In 2008, Travis ventured into the world of CrossFit and discovered the new meaning of fitness. He quickly became consumed with the philosophy and opened H.O.T.Side CrossFit in his garage, where with the help and enthusiasm of friends, it began to grow.
In September of 2010, the gym was moved to a racquetball court inside of Silver Lake Country Club. Dan then joined the HOTside family as part-owner, and the team energetically promoted the CrossFit brand of fitness throughout the Southwest Suburbs of Chicago.
In March of 2012 the gym relocated again to its current warehouse location in Orland Park.
We currently have over 3,500 square feet of workout space and a mobility loft, plus plenty of open outdoor area when the weather cooperates. We encourage you to stop by and check out the gym, as we are constantly tweaking and adding new toys!
