FFC Park Ridge is truly an oasis for fitness lovers. Not only a health club, the 67,000 square foot wellness center is full of energizing and invigorating social and wellness spaces that will empower members and provide a home-away-from-home experience for the community.

However, it is the member experience that will truly differentiate this “third place” from others. FFC’s relentless pursuit to exceed member expectations and employ the friendliest, most-qualified and engaged team in the industry results in the superior customer service that is fundamental to the DNA of FFC.

This dedication to quality and community will be apparent whether you are being greeted at the front desk, checking your child into Kids’ Club, receiving your new member fitness consultation, enjoying a spa treatment or enjoying one of the many other opportunities this club has to offer.

Climbing Wall

Indoor rock climbing is the pinnacle of understanding your body and your environment. It is at once an individual sport and a group sport. At our Park Ridge climbing wall, we strive to seamlessly combine strength, balance, and endurance into each movement. Fitness Formula Clubs provides some of the best rock climbing setups around.

Much like martial arts or gymnastics, it is not just a physical endeavor, but a great way to develop one’s problem solving skills. Rock climbing is not only a great way to work out while having fun, but it will change the way you move, think, and feel about yourself.

FFC offers some of the best climbing wall classes anywhere.
