Chicago >The Trainer's Gym
Better than most. So, the gym was awesome but ugly, and now it
Chicago's Best Gym For Trainers & Clients!. As a trainer, I am so glad that I brought my clients over to Symmetry Center to train. The 14,000 sq. ft. space has ample equipment, an upbeat atmosphere, and is super convenient with valet & street parking available. The most important part is that my clients really like to be there too! If you want to run your own personal training business, I highly recommend you run it at Symmetry Center in River North!
Crowded!!. It seems like they are trying to pull in every trainer into the space and still expect their clients to endure the crowds. I've tried to recommend some ideas to the front desk but its obvious that the ownership won't listen to us as Symmetry gets the same amount with or without me (it comes from my trainer) AND they know people tend to be loyal to their trainers. If you are looking for a membership, please stay away - we have no room!
Skip this gym if you need a locker. The good reviews on this gym are dated - assume new ownership has taken over and made negative changes that don't appeal to clients but to their back pocket.
Nice Gym, No Space. I've been going to this gym for a long while now and one of the major drawbacks is the locker rooms. Maintenance is average to poor like most gyms but the space is very limited and with a recent push to add members, there is little to no space in the lockerroom to get ready in the morning. To further complicate the issue, the ownership rents out most of the lockers and allows trainers to use the best spots to keep their equipment. For professionals looking for a gym where they can get ready before or after work, I'd skip this gym as there is no space unless you live in the area and won't need to store anything in the locker room.
The Best of Many. I've worked out at many gyms and health clubs over the years and Sharper Fitness is far and away the best.
best kept secret. Great gym, the best trainers in the city. Many people that belong to Eastbank, Multiplex.etc come here to train with their trainer. See for you self.
