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.

Children playing at daycare Kids Club

After nearly a year and a half, we are reopening our Kids Club at FFC West Loop. While our reopening date has not yet been determined, we wanted to share the news that the Club’s new hours will be Monday/Wednesday/Friday/Saturday from 9 AM to 12 PM and Tuesday/Thursday from 4 to 7 PM. As soon as we have a confirmed opening date, we will be sure to let you know! 

Also new this year, we have created a Startfit program as part of the Kids Club here at West Loop. All children (except those 2 and under will go through our simple movement based program at the beginning of each drop off. This simple program will serve to lay the foundation of proper movement in a fun, accessible way for children to learn. Movement training is followed by free play for the remainder of the hours.
