The staff there is horrible and there are few good aerobics classes that are at pretty crappy times. Just like many big corporations, World Gym tries to rip you off at every opportunity. The only reason I'm there is that it is the closest gym to my home. And I keep a close eye on how much money they take out each month!!! Beware: if you sign up for a certain-length contract, you will automatically be transferred to month-to-month once it is up. So don't think you're not getting charged once your ""deactivation date"" comes up.

I've been a member since December 2004. Considering the gym's large space and numerous types of available equipment, it's definitely an excellent gym for the self-motivated. It's very diverse, too (i.e. an excellent mix of gay, straight, black, white, asian, latino, male, female, fat, fit, etc. members; everyone seems to feel comfortable here). When I signed up it was a great value (perhaps the best of any large gym found in Chicago's lakefront neighborhoods: $70.37 per month, which includes me AND my spouse, for a 2 year contract), also. There is a renovation planned for the summer of 2006, and a lot of new equipment has already arrived. I imagine the rates may increase for new members, as a result.

One of the worst gyms I've ever belonged to - in Chicago or anywhere else. Cardio equipment is often broken - takes months in many cases to get them fixed. A lot of the equipment is old or worn down and needs replacing. Definitely wouldn't recommend it - hoping a new gym opens in the area.

This place is pretty large. Two floors, plenty of free weights and machines, a ton of cardio, and it's not very busy. The hours are really convenient too. Normally I hate gyms but this one is pretty comfortable to be in. Highly recommended. Sadly, the staff isn't very vocal unless you speak to them. Good people but lack a little energy. Easy to get around it though.

i must say, that world gym is the best gym, i have been a member of.. i have belonged to gyms all over from new york to california & i love this place. 1st off the staff is great, the managers Jason & Letty are great with members, they make each visit a wonderful experience. The free weight area is huge.. plenty of treadmills .... & if you like cardio kickboxing classes, then you have to take Steve's monday night class!!! He makes billy blank's tae bo (however you spell it) seem amaturish!! i highly reccomend this gym, everything about it is great!!
