Mr. Duncan and his colleagues run an excellent program in all ways. Above all, they listen and do a very good job of meeting the needs of the members. I have had the pleasure of being an FFC member for the past several years. With only rare exceptions have my needs not been met or […]

A friend recommended me to the gym and I would kindly do the same for another. The gym is so well maintained and the locker rooms are always impeccable. The staff is so friendly and the trainers are great as well.
I enjoy FFC East Lakeview because there are always available lanes to swim in every time I go. I also belong to the LVAC; however, I will be cancelling my membership because I always have to share a lane and I have been hit several times while trying to swim there.
Clean & well maintained machines (and plenty of them), friendly/knowledgeable/helpful staff, great locker rooms, location, hours — all fantastic
My name is Kevin and I absolutely love this gym. I have never been happier at a gym before. The staff up front is great, the trainers are super friendly and knowledgeable and the membership staff goes above and beyond for the members. I have told many friends about this gym but words can not […]
I am writing to share about a portion of my personal training session tonight with Igor Melnik that stood out to me and made me realize what a great gym I belong to. A gym with excellent staff and trainers who go above and beyond in their daily tasks. I have been training Igor for […]
I want to commend the ladies that work in the locker rooms and cleaning the machines… front lobby etc. Everytime I go, they are hard at work and very friendly and welcoming….Every time I have needed assistance with anything in the showers.. or even when I absentmindedly forget which locker I used that day, they […]
I loved everything about this club. Barrett has always been helpful anytime I’ve ever asked anything of him. Jeff is awesome and always says hello any time i’m there. The volleyball league has grown from nothing to a great league with Michele’s leadership. I’m pretty sure Tanya gives the best massages in the world, but […]
I have been training with Angelina for about six weeks. She is a great personal trainer – very knowledgeable and fun. The front staff are very professional and friendly. I like that the gym is always clean and the equipment is always in good working condition. It is an excellent facility with very good staff.
Staff is always professional, everybody at the desk always says hello ” how are you doing, enjoy your workout” making you feel welcomed into the club, and when you walk out after your workout desk staff try to make a point to say goodbye to you when you walk out. You might think this is […]
Super clean facility which is extremely important to me. Friendly courteous staff. Equipment is up to date, latest machines. Great location, views of downtown. Guests are respectful as well, dedicated to working out VS socializing as I have seen in other gyms.
I have been a member at other gyms before and I think FFC is the best gym membership I’ve had. The price is a little steep (I am an orange member) but I frequent the West Loop location and love the outdoor pool. Also, I have never had to wait for a machine and I […]
FFC Halsted provides high quality equipment and classes in a clean and comfortable setting. Most importantly, there is a strong sense of community and friendliness at FFC Halsted.
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 […]
