Congratulations to Joan Harris, FFC East Lakeview’s April Member of the Month! We asked Joan about her experience at FFC, and here’s what she had to share:

What does membership at FFC mean to you?

Membership made me believe that anyone at any age could compete in a triathlon.

When at FFC, you will find me…

In Hydro-Fit, BASIC or Pilates class or swimming laps – all with terrific instructors.

I work out to…

Stay in shape, stay energized, stay happy, stay healthy, stay strong, and to participate in a triathlon.

We’d also like to congratulate Joan on an amazing, recent FIRST place finish in her age group at the FFC Gold Coast Indoor Tri and her FIRST place team finish for the FFC Lincoln Park Indoor Tri relay – way to go Joan!!

Thinking About Personal Training?

ACE Certified

Here’s what our clients are saying about personal training…

“The results I have achieved are largely due to the perfect combination of diverse training methods, individualized exercise programs & challenging yet achievable goal setting.  I also have better balance and core strength, and most importantly, working out has become part of my daily routine.”

“I received great guidance and encouragement from my trainer who has helped me work towards my goals by having me focus on exercises that worked by entire body.”

“Training for me is the perfect mix of tough and encouraging, and can help anyone of all fitness levels.  The sessions are fun and challenging and leave me sore for a week.”
“Training has helped me see that not everyone processes in the same way and I have learned how to adapt the exercises to my ability and needs.”


Tai Chi Tuesdays at 11 AM



We have had such great feedback on the Tai Chi class that we are continuing this class through end of May! Join us with “Sas” every Tuesday morning at 11 AM at FFC Gold Coast as she guides you through a workout grounded in the centuries old wisdom of longevity and harmony – TaijiFit is breathing in the shift of seasons to spring!

Take a ride along with your breath and experience the movement of your life energy – your Qi – as it begins to build after winter months. Find your balance within the shifting yin and yang energies. This slow moving meditation will align you with the energies of spring. TaijiFit combines the best elements of fitness, meditation, and the ancient martial art of Taiji. There is no routine or choreography to memorize, simply follow along, and go with the flow.

The classes are complimentary for FFC members / $30 per class for non members. Visit the Fitness Desk to learn more!
