Benefits of Personal Training
Serious athletes have long used personal trainers to enhance their performance in competition. Movie stars are known to hire personal trainers to keep them fitting into their Oscar gowns. But the people who benefit most from personal training are ordinary men and women seeking to be stronger and function more effectively in their everyday lives. Working with a trainer, anyone can achieve their fitness goals—goals as modest as touching your toes again or as ambitious as preparing to run a marathon. Whether you want to lose weight, regain flexibility, develop speed or simply feel good again, personal training is an activity that you will continue to reap benefits in years to come. Our personal trainers’ main objectives are to assist, guide, and educate those who wish to experience a greater ease and physical ability in their lives.

The Art of Bookmaking
At 6 feet 7 inches tall, Dennis is truly the “Sears Tower of Magic.” He’s not just some guy doing a few magic tricks--he does some of the funniest stuff you’ve ever seen! This show blends his lightning-quick wit, improvisational experience (with the famed Second City) and years of performing for a wide range of audiences. Witness the excitement of a child floating in the air during this unparalleled family magic show.
Sky Squad, led by Andres Baines (aka Sky Guy) has thrilled millions of fans with their aerial artistry. Dazzling acrobatic flips and twists off mini trampolines mixed with comedy antics, mid-air passes and dynamic slam dunking delivers non-stop pure energy excitement to audiences of all ages. Sky Squad is the official dunk team for the WNBA Chicago Sky. This special presentation will be located in the gymnasium.
Free Simply Music Workshop!
December 4 and 11 Simply Music is a remarkable, Australian-developed piano method that guarantees to have you playing great-sounding music from your very first lessons! Traditional piano lessons require students to learn how to read music as the means of learning how to play. This “read first, play later” approach is slow and frustrating, and far too many students never acquire the ability to play. In contrast, Simply Music uses a revolutionary approach, focusing on the sheer joy of playing and producing immediate results. We then introduce reading after students have developed a natural connection to the piano and can play a huge repertoire. Gone are the relentless hours of drills, scales and boring practice sessions. Even if you have no musical experience, this remarkable method guarantees extraordinary results and will immediately have you playing contemporary, classical, blues, gospel and accompaniment pieces. Join us for a free introductory lesson on December 4 and December 11 from 6:00–7:00 p.m. with Lynn Sanders.

All classes are built on activities based on core science principles that are framed as questions that your kids ask you everyday. We start every class with a question that kids ask and then use science activities with the guidance of outstanding teachers to explore the answers. Our instructors are certified teachers and scientists. Examples of our science fundamentals series include: how Spider-man walks on walls (pressure and suction), how tape works (adhesives), and why bowling pins fall down (momentum), and even projectile motion in a class called Flying Chickens.

About Our Karate Program
Traditional Karate is a martial art which emphasizes the principles and applications of weaponless self-defense. Our Karate Program follows a systemized belt ranking for all participants. There are 11 belt levels (kyu) before first-degree black belt (shodan). A new student is assigned the white belt rank (eleventh kyu). One must fulfill certain requirements under normal practice conditions and in a test environment to secure progressive promotions up to and including the black belt (dan) levels. When one has acquired a strong foundation in the fundamentals of Karate, he or she can be promoted to the rank of first degree black belt. Uniforms, belt tests and tournaments are optional and will incur additional costs.
Pee Wee Karate
Students learn how to control their energy levels and concentration through study of fundamental Karate principles. Participants will learn how to follow instructions and exercise self control in a fun and exciting environment.
Students may join with the permission of the instructor.
Curriculum enables the beginner through advanced student to develop an effective form of self-defense. Keen perception skills and a mind that is increasingly alert and sensitive are acquired. Students learn how to relax in stressful conditions and keep an emotional balance.

Puppy Class is designed to provide a positive environment for socialization of puppies to a wide variety of people as well as to each other. Early socialization has been shown to greatly reduce the incidence of both human-directed aggression and dog-dog aggression, as well as anxiety and fear based behavior problems. Additional topics will be discussed such as addressing the common puppy issues of house training, mouthing, leadership and preventing behavior problems. Puppies will also learn sit and begin recall training (coming when called). This class is appropriate for puppies ages 2–4 months old. Dogs must have received at least two rounds of vaccinations prior to attending. If your dog has not yet received the second round, please plan to attend class without your puppy until the second round of vaccination has been administered.

Winnetka Community House is committed to conducting its recreation programs and activities in the safest manner possible, and holds the safety of the participants in the highest possible regard. Participants and parents registering their child in recreation programs must recognize, however, that there is an inherent risk of injury when choosing to participate in recreation activities. Winnetka Community House continually strives to reduce such risks, and insists that all participants follow safety rules and instructions which have been designed to protect the participants’ safety. Please recognize that Winnetka Community House does not carry medical accident insurance for injuries sustained in its programs. The cost of such would make program fees prohibitive. Therefore, each person registering himself\herself or a family member for a recreation program/activity should review his/her own health insurance policy for coverage. It must be noted that the absence of health insurance coverage does not make Winnetka Community House automatically responsible for payment of medical expenses. Due to the difficulty and high cost of obtaining liability insurance, the agency providing liability coverage for Winnetka Community House requires the execution of the following Waiver and Release. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Please read this form carefully, and be aware in participating in the program(s) listed on this page, you will be waiving and releasing all claims for injuries you might sustain arising out of the activities of this program.

I agree to waive and relinquish all claims I may have as a result of participating in the program against Winnetka Community House and its officers, agents, servants and employees. I do hereby fully release and discharge Winnetka Community House and its officers, agents, servants and employees from any and all claims from injuries, including death, damages or loss which I may have or which may accrue to me on account of my participation. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless and defend Winnetka Community House and its officers, agents, servants and employees from any and all claims from injuries, including death, damages or losses sustained by me or arising out of, connected with, or in any way associated with the activities of the program. In the event of emergency, I authorize Winnetka Community House officials to secure from any licensed hospital, physician, and/or medical personnel any treatment deemed necessary for my immediate care, and agree that I will be responsible for payment of any and all medical services required. All participants agree that any photography taken while participating in a class, special event or use of a facility may be used for promotional purposes Winnetka Community House. Participants agree to receive emails from Winnetka Community House.
