‘Hot boxing’ catching fire on the North Shore

Fitness trainer Chad Surdich, who started offering the hot boxing classes last year, has opened a second fitness studio in Highland Park.

“My rooms get up to 95 degrees, and besides the heat being really good for your joints, you can burn over 1,000 calories in 45 minutes,” said Surdich, 43, who opened North Shore Fit Pit’s first location three years ago.

Surdich tells the Glencoe News that he came up with idea for hot boxing classes when he began doing hot yoga a few years ago at an Evanston yoga studio.

“I loved the concept of extreme heat, and after the class I’d be sweating and I’d feel great, but then I’d say, ‘Now I want to work out,’” he said. “So I’d start jump roping and shadowboxing right in the studio.”
