    Saturday Zumba and hip hop with Carlos is the way to go. Actually, ANY CLASS with Carlos will give you a great workout and new dance moves for the club later that night. Check him out!!

    The management, professionalism, and attention to detail make this club top notch. I emailed the manager about an issue and he CALLED me to let me know he appreciated my feedback. First class.

    A much less distracting atmosphere than at FFC Halsted! Great gym and good mix of people. But what's up with the ventilation in the 2nd floor workout area feeling as hot as a sauna all the time?

    The lunchtime classes are awesome and for those of you who work from home, it's a great reason to get out in the middle of the day :-)

    AWESOME GYM, towel service and all. Make sure to ask for Martin Kimpston as your personal trainer. He doesn't push you, he guides you to your goal.

    Pool is short (50 foot) a bit on the warm side but 24 hour access is handy. 53 laps per mile. Don't lose count!

    Te new layout is horrible. They took an already crowded free weight area and made it smaller in addition to crowding in more equipment.

    As with most gyms Monday is national bench press day so plan on waiting for a bench as well as most of the other equipment.
