Over the years I have belonged to several well-known health clubs in downtown Chicago but never one that excels in all areas. FFC has exceeded my expectations. The club is beautifully maintained and all areas are immaculately clean. The facilities are state of the art and after a challenging work-out, the spa services are heavenly! The staff is friendly and very helpful.
As for the personal trainers, to say Jessica Frank is superb is an understatement. I have had back problems and Achilles tendinosis for a number of years and was completely out of shape when Jessica and I teamed up three months ago. I was concerned about injuring myself but Jessica has created a safe yet challenging work-out routine that is whipping me into shape and makes me feel strong, healthy and has significantly reduced and at times, completely eliminated my back pain. She is personal trainer, physical therapist and miracle worker rolled into one!!
In just a few months, I have lost nearly 25 lbs., about 2.5 inches off my waist and chest and close to 4% body fat. I used to dread working out and now I look forward to my training sessions with Jess.I am never bored as Jess varies our work-out routines and continues to motivate me to safely push myself a little harder each time. She really has a gift for assessing an individual from both a physical and psychological perspective and for designing an exercise program that fully integrates the mind-body connection.
My FFC membership has meant getting my health back and feeling good again. I also love all the compliments I am starting to receive as I make my way to a trimmer and fitter version of myself. Never thought I would say that I like working out, but the “FFC experience” has made it a reality. Thank you FFC and most of all, thank you Jess!
