We’re encouraging our members to get moving and re-establish a regular fitness routine this October with our A Treat For You challenge!

Check in to FFC 20 times during the month of October, and you’ll receive:

  • 2 guest passes on your account to share with friends or family (guests must be 18 years or older and have a valid Illinois ID)
  • The chance to win a free 90 minute massage–now that’s what we call a treat!

Ready to participate? Simply head to the club for your workouts and we’ll keep track of your visits on our end. We’ll let you know via email when you’re halfway there and when you’ve completed the challenge. Good luck!

Your 20 check-ins do not need to be at the same FFC location – we will track your visits across our 10 clubs. There is a max of one qualifying visit per day. You will be automatically entered to win a free 90 minute massage once you have reached 20 visits, and your guest passes will be added to your FFC account. We will give away one free 90 minute massage per club location; 10 total massages will be awarded. The guest passes and massage reward are non-transferable and have no cash value. Program is valid from October 1 – October 31, 2021.

Member of the Month at FFC

Congratulations to FFC Old Town’s October member of the month, Suyu! Suyu answered a few questions for us about being a member at FFC:

  1. What does membership at FFC mean to you? 

FFC membership gives me access to great trainers like Hizzi. FFC gave me the opportunity to be trained and achieve my workout goals. FFC membership also gives me opportunities to learn and ask questions about health and nutrition.

  1. When I am at FFC you will find me…

You can find me with my trainer Hizzi. He has created a training program for me that focuses on losing weight and gaining muscle. We usually have two sessions per week, one focusing on strength and the other on functional training. I also try to go to FFC on my own once a week to do a cardio workout.

  1. I work out to…

My goal was mainly to lose weight. After 3 months of training and eating according to Hizzi’s training plan, I was able to lose 61 pounds, and I formed a better relationship with food. I plan to continue my training to achieve my next goal of gaining more muscle.
