Sweat on State might be the new kid in town, but it’s already making a name for itself in the Chicago’s fitness scene. This boutique fitness studio puts participants through vigorous interval training in order to achieve maximum results.

“You exhaust your body throughout a short amount of time and then you take a rest period to recovery so you can push that hard again,” Rahn says.

This maximizes strength-building benefits which according to the National Institute of Health, can help build stronger bones and prevent injury and osteoporosis down the road. Check out these strengthening moves and give them a try!
