SHOP LOCAL! Featuring Health Clubs + Special Promotions

Andersonville,_ChicagoThis winter has been rough on all of us. For local businesses and independent shops in the neighborhood, it has been especially brutal this last winter. While we anxiously await sunny skies and warmer weather, we at the EdgeVilleBuzz want to help boost local business and support our neighbors by contributing to local businesses.

Beginning this month, we will be doing a monthly series highlighting a special product or service and some local businesses where you can purchase them. It is our way of encouraging EVB readers to consider putting at least 25% of there discretionary income back into the community they live in. Since summer is just around the corner, it’s time to shed our winter weight, and rid the cold bitter  left over love handles from our repeated polar vortex episodes. We are kicking off our monthly highlight series with gyms and fitness centers in the area! Check out the few listed below and get in on the EdgeVilleBuzz readers discount while you can!

  • Cheetah Gym – Cheetah Gym is technically a gym, but has the look and feel of an active community center with friendly faces all around. With one location in Andersonville and one in Edgewater, there are options depending on what type of look and feel you want for your workout. Both Cheetah gyms offer 2 floors of equipment with both a separate spin studio, as well as a studio dedicated for classes such as yoga, Werq Fitness, Weekend Warrior, and other vigorous workout classes.  Cheetah offers many amenities that are included in your membership such as towel service, shampoo, hair dryers, lotion, wireless internet and even free coffee before 10am. The Edgewater location has a kid’s gym that enables parents to workout without having to worry about finding childcare.  **SPECIAL** Cheetah is offering $49/month, No initiation to EVB readers through April, 2014.

  • Know No Limits Gym – Situated at 6125 N Clark, just South of Granville is Know No Limits Gym. Offering all the amenities of a large-scale gym in a smaller non-threatening environment, this gym has plenty to offer without the hype that comes in larger health and fitness centers. All of their equipment is up to date and state of the art, and because of their capped membership numbers, you should never have to wait for a machine. There are a variety of classes ranging from body cycling, circuit training, yoga, cardio boxing, and more. The gym also has a 4-person sauna and parking!
  • Edgewater Athletic Club – Located in Edgewater’s historic Sovereign Hotel at 1040 W Granville for the last 11 years is the Edewater Athlectic Club. They turned the grand ballroom into a unique workout space that is full of energy and friendly neighborhood faces. Chicago Magazine named them one of the top 10 gyms in Chicago in February 2013. EAC has a full service gym including cardio classes, dance classes, yoga/pilates, personal training, a spacious weight training room, and a pool! With so many options in such a cool space, there are many reasons to join. **SPECIAL** EAC is offering 20% off current memberships, No initiation to EVB readers through April, 2014.
