Gyms and Health Clubs
Chicago is a health conscious city. Before work, after work, on weekends and holidays, a good portion of the Windy City's residents gear up for a workout at their local gym. Armed with water bottle and iPod, Chicagoans descend upon the myriad of exercise clubs found in almost every neighborhood and suburb. While some gyms are as basic as they come-a few free weights and a treadmill-others offer state-of-the-art equipment, onsite massage therapists, yoga studios, personal trainers, and luxury locker rooms. Unfortunately, those little "extras" don't come cheap, which means the range in membership fees runs the gamut in Chicago. So it pays to shop around before settling on a gym to join. But as long as you have space to do your regular routine and a way to burn off those calories, don't sweat it!

Whether you choose a posh downtown health spa or the local YMCA, you'll nevertheless encounter the same penchant for a good work out. Gyms across the city fill up with active individuals, dedicated athletes and on-again, off-again exercisers. The whir of elliptical machines, clink of weights, and slap of running shoes against the treadmill conveyor belts are familiar sounds here. Teeming with people of all ages, skill levels, strength and endurance, Chicago health clubs are a powerhouse of energy and endorphins that encourage an active lifestyle for everyone.
In the summertime, Chicago gyms clear out somewhat as folks head outdoors for their daily regimen of physical activity. Drawn to the scenic lakefront locale, endless pedestrian trails and bike paths, legion of public athletic fields, citywide recreation teams, and considerable outdoor park space, many prefer to get a little fresh air and sunshine while getting in a work out. Some gyms even set up temporary outside exercise stations at the beach for the season. The ultimate way to get in shape and get a tan!
