Body Tech Total Fitness, an established health club in the South Suburbs for over 36 years that offers CrossFit training and facilities over and above its more conventional fitness and health programs.
Steve, the health club’s president, as well as the staff, noticed that more and more of the members members were doing CrossFit-style workouts. Interpreting this as a training void, they decided to start a first-rate CrossFit program and facility. In that sense, the members dictated the club’s direction towards CrossFit programming.
Body Tech History
The history behind Body Tech Total Fitness is intimately entwined in the family history of Steve Tomczak, who has served as the president for the past 10 years running. We feel that the best way to learn a bit about the company and its corporate mindset is to listen to Steve describe a bit of it. Here’s what Steve has to say:
|Appreciating the importance of fitness combined with the need for a fitness facility in the south suburbs, my parents opened up Nautilus of Orland Park in 1976. In 1994, my father and I opened Sports Club Fitness Center in Frankfort. In 2002, we moved to Mokena (One Mokena Plaza, LaGrange Rd.), and Body Tech Total Fitness was established. Within these past 10 years, we have had 4 expansions within this facility to the size of approx. 25,000 sq. ft.It has taken a lot of hard work and dedication to get to where we are today.I am extremely grateful to my parents for getting started in the fitness industry and showing me the importance of health and fitness at an early age. Myself along with my 5 other brothers and sisters grew up around it and my parents’ first health club became our second home. I am most proud of the fact that I continued what my parents had begun 36 years ago, and continued it the right way, which is taking pride in helping each member reach their fitness goals and giving them a clean, comfortable atmosphere in which to do this. I also take pride in being accessible to all members at any time. The fitness industry has changed a lot over this 36 year span and it is very important to change with the times as well.|
With that sense of personal history ingrained in the company and the dedication of the man at its helm, members rest assured that the like-minded staff at each of the Body Tech facilities are responsive to, and take a personal interest in whatever health and fitness training program(s) each member embarks on.
