Your knee's still out of whack from running season, and your shoulder is 
killing you from too many hours at your desk. Normally you'd head to a 
calorie-crushing CrossFit class after work, but right now, your aching bod 
is begging you to go easy. React Physical Therapy http://bereact.com/ in 
the West Loop helps Bulls and Bears players recover from injuries, and 
owner David Reavy has used his expertise about getting them back in the 
game to create RMx, his new therapy-based fitness class for non-pros like 
us. RMx sessions are limited to six participants and are led by certified 
physical therapists who know how to spot and address individual weaknesses. 
Most of the work you'll do is focused on correcting strength 
imbalances--that's the culprit that most often sidelines sports stars and 
is the reason your lower back spazzes out after a kettlebell class your 
core wasn't strong enough to handle. You'll begin by loosening your muscles 
with foam rollers and lacrosse balls, then you'll gradually work up to a 
cardio portion, which can involve anything from resistance bands to 
medicine balls. It's definitely a workout. You'll sweat and you'll be 
sore--but it will feel like you and your body are finally on the same page. 
Classes are $175 a week for two 60-minute sessions or $250 for three 
sessions; React Physical Therapy, 225 S. Sangamon St.; 312-243-9350 or
