    good gym in NW Chicago

    well i have been lifting at XSport in the NW side of Chicago for the past few years...nice gym...allows chalk...good amount of equipment....

    but lately they have been going down the drain...replaced powerracks with boxing bags...hundreds of people in the gym 'socializing' and standing around, NEVER have the air on...its always hot and humid....place is a real mess....

    I NEED A NEW GYM!!!

    any sugestions to a good gym in NW Chicago or the NW suburbs?? I live near ohare airport btw

    It's not quite NW Chicago, but there is a good one on the North Side called B&W Gym. It's an old school, no nonsense gym. Has pretty much anything you would need.

    Another possible option might be the Leaning Tower YMCA at 6300 W. Touhy in Niles. They have a good weight room there.

    BP 430x1 (shirted), 320x1 (raw)
