“We’re excited to welcome Billy Blanks back to Glenview and to give the community a one-of-a-kind opportunity to take classes and meet Billy,” said Kathleen McInnis, Park Center Heath and Fitness Manager. “Billy’s holistic approach to wellness is a great fit with the Park District’s mission, and his energy is contagious!”

The residency will offer an array of high-energy group fitness classes for teens and adults. Billy’s legendary Tae Bo workout is not all about physical training; his classes are designed to increase self-esteem and encourage positive mental health as well. Tae Bo is definitely a workout for the mind, body and spirit. Participants will enjoy a unique, challenging fitness experience that combines elements of dance, martial arts aerobics and boxing.

“Having a fitness residency is a dream come true for me,” said Blanks. “Come join us at Park Center for a workout weekend with me, and I will teach you to exercise your WILL as well as your body. A strong WILL can overcome and achieve anything!”

A number of VIP packages are available for purchase which include all three classes, a meet and greet with Billy Blanks and cool swag. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will kick off the Midwest fitness residency at Park Center on Saturday, May 6, at 10 a.m.
