The entire staff is amazing and I’ve had some great experiences with the trainers. I have recommended 3 people and two of them have join the gym.
What I can share with others is that my experience at FFC East Lakeview has a profound effect on my quality of life. The club has plenty of equipment to use for those who prefer that type of exercise, but it is the group classes which impress me the most. The classes are thoughtful concepts […]
Great facility. Good staff. Friendly atmosphere great food. Yoga teachers. Very clean and well maintained. Feel like it’s my second home
love FFC! I already did recommend you to all of my coworkers. We try to get there as often as possible for the positive environment, great classes, plentiful equipment, and clean facilities. Thanks!
Love this gym! The classes are great and staff is friendly. Also Derek, one of the massage therapists, is amazing!
Amazing instructors – Keith Kimble and Rebecca Faria are my favorites!
FFC is a great gym for several reasons: -I love that the gym is big and I never have to wait in line to use the equipment -There are a ton of great classes to choose from, I especially love Antonio’s Chisel class on Monday nights -The trainers and class instructors are great -There is […]
Love the location. Staff is always friendly. The place is super clean. Makes you feel like you belong.
My trainer, Nate Levitt, is what keeps me coming back. First, he listened to my fitness objectives and makes them happen at every session. He pushes me, but appreciates my boundaries as well. And amazingly personable and friendly.
In all of the gyms I have been to, none compare to FFC due to the facilities, atmosphere and trainers. My girlfriend and I have been training with Greg for a year and it was the best health decision we ever made. The best thing about Greg is that he works with us on our […]
This is well overdue – Jessica Frank is my trainer. I started with her when I joined the club in 2014, but I didn’t get serious about the whole thing until February of 2015. I started taking all of the group Pilates classes I could. I try to get in a weekly 1:1 session with […]
The club is a mainstay for anyone like me who wants to live a healthy life. I have gotten 10 years younger since I joined 10 years ago! The staff is uniformly friendly and responsible. The facilities are excellent and kept very clean. Not sure how you manage to do that,,, US ffc is a […]
I have been working out at FFC Gold Coast for about 8 months now. It is by far one of the best gyms in Chicago! It has everything and more that an exercise enthusiast needs. Great staff, the BEST trainers, and always clean. I hurt my back while squatting a couple months ago. This was […]
Having gone there for 8 months I have been very successful losing weight and building muscle – I have lost 30 lbs.! I owe it to my amazing trainer, Louie Nissan and also my nutritionist, Carla Schmitz. They both have motivated me and are a great team. In addition I like how clean the club […]
I love the new spin bikes at LP FFC! It makes class so much better to have numbers to measure effort and keep track of progress. By the way, I enjoy all of the classes I attend at the LP location but I was lucky enough to score a spot in Keith’s spin class on […]
I love FFC! The group classes are great- fun and challenging. I participate in spinning, yoga, pilates, and fitkick. The Kids Club is excellent. My kids love it there and I completely trust the employees. We now take advantage of the PNO program, which is fantastic- an adult dinner and happy kids!
FFC continues to take advantage of the three legged approach, price, quality and customer service. Need I say more.
I am just writing with positive feedback about the one class I took last night. On a short notice at Halsted street Monday May 2, due to precaution of carbon monoxide, Erin Sneed was asked on short notice to take her fitcore, spin, and amped up classes and have them on the turf, but make […]
Phoebe is the most friendly person at the front desk across all the FFC facilities I go to. My personal trainer, Austin is great….and even Letti who works in the women’s locker room is very supportive and friendly to me each time we meet. While I thought this would be the least “neighborly” gym, people […]
The effort put into this gym is the exact experience you back from it. Positive energy creates more positive energy, using the tools provided (equipment, classes, and staff) will keep you pleased with your membership.
I just wanted to send a note and tell you about a wonderful instructor you have: Becca Russo. About 3 weeks ago I was attending the Saturday noon Zumba class. Unfortunately, I injured my leg but Becca jumped to respond and help me. She not only called for assistance, she went way out of her […]
Hi Marcus, It was great to finally chat to you today. I have been so impressed with Chelsea, and love working with her so much that I wanted to provide a testimonial to show just how fantastic she, and the FFC team, is. Hopefully I’ll see you over the next couple of weeks before I […]
So far, the decision to join FFC has been one of the best decisions I have made in a while.
Pilates with Jessica is fun! I definitely felt stronger after repeated sessions. I have less post-op pain as a result of pilates and my posture improved as well. The studio is very nice and I always feel comfortable there. Jess is a great motivator and I love that she follows up and stays on her […]
When I first joined FFC in January I figured it would be like any other time I joined a gym; I would join the resolution crowd and be done in a month. From the time I toured the club until now, I can honestly say, this is one of the best decisions I have made […]
I have been training regularly in the Pilates room with Jessica Frank for almost 2 years now with great results! The Pilates machines create unique ranges of motion that have improved my flexibility and strength in areas that are difficult to target with the equipment on the floor. Jessica is a very attentive trainer that […]
First things first, I don’t like working out but but because of the hours, location and staff, going to the 311 Fitness Center become a part of my everyday life.The staff is always courteous and upbeat and the gym is always kept clean. I have been working with Josh, one of the personal trainers at […]
I have seen Skip on two different occasions due to knee issues as well as upper back/shoulders/neck stiffness and trigger points that were acting up. I was hesitant at first knowing a few things about MAT but never having experienced a thorough session myself. There are not enough good things to say about how I […]
I wanted to thank the entire team. I’d never joined a ‘real’ gym before, and everyone has been incredibly friendly and helpful. Plus the facility is always ready to rock, which is dope.
My experience as a member of FFC East Lakeview is so very rewarding. I use the club for group classes and those classes have been very instrumental in aiding me to enhance my physical fitness. With few exceptions, the group fitness instructors are I’ve worked with have been skilled trainers who are excellent at the […]
FFC is an affordable gym that is beginning to feel like a second home to me. With a vide variety of cardio machines, weight equipment I never feel that I can’t get do the workout that I want. The fitness classes and instructors are really great, and give fancy expensive gyms tons of competition. All […]
Hi Ellyse, As we discussed last week, here are some of the reasons I like the 311 Fitness Center. As you know, I use it regularly, 3 or 4 days per week on average, for individual exercise and personal training, and I think it is a valuable amenity for the building. Convenience. Having the gym […]
I just wanted to let you know that the early morning spin classes with Erin are fantastic! She is so motivational, energetic and I absolutely love her workouts. She has turned me from a mediocre evening exerciser to a dedicated hardcore morning spinner. I have no problem waking up in the morning knowing I will […]
The facilities and staff are great. I have been working with a personal trainer, Patrick O’Brien, and I can confidently say that he has guided me to a level of fitness that I have never had before. Not only would I recommend the FFC, I would highly recommend the FFC personal trainers.
I have been a member for over a year of your club and I wanted to compliment you and your staff for an excellent club, excellent staff and wonderful classes you offer. All your Staff , Myles included, always make me feel so welcome. Each class is well run, and well balanced for an excellent […]
We loved the: cleanliness, the friendliness of the entire staff, the classes available, Tess the coolest trainer on the planet, the hours, the close location to our home, the variety offered, and the offering of a Kids Club. And, the Kids Club provided a sense of community. They did an A++ job with our son […]
I am writing to tell you about one of your employees, Luann Stockfleth, whom I think is fabulous. Since I work in the building, I work out around 4x per week around 11 a.m. I am a big advocate of the HIIT class. In every class, Luann is energetic, fun and motivating. She always strives […]
Just a note letting you know that Luann and Akilah did a great job with the new schedule and classes for the fall season. They are always so helpful and always willing to work with me for ways of improvement. New schedule gets new people involved and new friends made. The new classes really give […]
Being a member at FFC means coming from a long day of work and relieving my stress. Coming into a friendly and welcoming environment makes FFC the best gym in the city. Getting a good work out in after a long day helps me feel in touch with my mind and body. The classes are […]
