On Your Mark Coaching and Training is dedicated to helping clients perform at their best.


Our goal is to provide the best training experience in Chicago.


With our STRENGTH, ENDURANCE, PERFORMANCE, and HIIT pillars, On Your Mark offers multiple training options that are both motivating and challenging. Our color-coded class schedule allows clients to effectively build their day, week, and month with a balanced mix of work and recovery. This variety promotes training in a safe, structured environment; with an emphasis on total body conditioning.


OYM trainers and instructors are held to the highest standard of professionalism, and we encourage and develop our team to be industry leaders. We make programming adjustments to accommodate all levels of clientele, with each selected exercise paired with a progression or a regression. Whether the client wants to begin their fitness journey, lose 20 pounds, add lean muscle, or run the Chicago Marathon, we have the expertise to help make it happen.


As a facility, On Your Mark houses top-line equipment from industry-leading brands. Inside our walls house Nike SPARQ, Rogue Fitness, TRX, GTS, Assault Fitness Air Runner Treadmills, WaterRowers, Cascade Cycle Bikes, HyperIce Foam Rollers, and Recovery Pump Recovery Boots. All our toys are ready for play.

Emily Hutchins | Owner

Emily’s philosophy is quite simple, train hard, but train smart. Your body is built on a foundation of 4 principals; function, endurance, strength and recovery. With these 4 principals, you are building a lifetime of increased performance whether you are striving to lose those last couple pounds or completing your 100th Ironman. To her, that doesn’t matter, but what does matter is that you are most efficient with what you have, which in turn is a long life of great health.

Emily’s background in Exercise Science has equipped her with the knowledge of how to develop and build a place where people of all walks of life and abilities are able to become better, stronger, and/or faster, whatever their goal is.

As a Nike Master Trainer and Nike+ Run Coach, Emily serves as a spokesperson for the brand, develops athletic content, leads Chicago area Nike classes and runs, makes personal appearances on behalf of the brand and helps lead Nike brand experiences worldwide (Moscow, Toronto Vancouver, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago).

Emily’s vision of OYM is a place where people can become better versions of themselves; to walk out better, stronger, and faster than when they walked through the doors.
