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.
Really listened/listens to my goals and needs! Best think about the club so far!!
One of the most used and valued membership benefit are the group fitness classes. I would like to provide a shout out to one of my favorite instructors, David Bohn! He knows how to throw in a joke here and there during the workout session to help me forget how tired I am or better […]
I have been going to FFC since April 2015 and I have loved the concept of FFC where they focus on quality and results. I am currently training with Collin Cusack and he is a very dedicated trainer. He is extremely focused during all my sessions and ensures I do all the exercises in the […]
I wanted to thank Jessica Frank, I appreciate all her efforts and guidance that she are puts into my workout sessions. When I joined FFC a month ago I was little worried and hesitated for my fitness as my case is not like any other normal case. However since I have started taking sessions from […]
I tell people all the time that Fitness Formula Clubs are easily the best fitness experience in Chicago. I’ve belonged to every club in the city over the last 25 years and as soon as I walked in to Gold Coast FF 11 years ago, I knew I’d found my Fitness home! Really friendly personnel […]
Thanks Sharon. Ryan is a huge asset to FFC. I have shared this with several people I know and would recommend him to be a trainer for virtually any age group, profile or ability.
Always clean (always the maintenance staff appear happy and it shows in the pride in their work). Great, friendly staff from the front desk to trainers . Equipment is in great condition (repairs are made very timely). Other members are friendly. I always recommend FFC South Loop.
I joined based on customer service, cleanliness of the facility, and amenities. I’ve had nothing but a pleasant experience. Even the other members are friendly.
I’m very impressed with FFC as a whole. The cleanliness is the first thing I noticed coming in to the gym. Most national peer chain gyms look and smell like public bus stations and FFC lives up to the “health club” standard. Always impressed at the customer service and how problems are quickly fixed. I’ve […]
FFC is the first gym that I have belonged to which has really lived up to every marketing slogan I feel it has put out. The entire membership program was laid out clearly, even how I would go about cancelling my membership if and when I had to. The Halsted gym is immaculately clean and […]
I love FFC! Great place to workout, clean, plenty of machines to use. I’ve never had to wait for equipment. Friendly staff, since I joined this summer my husband joined a few months later. We’re very happy with FFC!
Great amenities – facility is kept very clean and I love the steam room and eucalyptus towels and other nice details in the changing rooms. Lockers are clean and the classes are great! Also I like that you can go to many different location. The price is worth these additional amenities to me.
I have belonged to several gyms in various states across the country. FFC is by far the best-equipped, best-staffed, and most “bang for your buck” than any of them. The people who work at the club, from the trainers to the locker room attendants, are a pleasure to be around.
First of all, Employees,Employees,Employees!!! Thats what makes this out of all the FFC clubs, in my experience has been so excellent I wouldn’t even consider another club even if it was cheaper and right next door. Everyone is family to me and i actually look forward to working out and I HATE working out. Great […]
Great classes are offered at a variety of times I’m just getting back into working out after having my first baby. I was super nervous to use child care but my friends (who also belong to FFC south loop) assured me that FFC childcare is wonderful and it is. Which is a huge thing for […]
Hello, I had my daughter’s first birthday party at the Lincoln Park location yesterday. I just wanted to drop a note and say how amazing everything was. Nneka was our point of contact throughout the planning process and my family and I could not have been more impressed with how she handled everything. All emails […]
I’ve been wanting to share feedback about Lindy for quite some time. She is absolutely fabulous and a jewel to the FFC South Loop. I’ve been taking her class for not quite a year and she continues to be one of the highlights of it. I’ve definitely felt myself become more confident in class which, […]
Just want to give positive feedback. Felicia recently filled in as Yoga instructor at a 7 am class at Union Station. It was the best yoga class I’ve ever had at FFC. Great mix of challenge and instruction. It would be great to have her on the regular rotation.
Hi Bob, I wanted to take a few minutes of my time to express my satisfaction at Union Station FFC thus far. Every single person on your team from sales to trainers to maintenance to housekeeping has provided nothing but exceptional customer service; I cannot recall a time when I did not. Your sincere, friendly […]
Hi Larry, This email is actually a few weeks overdue and I wanted to make sure to rectify my error. Several weeks ago, after being at the Gold Coast location since April 11th (when I “officially” started my workouts as part of the Northwestern Cardiac Rehabilitation program), I almost immediately encountered Dwayne. He is one […]
I just wanted to give kudos to trainer Joe Dankowski. Yesterday when I was completing a squat, I immediately felt like I had pulled my hamstring muscle in my right leg. I was so afraid that I hurt myself and that I would be out of commission from working out, which would be the worst […]
So often times we experience a member’s not-so-pleasant experience to perhaps improve or change a certain aspect of our operations. It’s always a pleasure when one provides us with a thoughtful, positive statement – one that I wanted to share with you all…. Little background…. I hired Gume’ Diaz as our housekeeper full-time in 2010. […]
My membership means so much, and more than just losing weight. The staff here in Oak Park are exceptional. Guillermo Moreno who has been my trainer for almost 5 months is the most positive person and really pushes me to my limits. And because of that I’ve lost 40 lbs in about 4 and a […]
Hi, I wanted to share a bit about my experience at the South Loop location. Before joining this club, I had visited many gyms in the area but felt that the FFC South Loop was the best choice for me. From the start, Mikey was the best person to get me signed up. He did […]
The club in Oak Park had a ton of fantastic amenities, the trainers are very personable, and there was a variety of equipment for any type of workout regiment that I would choose. In addition, the FFC service in general is top quality out of all the gyms I’ve been to, and though it’s not […]
Hello Jason! I just wanted to take this opportunity to acknowledge Ilana, Carla, and Jack for their stellar service in supporting my ongoing fitness goals. I’m not one for Facebook and other social media postings, as I feel a letter of acknowledgement is much more professional and purposeful. As a regional manager in the retail […]
I am so excited for being a member of the South Loop FFC. I joined the Pilates mat class with Linda with hesitation and it literally changed my life! Linda is reading your body, and she knows how to get the best of you. Even though I joined the class disappointed and in a bad […]
Dear Jason: In customer-service businesses like yours, it’s all too often that customers go out of their way to make note of the negative. I’m writing for the opposite reason. I want you to know how thoroughly impressed my wife Lisa and I are with your facility, your team, and in particular, one young Personal […]
The staff at FFC Gold Coast has become my family over the last 9-10 years. Every person I have met throughout the years has been trained to provide great customer service, is educated, and has a passion for fitness and proper nutrition. I can’t say enough about Larry, the General Manager, as well. Having him […]
I love my Pilates with Linda and the education and support she gives me. I love my training with Trainer Ben Timmis and his patience, vast knowledge, and attention to detail. The front desk staff is very friendly. The locker rooms are very clean, although high powered hand dryers would be a nice improvement. More […]
