State-of-the-art Netpulse Technology has been incorporated into our main cardio room, providing members an entertainment and workout analysis feature that maximizes their workout experience. Lakeshore SF is the only club in Chicago to feature the exclusive Netpulse Technology.

In addition to our sport and fitness facilities, we also offer inviting areas for members and guests to gather, visit, read, dine and socialize.  Located on the second floor mezzanine, our Courtside Café offers all day dine-in and grab-n-go menu options, and a full-service wine and smoothie bar.  In the summer months, our rooftop sun garden and grill provides a relaxing outdoor space and a panoramic view of Chicago’s impressive skyline.

The Club has been a part of the bustling Lincoln Park community for almost 40 years.  Originally founded as Lakeshore Athletic Club, the name was changed to Lakeshore Sport & Fitness in 2011 when a new ownership team began a multi-million dollar transformation of the Club’s programs and facilities.
