From one location in the Gold Coast to 10 locations throughout the Chicago area, FFC is celebrating 40 years strong, all year long!
The company provides corporate wellness programs, health insurance reimbursable nutrition therapy services, signature group fitness programs, spa treatment services, individual and group training, physical therapy and medically based rehabilitation programs.
Each Chicagoland location is dedicated to supporting the local community. FFC is recognized by the fitness industry for creating a distinct member experience delivered by its staff professionals.
We have always worked to help those in under-served communities through organizations like By The Hand, Build, and the 11.10.02 Foundation, where our CEO and Founder serves on the board. We also donate used equipment to schools in communities that need it on a regular basis.
Our HR Department is continually expanding its education on diversity and inclusion, specifically as it relates to hiring. Before the pandemic hit and prior to the government-mandated shutdown in March 2020, we had a very diverse and inclusive workforce, before laying off 99% of our staff. As we have reopened, hiring back a diverse and inclusive workforce is of utmost priority.
FFC has helped found the Illinois Fitness Alliance to better galvanize the fitness industry, specifically in the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois. As our CEO is a founding board member, we have searched the city - from the south to the west and the north - looking for fitness businesses in under-served areas to establish social equity within the Alliance. These businesses are actively being contacted to give all fitness businesses an opportunity to have a voice with city and state officials as we move forward.
