Athletes Village

athletes-village-best-chicago-gymFFC South Loop will act as complimentary gear check for members and non-members for select race events through the fall. Racers with a bib will have access to the club all day, and we will open earlier on those days to accommodate. After the race, we will have massage therapists and trainers on hand for stretching and to soothe your tired muscles.
