I joined FFC Gold Coast in late November 2016 and wanted to share how happy I am with the decision I made. Your employee, personal trainer Hannah Ferris, is one of the main reasons I am so happy I joined FFC. After being frustrated with the small gym in my building I decided I needed […]

I can’t say enough about Deirdre as a personal trainer. I have been seeing her now for two months and cannot wait for many more months to come. She has become my biggest cheer leader, the person who pushes me to the edge each and every moment and the voice reminding me “I can do […]
I couldn’t really say better things about the overall experience I have had at the gym thus far. I have only been a member for about a month, but I really enjoyed the 4 personal training classes and the other perks they give you when you first join. They truly seem invested in helping you […]
I just wanted to reach out to say that I am absolutely loving my membership at FFC, and that Lea has especially made my time at FFC amazing! When I first joined, Norma, who is absolutely lovely, helped to sign me up. I was mostly joining because I was going through a bad breakup and […]
The staff is amazing especially Jauna the babysitter- she takes the best care of our children. It’s safe. I feel safe and respected in this gym. It’s clean. I see the cleaning ladies working tirelessly to keep the locker room clean. For people who work out every day it’s a real exercise community not just […]
I recently attended some training sessions at FFC Westloop with John Malinak. I had not worked out in the past year and was very low on energy and stamina. He assessed my activity level and built a routine customized for me. I saw results within just 4 sessions. I was lifting 3 times the weight […]
For almost 2 years I’ve been working with trainer Jessica Frank and I’ve DEFINITELY gotten some amazing results that I never dreamed were even possible. My initial weight loss goal was 10 pounds. I knew I needed to lose closer to 20 but I didn’t want to set myself up for failure. Well…after working with […]
I love this gym. It’s clean and has everything I need. Everyone is friendly and the kids club staff are great, especially Yolanda who really goes above and beyond for my daughter. Jasmine and Kahari are great too.
I would recommend highly because I get a lot out of the facility. Variety of equipment, spacious, cleanliness, and professional manner displayed by the staff and trainers.
Because there is a sense of belonging there, the customer service is incredible – it really makes a difference when you are warmly greeted when checking in and when they say goodbye when you leave. The facilities are well cleaned as well.
Great customer service! Nice facilities and fantastic trainers!
It’s the BEST Club I have ever belonged to.
The facilities are clean and well kept. The front desk staff is always warm and welcoming. I’ve had a few private fitness training sessions, which we great. I felt as if I received the proper instructions for reaching my goals. I take advantage of many groups classes. Although my experience with each instructor varies, I […]
The Pilates mat classes and group apparatus are exceptional! Thank you Kristen and Kervin!
monthly cost provides constant classes for athletes included in cost. **Antonio and Steve for total body and chisel…amazing workout Keith spin….great Allen for masters swimming…wealth of knowledge/great coach staff are always polite and professional and set the tone for the club locker rooms are spotless….
FFC South Loop – The staff is great, Miss Juana is invaluable, the club is clean, it’s convenient, so much to recommend.
I really like the atmosphere, fitness instructors, and personnel at the front desk. Also, having locations throughout the city is really ideal for commuting from work or home to a club. Each club I visit is clean and inviting – keep up the great work. My favorite instructors are Ron Mendoza and Amanda Brizic….. please […]
Love FFC. Also want to mention that FFC union station location is the best managed club. Everyone there are very nice, club is always clean, instructors are very good.
there are certain things about the club I really enjoy. First and foremost, I enjoy training with Rich Fray. I have mentioned this before in such surveys. He is great at what he does. My fitness regiment used to consist strictly of distance running. After two knee surgeries, I struggled to find a replacement. Training […]
Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am working with Bobby. He has been terrific! He challenges me every session, but keeps it fun. We have made significant progress and I could not be more pleased. In addition, Bobby is just plain nice to be with.
1. The overall approach is friendly and without judgment; diversity of ability and age are welcome. 2. At the same time there is a challenging atmosphere that leads one to realize how much more one can do–than they think they can. 3. Safety and cleanliness of the surroundings are never an issue. 4. Fees are […]
Friendly place. Everyone from Danny in the locker room to all the trainers. Clean and well kept. Nice equipment.
I love the classes offered! The lockers rooms are high quality with a sauna and jacuzzi and steam room. Plenty of lockers. The facility is large and has many cardio machines and enough room for weight training. Everyone is very nice. The cafe is a great feature too and this is all for an affordable […]
I’ve been a member for about a year and have had a very positive experience so far!
Everyone that I have met that works at the South Loop has been very friendly and accommodating. The facility is always clean and has all the equipment I need. The gym is also very close to my work.
Friendly staff, clean and updated equipment and a consistent effort to engage with the community.
It’s a great facility and Antonio Coke is the best fitness instructor on the planet! The other staff is incredible as well. Love Shell! Oh and the Café staff. Super nice.
FFC has all the equipment you would ever need to reach any goals. They are constantly updating and staying current with the latest trends in fitness. The club is always spotless and everyone on their staff is friendly and personable. The location is unbeatable. I am also an orange level member which for a one […]
I really enjoy the classes, Keith Kimble is amazing. The gym is always clean and even during busy times it’s not overly crowded and wait times for machines is never long or unbearable.
Very clean and modern and great staff
Always clean – that is super important! Everything is kept in good condition and state of the art is there. Friendly staff as well who have been around for a very long time!
The professionalism and courtesy of the staff are at a very high level. The locker room and facilities (especially the pool) are very nice.
FFC has been great! I mostly go to the South Loop location and always appreciate how clean it is (it never smells like a sweaty gym), the variety of equipment, and how awesome your staff is. Brittany at South Loop is very helpful with any membership questions, and always greats me with a smile. I […]
Nazha, I just wanted to tell you how much your TREAD class has helped me! I am a runner and triathlete. My annual training schedule doesn’t change too much year to year. The only thing different I have done this year over last year was to add your class to my Wednesday workout. I started […]
I mentioned it in person already but I wanted to put it also in writing how great Steve has been in helping me find a good workout routine. He’s nice, friendly, good to spend time with, inspiring, and very qualified. A great asset for FFC! Thanks again for connecting us.
I joined this gym on a whim and I am so glad that I did. Once I signed up they randomly paired me with a trainer so I could utilize my complimentary PT sessions. When I showed up to my session I sat down with Kara to explain what I wanted to achieve in our […]
I wanted to take a moment to compliment the Kid’s Club. All three of my children absolutely LOVE coming to the club. I am more than impressed with the staff, cleanliness, and security. They take the time to greet us and our children and make us feel welcome. ALL staff we have had the pleasure […]
Sam Gonzalez was my personal trainer extraordinaire! He not only educated me on core training, but he was a gentle guide in combining the physical and mental components. Thank you Sam!
I’ve been a member for over 14 years and have trained for 7 triathlons there. I have not found a better place than FFC Union Station. As I’ve gotten to grow there, the staff is great and I feel very comfortable there being myself and that is huge at a gym.
I want to thank Kyle Pecka. Kyle and I have made great strides with my strength and range of motion. His knowledge of fitness and golf related fitness have really helped.
