Supposedly the apartment I'll be living in has a weight bench so I should be able to keep lifting. Where do you lift in Wilmette? I usually go to Patten gym on campus.

boxing is very simple. a few basic punches, but proper technique is required. and footwork, ie twist the body and lead foot while punching.

Glenview is where ABT is right?

Hello everyone. I live and lift in Tinley Park. I am a member of Lifetime so I can go to any of their locations. I also sometimes go to Quad's in Cal City on the weekends to lift with the big boys. If anyone in the Chicago/ NW Indiana area ever wants somebody to lift with give me a shout. I can buy a one day pass, and maybe swap some tips/techniques with you. Also hello BethM242003. I used to get out to Wheaton as I was once dating a girl who lived there.

Hey guys,

I am in Champaign/Urbana finishing up my last year (hopefully) and I really need a workout partner for motivation. I used to be a regular last year, but this year I found myself drinking/partying/wasting time way too much. I go to cardinal and its really cheap and almost never even 25% full. So if you live in Champaign/Urbana and already workout or want to start working out consistently, let me know. All the guys in my frat that used to workout with me graduated and now I find myself gaining more fat than muscle and I need some descipline in my life before things start to take a turn for the worse. Let me know if you are interested, and we can work out some kind of schedule. M or F, Near champaign/urbana, determined to work out regularly.

any decent gyms in the loop area, probably moving there soon, the one in the apartments we are probably moving into is ****, light freeweights, no squat rack >:I >:I, and one i'm at now is about 1.5 miles away >:I

all I care about is free weights and a couple treadmills (winter only). no yoga raquetball manicure sauna pilates bull****. and price. how much is LAC it looks expensive. all i see is metraplex, ballys and lac and they all look trendy and expensive, why can't their be some kian basement damn gym with a bench squat rack and some heavy free weights and screw all the personal trainers and pilates samba steppin classes.

might have to just suck it up and pay or go down to cardinal off madison (which also kina sucks as they have 2 benches, 1 freeweight rack, and weights only go up to 110, no t-bar) but woopty doo have like 40 cardio machines. i guess thats the market though and distracts from "intimidating" people going there... (so many of gyms say)

there is also union park fitness center, 35 bucks for 2 months no contracts, have good free weights, might switch there... still a hike...1501 w randolph

i think its pretty good for the 50 bucks i pay per month. theres an indoor and outdoor pool(not doing any good during the winter obviously), theres a wet and dry sauna i believe, theres 2 huge indoor basketball courts, a racquet ball court, 2 hot tubs that seat like 10 people each, theres a big room in the gym downstairs with the courts and stuff thats just for cardio, and upstairs they have the weight room and i guarantee youve never seen one so big, theres about 5x more cardio equipment up there than the room downstairs, theres a fitness room where they have like aerobic fitness sessions up there, and the equipment and free weights span the whole floor upstairs. the bathrooms are so nice theyre cleaned once every hour and the people there are really nice. only problem ive encountered so far is it gets REALLY busy during certain hours but since the place is gigantic you pretty much never have to wait to use something. also theres like massage rooms and stuff and it also encorporates a sports therapy place too. not sure as far as tanning goes i forgot if theres a tanning area or not, ill have to look into it. theres also a rock climbing wall if youre into that. WELL worth the 50 dollars in my opinion, the one time initiation fee was a bit expensive though at close to 190. I really enjoy the place though, hope that helped.

Hello, I am in Aurora both my hubby and I work out here at the VAC. I used to live up north in Wildwood ( By Gurnee) and still go up there occasionally. We looked at LTF but, fo a family of 5 it was too expensive and not really that close to home, though my hubby works in Lombard he could have stopped there on his way home but for me, it just didn't look like a smart decision.

For the person looking for a gm in DeKalb, check out Wrights Gym. It's nothing fancy but it's a place where you can get done what you need to get done and the owner is real nice too. You can talk to Ray Binkowski down there, he promotes the OCB Midwest States comspetition in November and is freindly and helpful.

For you guys that are in the Wheaton, Bolingbrook, Naperville areas, maybe when it warms up we could get together for some bleacher runs or hill bounding or something. Some great outdoor cardio! PM me if you are interested. Oh..and Hi Layne!!

there is a fitness 19 that is cheap as heck. an ok free weights section. all you need really, and looks to lack alot of male members so less fights for the weights. There is a ballys as well on waukegan rd, as well as another gym in the back of that shopping center hidden. There is a lifetime fitness in skokie if you are willing to take the 15 minute drive. It is a good one though, with alot of jacked people for motivation when lifting. besides that, all I can think of are the park districts. Oh, and bannockburn club on waukegan rd as well has a gym but not sure how good.

But I have a bud at Lemont, which is why I joined there. Been thinking of not renewing and switching to one of the closer Xsports.

How do you or anyone else like the Xsport in Darien and Downers Grove?
In recent weeks, I've read of several car burglaries at Finley and even a couple of thefts inside the facility.

I workout at the Bally's in Deerfield and it really is the best gym around for the price. I have worked out at the Waukegan Powerhouse, Vernon Hills Bally's and Gurnee's Centre Club.
But, anyone know how the X-Sports are near Palatine? Is the one in Arlington Heights good?

arlington heights x sport is very good. That waukegan powerhouse, where in waukegan is it? Every part of Waukegan i have driven through looked like a craphole with little to no big businesses besides a walmart and some fried chicken shacks

LOL,...I live in DG and workout at Powerhouse in Lemont. Funny, because the Xsport in Darien is on the way to Lemont and would save me miles. The one on Finley is in DG and even closer.
But I have a bud at Lemont, which is why I joined there. Been thinking of not renewing and switching to one of the closer Xsports.

How do you or anyone else like the Xsport in Darien and Downers Grove?
In recent weeks, I've read of several car burglaries at Finley and even a couple of thefts inside the facility.

Well the DG one is much nicer, worth the extra ride. Haven't heard of the burglaries but I'm not too worried about that.

Northwest Chicago over here.

I'm gonna be heading to college next year (don't know where yet), but I was wondering if anyone knows of any good gyms around the Skokie/Niles area? Perhaps even someplace in the northside of the city. I need to join some gym for the summer because my high school won't open it's gym in the summer... My friend goes to the Niles Fitness Center, and I know there's an XSport in Niles.

Hit me up with a PM.

I live in Algonquin when school is not in session. Worked out at Lifetime Fitness till my membership was over (too pricey) and got a winter pass at Cardinal Fitness.

I go to school at the University of Illinois and work out at our free rec center which has everything a BB'er would need. Gets packed during the late afternoons so I try to work out during non-peak hours.

Anyone else work out at IMPE?

Yep

While I'm at college most of the year I am in Carbondale (southern tip of IL), and while at home I am in Crystal Lake (NW of Chicago).

Carbondale here too, but I'm an old guy that works out at Gold's. I have a good friend in Crystal Lake too.

I was in Champaign for 4 years. Worked out at IMPE and CRCE(too cramped)

Now I am back in Wilmette. I workout at home in my Garage but I have a membership to the Mcgaw YMCA in Evanston.

Its very cheap, good atmosphere and some heavy lifters. I recommend it highly
