By far, the best kept private gym secret in the south suburbs. Been a member since they opened around the turn of the century. Largest indoor track in South suburbs and best basketball court u can find for lunchtime hoops!

A variety of classes with incredible instructors and a pool. Of course there is workout equipment. Very family friendly offering programs for the little ones as well as older kids. It’s a neighborhood gem. And gets very busy in the after-work hours and in the morning on weekends.

The healing from the sauna, therapy pool, and whirlpool have been beyond my expectations. I have very tight muscles from broken neck and spinal cord crushing. I can almost walk normally after just a few weeks. Should have started a year ago!
