Dingy looking building. For how much they want a month anyone could afford a nicer facility. E

I love this gym because there is no loud music pumping over the speakers and the people that workout there are down-to-earth and are there to work out, not to show off.

If going to the Lombard branch, I suggest going during daylight. A client got his car broken in around 9, just after his workout

It is a small gym. The St. Johns location is far larger and has a better selection of classes, including Zumba- which the Alberta location does not offer. Both are attached to a video store, which was odd at first but really doesn't effect the gym at all. I will say that my least favorite part of this gym is the temperature. Last week when it was in the high 90's they didn't even have the air conditioning on- it was unbearable hot, I had to cut my workout short. Things I really love are the classes, the rock wall machine and the waterbed massage- perfect after a workout and included in your membership/ groupon!!

Was very dissapointed to learn how expensive it would be to join the gym after purchasing the Groupon... Would have been a no-brainer to join/begin paying monthly dues!

From Our Editors

From her days in the Navy to a love for yoga, Terri Chadney has always been into fitness. In 1994, she and her husband, Jay, opened West Coast Fitness to share that passion with her old neighborhood, which until then did not have a gym. "She wanted to reinvest in the neighborhood," Jay says. Here, the duo leads a staff of experienced trainers, who do everything from one-on-one training to group fitness classes such as yoga and spinning. As the yoga director, Terri requires that each yoga instructor have at least five years of teaching experience, thorough training, and a perfect letter B imitation. The rest of the staff boasts similar credentials, such as the Zumba instructor who has been dancing professionally for most of her life. And because they're not contractors, the trainers care about every aspect of the gym, not just making a sale. "They really invest themselves with the members," says Jay, "Our [trainers] come in, hang out, take classes, bring their dog."

For Jay and Terri, the most rewarding part of owning West Coast Fitness has been "seeing changes in the members," says Jay. He sees members who are in better shape than when they first joined 15 years ago—and Terri loves to see the seniors in her yoga classes up on their feet and doing strength-training exercises after coming in with crutches or walkers.

The St. John's location's spinning studio includes a 6-foot screen, sending riders on virtual trips via instructive DVDs even when a class isn't in session. Members can also log in to ActivTrax online or at the clubs' kiosks for custom workouts based on their goals and experience, as well as meal planning and progress tracking. The staff members engage parents' little ones with baby-sitting services in a colorful playroom. They have also stocked the gyms with tanning booths, and massage therapists help soothe stress and exercise-induced aches; the saunas and HydroMassage beds also help members unwind.
