Roosevelt Collection is proud to welcome the 6th outpost of the ever-popular Shred415. Acclaimed as one of the best workouts by Chicago Magazine and a must try for “cult fitness” by Vogue, the Shred415 doors were opened by fitness experts Bonnie Micheli and Tracy Roemer in April 2011 in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, IL. Since 2011, Shred415 has opened five additional studios, including one in Old Town, Wicker Park, Chicago’s North Shore and St. Louis, MO. The new studio in Chicago’s South Loop will offer Shred415’s one-of-a-kind high intensity interval training workout in heart-pounding, sweat-infused, 60-minute group fitness class.
