This is definitely a no-frills gym, with just your basic stuff: weights, cardio machines and fitness classes. If you want to take your classes in private, go elsewhere, the 'open' class area in the center of the gym has everyone watching you while they work out.
Located in Lincoln Park in Chicago, you can enter it from many angles, mainly because it's free. You can be enjoying your picnic in the park or be playing frisbee one minute, and walk right into the zoo to visit the animals the next! The zoo itself may not be that extensive, but it's a great zoo for the price!
When we moved into our new house and quickly realized that we had a flea problem, I called Western Exterminator. For a low monthly rate, they'll come out regularly to make sure the pests are gone and they don't return.
This Hollywood Video is huge, with a great selection of new releases and classics. Their generous policy on returning films makes it easy to avoid late fees. Recommended!!!
I wanted to find a couple of classic films, but their film selection was pathetic. When I couldn't find those, I searched for some newer releases, which they were out of. I came away empty-handed and found the dvds at a local privately-owned store. Shame on Blockbuster that they couldn't compete with the Mom & Pop. I won't even bother with them again.
This 24 Hour Fitness health club offers more than your basic health club. There's an indoor lap pool, pilates classes on pilates machines and raquetball courts. It's a good gym for those who want more options in their workouts.
I love the small classes this personal fitness center offers. They are reasonably priced and give you a great workout. The class size limitations make sure you get one-on-one attention and don't let you give up.
If Koreatown is convenient to you, this health club should work for you. It's nothing fancy, but has all your essentials. I like the lunchtime hatha yoga classes. It's a good break in your stressful day.
This Yoga studio has three studios and offers all kinds of yoga from restorative, to prenatal. I've gone to the prenatal yoga classes several times and have been impressed. Because of it's size, it can accomodate almost anyone's busy schedule.
I highly recommend this salon, located conveniently in the Gold Coast just north of the Loop. I've used them for haircuts and hair color and have always been pleased. It isn't cheap, but they do a great job.
