More than 100 people worked out Aug. 21 at the Libertyville Sports Complex Fitness Center, but this workout was different from most -- it was led by international Tae Bo Fitness guru Billy Blanks.
Blanks was in Libertyville at the Sports Complex Fitness Center promoting his 11th Annual Tae Bo Fitness Challenge. The two sessions he conducted found devoted fans of his fitness workouts, as well as newcomers who wanted to learn firsthand the Billy Blanks fitness experience.
"This was so special getting to work out with Billy Blanks, having him lead the session," said Libertyville resident Kendra Fischl, who recently joined the Sports Complex Fitness Center.
"Everyone in the class was really in to it. Billy was awesome and really motivated everyone with his fitness expertise."
This special "Fitness Weekend" promotion at the Sports Complex also included a WHY 2K Obstacle Course and Fun Run on Saturday.
In its ninth year of operation, the Libertyville Sports Complex includes a fitness center, indoor events center, driving range and softball field and is at Peterson Road and Route 45.
