boxing gym and enjoyed a small, vibrant community who like to sweat and punch things, and I was looking to continue that after moving to Chicago.

Being at Titan became much more than a workout and because a community—we camp together, eat together, support each other’s careers and hobbies—and I’m so thankful to be a part of that family, especially since mine lives on the West Coast.

I currently work as a Sales Lead in the retail arm of a large technology company and can be found playing adult make believe (also known as Improv comedy) at a couple of theaters on the north side. Trust me when I say if you need a weird context for a Krav move, I will find it for you and I will make a groan-worthy dad joke out of it.
