Anyone in printers row know of good gyms around ~$50? Looking to avoid LA Fitness at SouthGate or XSport (reviews seem to agree - they are a mess). FFC is just not in the cards rn.

That’s pretty much it in the area. Only other places are Equinox in the Loop, Orangetheory, and a few CrossFit and Boxing gyms.

Xsport is not that bad, except it’s crowded as hell

Current xsport goer on state and it’s the worst Xsport in IL. I’ve been to all of them. The people there are ignorant monkies that dont clean after themselves and put weights back. The front desk and leasing is even worse. Id take La Fitness south loop > xsport

We need a chicago athletic club down here 😡

I go to the west loop Chicago athletic club and it’s $69 a month for me

Fit results!! 100%

What is it monthly?

Blink Fitness on Archer and Ashland is great for the price if you’re willing to commute out a bit (10 mins)

I go to XSport. Definitely not the greatest gym but for the price and location (relative to where I live) it’s fine.

Yeah the one on state

Lakeview resident - I did XSport for about a year at ~$45 and it was fine, just crowded if you went after work (before work was decent). Switched to CAC for almost double the monthly price ($81) but it was bc I needed a pool at the time and Xsport had it closed. CAC is WAY nicer and WAY less crowded so I’ll def stay here despite the higher price.

I went to LPAC before and loved it. Unfortunately CAC doesnt have a location near me.

When I lived in the South Loop I had no issues with Xsport. I’d avoid the one off North Ave in Old Town

Any advice for asking to work from home?
I started my job just over a month ago and the one day a week I work from home I absolutely love. I have an hour commute to the office all other days and I'd love to even just get one more day at home. My manager is not aware of my adhd and I have crippling fear and shame around it so I'd rather not tell him. The office environment I'm in is honestly any neuroduvergent's nightmare. I know it's probably wrong to not tell him but I don't want any judgement.

And the reason I mentioned lean PCOS is because it seems for others with PCOS part of the fertility path is diet/exercise/weight loss but I am already very tiny.
