Latest News Around the Clubs


Locker Room Facility Update as of 10/20

Attention members: please be aware that most of the men’s locker room will be closed for the next 5 weeks as we complete similar renovations as the women’s locker room. We should be able to re-open part of the locker room next week for storage and changing, however the sinks, showers, toilets and steam room will not reopen until project completion, which should be just before Thanksgiving. We have a lot to be thankful for!
We are also pleased to announce the women’s locker room facilities project is finally complete! Check out pictures of the amazing new facility updates below. We’re so excited to be able to share these improvements with you!

Congratulations to Brittany Cunningham, FFC Halsted & Belmont’s October Member of the Month! We asked Brittany about her experience at FFC, and here’s what she had to share:

What does membership at FFC mean to you?

FFC has connected me with several amazing individuals in the personal training and Pilates departments. I probably would have quit before I even really got started if it hadn’t been for Brandon Kiraly (sadly no longer with FFC, but will someday be the best physical therapist a person could ask for!) I wouldn’t be able to run without pain, move with purpose, stand tall with proper posture, or do cool tricks like Arabesque or Snake without Zara Espinoza. I wouldn’t have developed the courage to embrace my body’s strength (and venture downstairs to the weights!) without Jamie Labriola.

I am a very different person both physically and mentally than I was 3+ years ago, and it’s in no small part to my time spent at FFC.

When at FFC, you will find me…

Either performing fun tricks in the Pilates studio or picking heavy things up and putting them down on the weight room floor.

I work out to…

Music. I have a few Pandora stations I rotate through. Plenty of pop, rock, classic rock, movie soundtracks, and the occasional musical number.
