In today's workplace, sleeveless, bicep-broadcasting business suits are a common sight, and deal-closing golf games are eschewed in favor of sweat-slicked cage matches. Get in shape to vault over the corporate ladder with today's Groupon. For $49, new customers get one 30-minute massage ($112), one personal training session ($112 value), and a seven-day membership ($25 value) from David Barton Gym, a $250 value.

At first sight, David Barton Gym might appear to be an art gallery or swank pad complete with pounded steel plating and leather-wrapped door handles, but a second glance reveals a 30,000-square-foot fitness haven overlooking the Chicago River. The designer gym is loaded with free weights, cardio machines, a spin studio, steam rooms, a Russian bath, and a space for yoga class. Meet up with an experienced hardbody personal trainer and melt fat like a George Foreman grill with a barrage of pushups, sit-ups, or 20 minutes on the TV-topped elliptical machine. Renew your will with a massage from one of Barton's three full-time therapists and let them unkink the knots that prevent you from having the strength needed to throw a dictionary through a thicker dictionary.

If you look forward to going to the gym instead of dreading it, you'll be more apt to stay on track with your fitness routine. That's why the friendly staff at David Barton designed their hall of fitness to make you feel like a celebrity. When you hand them a sopping, stinky towel, they'll say "Thanks" and nail it up on their trophy wall, and when you emerge from the sauna pampered with luxurious soaps and lotions, you'll be swarmed by a hired staff of children screaming for autographs.

Reviews

Time Out Chicago awarded David Barton Best Locker Room and Best Upscale Gym on its list of Chicago's Best Gyms 2010. Centerstage Chicago loves the gym, and 70 Yelpers and 20 Citysearchers agree, giving the gym four stars.

  • To say that it's hip is an understatement, with its in-lobby fireplace suspended from the ceiling and DJ spinning in the corner... This is a gym for people who want results (its slogan, after all, is "Look Better Naked"), and it's very serious about how it goes about that. – Kate Schwartz, Centerstage
  • I love the sprawling room, full of free weights and machines as well as cardio equipment facing the Chicago River (hello, rowers and architecture-boat-tour peeps!). Plus, three large studios offer everything from Spinning to yoga to boot-camp classes. – Kevin Aeh, Time Out
  • You’ll want to work out daily just to have access to the Bumble and bumble hair-care products in the showers... But before we hit the shower, we always make time for a steam and sauna; they’re the best (read: biggest) we’ve seen at any gym in the city. – Jessica Herman, Time Out
  • Really impressed with the classes and level of service you get from the trainers - I swear I had visible abs after an hour of boot camp! Even if you don't sign on for personal training sessions, there's usually a trainer available who will offer enough guidance to get you started with a routine. – Sabrina S., Yelp

David Barton Gym

At first sight, David Barton Gym might appear to be an art gallery or swank pad complete with pounded steel plating, leather-wrapped door handles, and weekly DJ sets, but a second glance reveals a 30,000-square-foot fitness haven overlooking the Chicago River. The designer gym is loaded with free weights, cardio machines, a group cycling studio, steam rooms, a Russian bath, and a studio for yoga class. Meet up with an experienced hardbody personal trainer and melt fat like a George Foreman grill with a barrage of pushups, sit-ups, or 20 minutes on the TV-topped elliptical machine. Renew your will from the on-site therapist from Delos Wellness and let them unkink the knots that prevent you from having the strength needed to throw a dictionary through a thicker dictionary.
